Top Seven ATV Accessories for ATV Hunting

Utility ATVs are great fun but they are also helpful around the farm and while hunting. ATV hunting has gained popularity not because of the ATV itself but the accessories that make getting to and from the hunting area much easier. The following are the top seven ATV accessories for ATV hunting.

  • ATV Racks and Baskets – Having a gun rack or bow rack on your ATV makes for safe and easy transport of your firearms. Adding baskets to your ATV makes it easier to haul game and supplies. There are also aftermarket racks and baskets for UTVs.
  • ATV Winch – Every utility ATV should have a winch. They are not used that often but when they are they are invaluable. An ATV winch can help free a stuck ATV or help pull your game out of a ravine or ditch.
  • Power-Loader – Load big game without physically picking up one pound! With the help of your ATV winch the Power-Loader can do the work of 2 – 3 men regardless of your age. Easily load and carry your treestand.
  • ATV Backpacker Trailer - When hunting big game such as elk or moose the ATV Backpacker trailer is a hunters best friend. With its unique drop-down design, loading your kill is a breeze. You can use this trailer year round for hauling your camping gear to those remote back country campsites.
  • ATV Luggage and Bags – A set of ATV luggage or bags provides a great place to carry extra ammo, your field dressing tools, a spotting scope and whatever else you may need on your ATV hunting adventure. Many of the ATV bags are available in camo.
  • Camo ATV Cover – Many areas don’t allow the ATVs off the trail except maybe to retrieve your game. So the ATV is parked as close as possible and the hunter pursues the hunt on foot or from a treestand. So protect your ATV and help conceal it with a camouflage ATV cover.
  • Handheld GPS Units - Most successful hunter have already scouted the area before hunting looking for animal signs and tracks. By marking their coordinates in a handheld GPS unit ensures they find find their idea hunting area when they return for hunting season.

Yamaha Outdoors Tips: Waterfowl Gear Checklist

July 2, 2012

Once the season comes, consider four Yamaha wheels to haul your gear in and out.

We’ve just weathered the first heat wave of the 2012 summer, with more to come for sure. As a result, I’ve spent plenty of time in the cool of my basement, down in the “Waterfowl Warehouse.” It’s a way I conduct an inventory for the coming duck and goose seasons. You should too. There’s still plenty of time to buy or borrow the following items before the start of resident honker seasons in September …

Decoy Bags

Slotted bags protect your investment. Floating bags allow you to set fakes with more ease. Mesh bags can be carried on your back like the others and hold a lot of decoys when budget is a factor. Most can carry your fakes, motion stakes and flags in one effort. Need some? Order them now.

Duck and Goose Calls

Some argue that a good location and realistic spread of decoys are all you need for a successful hunt. That’s sometimes true—calling waterfowl doesn’t always matter. Then again, it’s clear at times single honkers and small groups (as with ducks) can be pulled in vocally. Practice now in the off-season.

Binoculars

Other than having ducks and geese dropping down on your spread, there’s no better way to identify waterfowl species than by glassing distant birds in flight or at rest. Invest in a pair.

Haul It

Your decoys, motion stakes and flags are all stashed neatly (or not so tightly) in several decoy bags. You and several buddies could do the long walk in with that stuff on your back. We all do that. Better yet, with calls and binoculars hanging around your neck, and helmet on your head, why not haul it all out to your blind. Is it time to buy a Yamaha ATV or Side-by-Side?

For the last three essential items of waterfowl gear, go to Yamaha.com.

Ride, Fish, Scout and Hunt

May 22, 2012

Get out there and ride, man. Fishing and hunting while you do it is a bonus.

The month of May offers plenty in the outdoors. You can ride your Yamaha ATV or Side-by-Side. When enjoying your four wheels, fishing and even some late-spring and summer hunting are also options. “Life isn’t a dress rehearsal,” the saying goes. Get out there and enjoy yourself.

FISH: It’s safe to say, residents of all 50 states are enjoying fishing right now.

If you’ve got kids, it’s a great time to start them angling. Choose a bobber and bait for easy introduction. Graduate to fly fishing later if the interest continues. Panfish and stocked trout provide steady opportunity as do youth fishing events.

As backcountry rides and angling go, there’s no better time to get out there. Check rules and regulations as always for trail use, plus overnight camping and fishing laws. Be safe.

SCOUT: If you’re a hardcore hunter, scouting is a year-round deal.

It might include seeking new permission from landowners. Have your longtime hunting spots been developed? Maybe you want to plot where to hang tree stands.

Waterfowl hunters might gauge how to use their spots more wisely. Blinds will be built. Plans hatched.

As pure game watching goes, you can see how the turkey hatch has been, note duck and goose broods, and even watch deer with fawns later on, and summer bucks in velvet.

For information on what hunting offers for the month of May, please visit – http://www.yamaha-motor.com/outdoor/events/dynamicevent/2/1638/yamaha_outdoors_tips_-_ride_fish_scout_and_hunt_.aspx.
