Otter and their Monster Box!

9 posts in this topic

I'm looking to fit my ATV for this upcoming ice season. I looked at the Otter HSOforum and they have some storage systems that are a bit pricey but look interesting nonetheless.

So if any of you have any info on the Otter monster box or pics of it on your ATV that would be great to see. Or if you have some pics of how you guys organize your ATV or sleds that may give me some ideas.

BTW Nice lookin site with lotsa info!!!!!!!!!

Welcome, Valleye.

For starters, here's an old thread that shows some pictures of a large Otter Monster Box. It will carry a ton of stuff.

Large Monster Box

I know several here in this Forum are running a Monster Box. I've been running a Monster Box since first off the production line and, from my experience, it'll be the last cargo box you'll need to buy.

You should email the factory and see if they have any 2nd's on the box you want.

Opps, just noticed you're in Illinois, that would be quite a drive.

Here's a picture of my ATV w/Otter Box. Sorry I don't have a closer picture.

Dave is right, it is a great utility box that'll hold all of your gear securely. I really like the ability to pack it full of ice fishing gear and not having to worry about it. This year I'm getting the Otter bucket holder add-on accessory to carry the minnow pail.

Valleye, if you click this link you can see my pics of a Otter Monster box Large on a Honda rancher AT with the auger attachment. The rancher is a 400cc so that should give you a good idea.I went with the large so I can fit my Big Buddy heater inside with all my electronics and be able to lock it when I drive to shore and go in the bar. Hope this helps, Iceman out~ Oop's I forgot the link.

Nice!!! I tell you those boxes are huge. Now I think I have an idea where Jimmy Hoffa is. LOL grin Now I just need to find a dealer close by. Otter Outdoors charge a pretty hefty shipping charge! The medium should be fine w/ the auger shield.

Thanks Fellas!

I bought the medium box at last years ice show. $199, no tax, shipped to my door from marine general. thought it was a decent deal. I've bought something from them almost every year at the ice show and they are great to deal with!! I told him I wanted the box, so he walked with me over to the otter guy and got some numbers and then gave me the deal. I bought it from marine general, but it was shipped to me directly from otter.

    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels. 
    • Day 4 Morning   I think we were both tired of trying to call birds across private fences, so we decided to try going for the distant gobbles I heard when I shot my bird.   There was actually a decent gravel road that went into this area and allowed us to have an easy walk into where I felt the birds should be.   We got in early to try to get there ahead of any other hunters, but it didn't seem to matter.   Forest roads were abundant, so walking was easy.  We went right to the spot I had a bird gobble from a few days prior, and waited.     It didn't take long for the flock to start making noise, and we only had to move a little ways to get close to them.   As usual the turkeys all came down and went away from us.  They set up shop on a long ridge and seemed content to just stay there.   We had no easy approach so set up our own position on the forest road we were on which was covered in tracks.   Other birds were gobbling in the distance the opposite way, and when one sounded close we chose to go for him.   Nothing came of that little walk other than the loss of a $65 custom call...  On the plus side we found a nice deer skull.     Back to the flock, one gobbler would respond to a crow call, so we knew they were still up on the hill.  We made a painfully slow walk straight at them since they were high enough up they hopefully wouldn't see us.  When we got to the timber they stopped responding, so we guessed they went over the top.  We worked our way up and found where they had been feeding.  Just shy of the top we set up to call just in case they were over the lip of the hill.     We received an immediate response to some lite hen yelps and clucks.  A hen with the gobbler was not at all pleased that we were there.  We got into a bit of a yelling match with her.  She was coming closer, dragging the gobbler with her.  When I heard drumming I motioned for my uncle to get the gun up since he was still calling.  In a few moments I saw a tail fan cresting the hill.  He angled left, looked around, went behind a tree.  I heard him go into strut and drum...   BANG!           
    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off.

    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
