“tricycle with big tires +electric hunting bicycle”

At the other end of the spectrum, a bike can be used purposely to lay down a scent trail. Try pouring your favorite https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_bicycle urine into a small pump-spray bottle and spraying it onto a small spot on a tire. Every time that tire goes around it leaves an olfactory footprint just like a hot doe’s. The scabbard is built as a transport for guns and bows and not for quick removal and hunting while under way. The actual rubber mounts for the guns are geared toward sleek weapons and not a short stubby shotgun and I have had to improvise the upper attachment. Having been around the business of bowhunting for more than 40 years, I have seen some products, ideas and concepts come and go. A lot of them. Some of these things become important parts of bowhunting success for many archers, some find a small niche and move along with the growth of the industry, and, of course, some are relegated to the ash-heap of history.  The ones that survive seem to be products that fill a need. I bought an electric bike mainly for hunting purposes earlier this year. Due to the motor size of 750 watts, it is not considered a motorized vehicle like a motorcycle where I live in the Rocky Mountains. No idea what the regs are in other states. It is...

“fat tire bike accessories fat bike gun rack”

Anyone toying with the idea of getting an e-bike need not look further than the Super 73 from California’s Lithium Cycles, already fully funded on Kickstarter. We took the electric bicycle out on the streets of NYC to test the brand’s product claims… Jim had one of his bikes at the Interlake Outdoor Expo last year as a demo and it included a killer matching BOB trailer, beefy enough to haul a weeks worth of gear. Unfortunately, the price tag is one that will make you want to sit back down.At $5,499, that only gets you the bike. I can imagine that you’d probably tack on quite a few more pesos if you want the racks and the cool green headlight.  I suggest you check with the US Forest Service directly in there Dickinson/Bismarck offices to get it straight from their mouth, and with NDG&F for state managed lands. Although they are considered a “bicycle”, I bet that is regarding motor vehicle registration purposes. They would still be illegal on paved trails made for non-motorized vehicles (I was just at a meeting this morning and the Federal Highway Administration rep clarified that one…”motorized” wheelchairs are allowed on non-motorized trails for people that need mobility assistance under new US Dept of Justice rulings)… I have been using it primarily for scouting and setting stands right now. Also used it for early...

“electric mountain bike +three wheeled hunting scooter”

All told, I carried out three elk on a fat bike this year. Those were the most challenging—and meaningful—miles I pedaled in 2015, made all the better with the innovative gear. Here’s a list of what I used. Even during spot-and-stalk hunting, where you’re mostly on the move, there’s a fair bit of sitting, waiting, and watching, which can get cold. So I always carried this massive down parka. Though it’s nearly as big as a sleeping bag and has a hood that fits over a bike helmet, the Lesja stuffs down small enough to fit in the pack. The outer is constructed of a proprietary two-layer fabric that’s wind- and waterproof yet soft and quiet—not crinkly or noisy like most shell fabrics. And the arm gaiters are a nice touch for keeping out the cold. As a result, nowadays, FAT bikes are so much more than snow bikes. From winter riding, to desert sand dune sessions, to long-distance adventure touring, not to mention plain old-fashioned trail riding on your favorite patch of single-track, FAT bikes are showing up everywhere. FAT bikes are currently the fastest growing segment in the bicycling industry. Companies can’t make enough of them to keep in stock. That’s why we’re so excited about this opportunity. We wanted our first bike to make a splash, and what better way to do it than with the introduction of a Made in...

“motorized hunting scooter -fat tire electric bike for sale”

From my perch 18 feet up in a sweetgum tree, I couldn’t even see my hunting vehicle, which was barely 40 yards away. I’d stashed the camouflaged bicycle in a brushpile, and it was hidden so well that I was beginning to worry that I might never find it again. The Canadian government announced national parks will now be free for people 18 years old and younger. The move is part of Canada’s 2018 federal budget, and follows the success of 2017’s free parks project. There’s nothing quite like the excitement of riding a bike hunting. It’s faster than walking, faster than a horse on flat or downhill grades, and you don’t have to feed it or take care of it between hunting seasons. You get there quietly. You can take more with you. You can use it as a game carrier. And you get some really good exercise. And it’s good fun. As a result, nowadays, FAT bikes are so much more than snow bikes. From winter riding, to desert sand dune sessions, to long-distance adventure touring, not to mention plain old-fashioned trail riding on your favorite patch of single-track, FAT bikes are showing up everywhere.
