Gun mounts for ice auger holder?

9 posts in this topic

I cant seem to find an ice auger holder for the front rack on my ATV. I have found gun mounts for ATV's, will they work OK for ice augers? Thanks for any replies.

Yep, I believe I used the Mad Dog brand mounts. These aren't specific to guns and are just a general purpose yoke-style mount. Guns, shovels, etc. I mounted three on the front rack to hold my Jiffy. They work great.

Mad Dog makes a mount system specifically for ice augers...a great system.

Many guys are just as happy with the gun mount or universal Mad Dog mounts...depending on the application.

They also work well inside a clam shack to secure a auger in transit and can be mounted on the cross seat bar.

Cabelas carries the mad dog ones, they are either in the atv section or the ice fishing as they were in both about 2 weeks ago, we have these on both of our machines.

Thanks for all the input! I just got back from SW and decided to get the Mad Dog ATV ice auger mount. It looks to be alot more secure than the gun mounts. (mounts on three points instead of two)

Good choice on the Mad Dog auger mount. I bought the gun mounts first and had a hard time keeping the auger head in place. Now the auger mount is flawless. Auger head stays stills even in rough conditions.

I've had good luck with the universal mounts. I strap a bungee over the auger gear case just for good measure, but other than that I leave the auger on the rack when the ATV is pulled down the road on the trailer. It took a few adjustments to get the three mounts where they need to be to hold the Jiffy and it's curved handle, but it sits solid now.

I'm not sure what the auger mount costs but it may be cheaper than buying two sets of two universal mounts which I had to do (need three to hold the auger) as I didn't find the auger mounts when I was making the purchase.

Just purchased a Ryan. Solid, rubber coated with several tie down points on base. Will last a lifetime, did not think same of others I saw.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
