The Ranger is the only way to go much safer than a quad and can haul a lot more stuff. I've had mine for over a year and I am more impressed w/ it everytime I use it. I test drove every other side by side on the market and the Ranger is the safest and the best suited for what I was looking for. Damn I am starting to sound like a commercial lol.JR

I have the 4x4 in camo mine is an 06. My old man has one there in Oxnard that is the Browning edition, if you wanna take a look at it send me a pm and I'll set it up. The best place to buy them is through a dealer I use in NM. A little bit of a drive but the price makes it well worth it, especially on the Limited Editions. In Ca the dealers out there usually charge over MSRP.JR

Thanks for the offer, but I am not going to buy anything until the wife retires from the military so I don't have to keep dragging it across the country with me.

Yah, yah, I know its loud but,The color of your vehicle doesnt have anything to do with calling. Where you put your vehicle and how you approach your stand does sometimes. I have had coyotes go past my vehicle to get to my calls. If I thought my loud colored quad was a problem I would change it. When you are driving they know your there anyway.Did you guys camo your vehicles? Do you kill enough coyotes to notice if it helped?? :P

Ford is notorious for that. I have an 01 F-350 that seems to be holding up though. Wife had a white 95 Mercury Mistake, uh, Mystique thats paint fell off like peeling, sunburned skin off an albino.Sorry if I offended any albino's out there..... Ron

Use a 06 Polaris Sportsman all camo. But when the going gets really ruff I use the baby below. :signlol2iu: This is Suzuki but I dont think it qualifies as a atv. I love this baby because it has a heater in it and that comes in real handy on those cold Colorado mornings. Not as easy to hunt out of, but with the air lockers front and rear and the gear reduction it will go just about anywhere you have the gonads to take it.Attached File  1.jpg   13.38KB   22 downloads

My son has several suzuki's.. I think he has 3 or 4 for parts, and 1 they have put together and running. He runs that thing all over this place.. He is 13 LOL.. We use Polaris and Fords for hunting... Heres the white ford that we used to have.. (Ford bought this one back) Anyhow we used to haul our quads like this.. in the trailer, underneath the quads, we hauled fuel and ice chests etc.. And the tent.. It is a big outfitters tent.. Attached File  100_1181.JPG   24.98KB   113 downloadsThen we got more toys....Attached File  ourquads2.jpg   32.67KB   112 downloadsSo now we haul them in this.. Attached File  trailer.jpg   65.77KB   106 downloads And also on a JumpingJack tent trailer. So much for the days of grabbing a sack of taters, dozen eggs and your rifle and fishing pole.. Now its turned into having to have a rolling garage full of quads, and the kitchen sink too. Heck its all the comforts of home and then some LOL.. I will admit.. AS Ive gotten older doing the outfitter tent thing really is loosing its appeal..Where we used to stay in the tent and stay warm with a wood stove.. now I like my soft bed and flick the switch to turn the heater on LOL... Now we are using the outfitter tent as a grage for our quads LOL...
