Can it double as a shooting stand if you stand up on the seat also?? Great Idea.
Pretty slick. I hope it holds up for you.

John - I thought about a steel frame but the center of gravity is bad enough on a quad so I wanted to keep the weight down. Probably going to go with a sun resistant vinyl top that snaps on.....got a friend in the upholestry business that I bet can help me out. I am also entertaining the idea of a small lexan windshield that can go on the center post quick with a couple thumb nuts........it would have to fit somewhere out of the way when not in use. Hate the dang gnats in my eyes, mouth, and nose when coming in after dark. I could probably mount it to the top of the gear box for storage.
Hey Bill that's a good idea. Nothing worse than the sun beating down on you. If you deside the plastic isn't durable enough let me know and I can help you put one together out of steel tubing. Then you could climb up on top and shoot!

I looked at the enclosures but I wanted something wide open so I could easily and quickly shoot in almost any direction. Also, they want way too much money for enclosures.......so far I only have $37 in this setup.
Just curious as to why you didn't just buy an enclosure from cabelas?
I wonder if Ray would be inclined to make a top for me if I let him shoot a squirrel off my Recon....haha!Nope, never have seen your CJ.......can you post a pic?
Bill Lookin good Don't show or leave that quad with Henson or you'll he will have it ghillied up and you'll never find it again. Looks like you're getting her dialed in. Have I ever showed you my CJ? dale

Here's a picture of Dale's SAV (squirrel assault vehicle) with the top on.Here's one with the top down. He likes the top up to keep from getting sunburned.

Looks like a rodent patrol in Ft. Bidwell. Bill, I would top your cage with something solid to help stiffen the entire assembly.
