My main varmint mobile is a Toyota extra cab with TRD but a few months ago while visiting my youngest son in the Portland area, I spotted a scooter in front of a Honda dealership. Never had seen a Honda Ruckus so I pulled in and checked it out. Almost as bad as going in a gun shop.....next thing I knew we were loading the scooter in the back of my pickup. Shooter John asked me to post a pic about my hunting with the scooter. The ruckus ain't gonna win any beauty contests but it is a pretty high tech scooter. Powered by a 50 cc water-cooled engine, 4.3 HP, electric start, V-pullety auto tranny, top speed 37 mph, and it gets 100 mpg. Should mention that is is street legal. This scooter is perfect for puting around and doing drive-by shooting of ground squirrels, pigeons, crows, etc. I mounted a rifle rack on the handle bars which doubles as a rack to hold a handgun rest when I feel like using the TC. With various techniques, I can shoot either a rifle or handgun from the scooter very accurately. When I want to do a little calling, the scooter is easy to hide and has a super quiet exhaust so I can get fairly close to setups.Pictured is a coyote I called out of a cottonfield a couple weeks ago and killed with the TC using the .17 HMR barrel. Easy broadside shot 30 yards away......put a 20 gr. CCI game point square in the shoulder and the bullet exited behind the opposite shoulder. The coyote did the spin and bite thing a couple times and ran a few yards before collapsing dead.
It has been fun figuring out ways to carry all my junk on the little bike. The Foxpro goes on a little rack above the headlights, added a back platform to carry a soft ice chest, TC goes in an Uncle Mike's Holster bungeed to the frame in front of the seat, camera and coat go in a basket under the seat. Rifle goes on the handle bar rack. If you want to transport a critter, just throw em across the floorboard and hold em down with your feet so all the fleas can crawl up your legs. I haven't picked up any chicks with my hot new bike yet but I am optomistic.....haha!
