Seen many advertisements around the $4-5K range for the "newer" ones.

I agree they do look like they can be a great vehicle for deer hunting.

I've been looking at them for pulling the ice shack around. About the same size as a side by side wheeler, but with a full cab and heat.

One of my friends has one and likes it. He did say that if you need parts you won't find any. He has been waiting for a year to get a tie rod from the manufacturer.

My dad bought a suzuki this fall for on the farm. I would suggest to get the fuel injected 660cc engine other than the carburated engine. Big power differance it will spin the tires on gravel in 3 gears. We put Carlisle All Trail 23x10.5x12 with a 3 inch lift which really helped with bottoming out on rough trails. Gas mileage is any wheres 35-45 mpg.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
