3 Essentials You Need To Go Hunting With Your Side By Side
Driving a utility vehicle is best vehicle to choose when you are
performing specialized work, or have a lot to haul. In the case of
hunting, you can usually check off both of those requirements.
A must-have for most modern day hunters is a UTV, more commonly known as a side by side. Side by sides give hunters much more access to their grounds of choice, provides some protection from the elements and takes the burden off the hunter to carry all your bulky stuff, like your prize that will soon be fresh venison sausage, a freezer full of venison steaks, or even a new 12-point whitetail trophy. Hunting is typically an all-day affair and walking around with a rifle or bow, ammo, and all the other necessities that make for a successful day on the prowl is simply not practical.
1. Choose a UTV for Hunters
Deciding which UTV side by side is
the best option for you is first decision to tackle. Polaris and
Kawasaki make popular models, and are even available in Hunter
Editions with Camo colors optional. The 2016
Ranger XP 900 EPS offers extreme performance on the hunt or
around the home. Starting at $16,299 and designed for easy
maintenance, it is a suitable option for for a first time owner.
Drivers can build out their UTVs to suit their own personal needs
with a number of accessories and add-ons help fully utilize all
that a UTV offers for the sportsman
