“hunter bike fat tire bike accessories”

Recently electric fat-tire bikes have entered the realm of hunting.  The ATA show this year featured a few different national brands of these bikes being marketed specifically at the hunting community.  Sticking with my mantra of being hyper-local, I was able to get my hands on entry level Shooter-750 manufactured by a company called Huntin’ Wheelz based right here in Clare, Michigan.  This electric hunting bike’s specs equal or exceed the brands with the bigger marketing budgets but at a fraction of the cost. 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. Looking for a summer adventure? How about staying in a fire tower. – You’ll find epic views and fun times in these high up cabins. Our reporter writes, “Touring the Montana fire towers was a trip I won’t soon forget.” – Get all the details here: https://gearjunkie.com/montana-fire-tower-rental-bike-tour ☝️link in profile I waited patiently as the doe worked its way closer, and when it got to within 20 yards, I placed my top pin just behind its shoulderblade and released my arrow. The broadhead found its mark, and a few minutes later, I was giving thanks for my...

“hunt bicycle wheels electric off road”

With a range of 20+ miles, the Big Easy is positioned to put e-bikes on the map in the US where approximately 100,000 were sold in 2012. This figure lags behind sales in Europe where 1.1 million e-bikes were sold last year and in China, where approximately 27Million were sold in the same period! The Big Easy hits the fastest growing segments of the bicycle market – the electric category and fat tire category. With trends of electric car sales continuing to grow in the US as well as the use of bicycles for commuting in general, Defiant is positioned to take advantage of these macro trends with its introductory model – the Big Easy. Great purchase!! Researched bikes for months and finally dropped the hammer. The All Terrain R750 is the perfect stealthy hunting machine. Eric is easy to talk too and will set you up with the correct bike you need ! The 3G Stepper is a cross between a bicycle and a StairMaster; it rides like a bicycle but is propelled by a vertical motion with your feet on two decks on either side of the frame. You stand up while riding, and your upper body gets as good a workout… Mountain Bikes are an incredible (but underutilized) tool for hunters, and when you add some electricity to them they are even better (way, way better)....

“hunter mountain bike biker fish”

Defy convention. Defy polluters. And dramatically, definitively defy the elements with a revolutionary electric bicycle that gets you where you need to go – reliably, effortlessly and with zero emission. Come Hell or high snowfall. Combining off-road durability with an urbane sensibility, the Defiant Big Easy flies over potholes and drain grates and plows through snow and sand at speeds up to 20MPH. The motor uses no fuel, emits no pollution and costs just pennies to recharge. Cogburn understands that there are people who use a bike as human-powered access to the backcountry to hunt and fish. It will be fun to see how other hunters use this machine and what innovations will be made to upcoming editions. Recently a story about a group of a subsistence hunters in Alaska caught my eye. They were getting into the backcountry around Denali National Park by mountain bike to hunt caribou, preferring the peace and quite and lack of fuel to other modes of transportation.  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. Great purchase!! Researched bikes for months and finally dropped the hammer. The All Terrain...
