Quad bike set up?

Print Post  
Unfortunately I have totally wrecked my knee, which means Im not going to be running up and down hills any more.
On the bright side Ive got a quad so I can still get out there. Just wondering how people have set their quads up for hunting? Looking for ideas on what to add, modifications to do etc. Pics would be great!
Also, if anyone could point me in the right direction for places that quads can go in the North Island, Id be most grateful!

Brians talking about damping down the noise which is handy to not alerting game to your presence from a long ways off. While on that aspect of the topic, if you hunting a specific target animal dont be taking pot shots at other small game while driving around.

Something like this on the front is cheap nd nasty but very effective. Fish box on the front hinged, provides storage, and a great rest. Rifle on the right and shotgun on the left. On the back another basket which a fallow deer will fit into easily and carrying other gear.



not hunting, but you get the idea. It possible to weld on a frame and pulley so a deer can can be gutted right there and then back of bike and swung into basket.

She rolled it five times and survived. 4 lives left.. Roll Eyes

The high baskets saved me a couple of times. Woke up in a culvert once with the bike upside down above me and the motor running, hanging on the sides of the dry creek only by the fore and aft constructions..So they are a safety feature.   Was shooting a 20 g shottie one handed and driving down a track with longish grass on either side, one wheel on the track and one wheel in the grass. flipped full over in an instant when drove off the edge of culvert.

Lesson learned its to do one thing at a time when the terrain in front of bike is not fully and clearly visible..
