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.

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

Who hasn’t wanted to throw on a set of buckskins and wool and set out on a cross-country adventure in hopes of filling the meat cache with venison for the winter? Modern muzzleloaders share little in common with the Hawken and Kentucky long rifles of the past, beyond the basic physics of how they are loaded – from the muzzle.

    UTV beauty 6-3-16

    The old adage of “hunt smarter, not harder” rings true today. It’s in the nature of the modern hunter to view things that way.
