“big tire tricycle |off road tricycle”

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. The bikes allow us to cover more country faster than walking, plus game retrieval is many times a downhill cruise. That first year, we were the only hunters riding bikes opening weekend. Since then, we’ve seen many others use bikes in our area, but few stay the course every day of the season. 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… The Benchmade Bugout is a useful, versatile folding knife that weighs less than two ounces. We put this ultralight folding knife to the test for this review. From the Benchmade Bugout’s excellent action to its effortless carry and cutting ability, it’s been hard to kick out of the pocket. In August we reported on the Cogburn...

“battery powered hunting vehicles -hunter scooter”

As a means of making our Defiant more versatile than ever, we equipped it with a 500 watt electric motor. This allows you to carry more with you on a long commute, adventurous tour, or hunting expedition in all conditions. The electric assist also means that your bike has become more utilitarian than ever. Single-occupant trips by car become less necessary, which will save you money in the long run all the while allowing you to burn calories you wouldn’t if you made small trips by car. To keep the bike unobtrusive in natural settings, we had all the body work film-dipped by Dynamic Finishes in ATACS camo pattern, which blends in with a variety of outdoor settings. Best of all, this pattern is subtle enough to still look good on the street. Originally developed to build on Shimano’s top level component group Dura Ace, the Di2 electronic shifting system changed the roadie game with unmatched speed, accuracy and precision. Now with its third iteration, Di2 makes its debut for internal… Due to the high number of sales of our bikes to fellow sportsman just like yourself, our bikes are in high demand. Check out our All Terrain Electric Fat Bike listing page to see what’s in stock and what’s on the way. Hopefully we’ll be able to get you out and about and enjoying one of our electric...

“electric fat bike electric 3 wheeler for hunting”

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. The Salomon S/Lab Shift MNC functions as both an alpine and tech ski binding. And it works with pin-tech boots and traditional alpine ski boots alike. Hitting the market in 2018, this ‘multi-norm compatible’ binding is like nothing you’ve seen before. It wasn’t long before I was using my bike for other hunting chores, like hanging tree stands. Of course, you’re not going to carry a ladder stand through the woods on a bike, but lock-on type stands and even some climbers are easy to strap to the rack. By using the front basket to carry a bag of screw-in tree steps, a safety harness and a haul line, and tasking the rear rack to carry the stand, hauling my entire set-up to even remote parts of my hunting property was a simple affair. QuietKat® turned to Kenda for the wheels. Known for BMX and racing tires, Kenda responded with the Juggernaut. This was their first experience with fat tires. They decided to look at their fattest off-road tires…motorcycles. Gathering inspiration from the championship winning Millville 2 tires, Juggernaut tires grip in any environment and have multiple sizes of tread height which optimizes its...

“motorized hunting scooter +hunter bike”

Another of the bike’s virtues: It’s basically devoid of petroleum aromas and other smells associated with internal-combustion vehicles: no gas, oil, coolant or transmission fluid to leave scent trails through the woods. Think of the bike’s tires as rolling rubber hunting boots: If your bike does double duty, its tires can obviously pick up scents from roads and parking lots, but if it’s a dedicated hunting tool, you’re virtually assured scent-free passages. With names like Bafang, Shimano and Panasonic, you’d think I was talking about a professional racing or stunt bike. QuietKat went to every length possible to make this Bike better than any pedal assist on the market. They wanted it to be able to stand up to whatever life could throw at it. The only way to accomplish this feat was to work with the most world-renowned bicycle part manufacturers to make the FatKat. Always carry a working tire pump!  Once I got a flat tire, and when I went to repair it, I found a broken pump. I changed tubes to ones containing “slime,” a leak-sealing agent, and installed a liner between the tire and the tube to prevent punctures. I haven’t had a leak since, but I still carry a lightweight pump, a CO2 inflator, and a patch kit. Pedaling a bike uphill, even a slight uphill, can quickly raise heart rates and make out-of-shape...

The frame and fork receive a tough Realtree Xtra® camouflage finish and the components are anodized black and bead blasted to a no-glare finish. Multiple finish options include Realtree Xtra®, Realtree Max4®, Realtree AP Blaze® or Forest green. An “unthinkable” tragedy: Two people die in tree well accidents at Oregon’s Mt. Bachelor ski area. Officials called the powder ‘fluffy’ and ‘easy to ski.’ It brought thousands to the ski resort over the weekend. But those conditions also belied a very real danger: tree wells Don’t laugh, but I was just curious if you’ve ever heard of anyone using off-road or trail bikes for hunting applications? Obviously, you couldn’t really carry loads out, but I was just wondering if you’ve ever known anyone who has used them to hunt? I like 4 wheelers, but I miss the nimble feel of a trail bike. This motorized bike might violate non motorized area hunts or land management objectives….and 16 lbs is over half the weight of my bike. Do I really want to drag another 16 lbs and possibly get a ticket and lose my animal, bike, rifle, and truck? If you want to RIDE a bike.. do it. If you want to ride an ATV ( or electric hunting bike prices bike) do that…but you are not peddling and probably watch more hunting on TV than you actually participate in. The...
