The 2016 Honda Pioneer 1000 is simply amazing

There are those brands that are synonymous with quality. You probably have a few of them in your gun cabinet, and probably one in the driveway, too. When it comes to power sports vehicles, Honda is the oldest name in the business. After all, they did invent the ATV. With much of the market for all-terrain vehicles dominated by side-by-sides, it was only a matter of time before Honda made the leap with a vehicle they felt would make an impact and get a lot of attention.

The 2016 Can Am Defender goes on the offensive

The side-by-side market is getting pretty crowded these days, with manufacturers looking for new ways to scrape out a share. For outdoors men and women, the utility/recreation area is prime real estate. These are the machines that are designed for work first and some play. We want something that can put in food plots, haul stands and do chores around the property, and then have a good time scouting and maybe doing a little exploring during the off season. Can Am worked hard to develop a machine that fits into this area, and with the 2016 Defender, they knocked it out of the park. Continue reading

  • First Ride: Bad Boy Off Road Stampede 900, May 19, 2016

    Bad Boy Off Road, formerly known for just electric UTVs, is ready to make some noise with the all-new Stampede 900 4x4.

    Bad Boy is no stranger to the hunting community. Under the Bad Boy Buggies flag, they were known for the electric, camo-clad side-by-side vehicles made famous by my friend Michael Waddell and his partners at Bone Collector. Of course, terms such as “golf cart on steroids” have been used to describe the quiet machines, but they are much more than that. Still, the image most sportsmen have of a Bad Boy is an electric hunting vehicle – a machine that doesn’t interest those hunters who want and need a gas-powered side-by-side. Bad Boy decided it was time to make some noise. It’s a...

  • Late Season Ice Brings Big Walleyes, Mar 08, 2016

    Staying warm keeps you out and fishing. Gear, such as the Frabill I-3 Ice Suit, make the difference for long days (and nights) on the ice.

    Like many, this winter has been a bit a bit of a disappointment when it comes to fishing. With the lakes not freezing over until late in the season, and then the quality of the ice not being great, many an angler chose to stay home. So when the opportunity came up to head out to Northeastern South Dakota’s Glacial Lakes region, well, the invite was definitely too good to pass up. I was met at the Aberdeen, S.D. Airport by Casey Weismantel from HuntFishSD, the hunting and fishing part of the Aberdeen Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. This part of...
