This is Not Your Father's Gator: UTV Roundup

Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTVs) have come to mean a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, the UTV is a vehicle to check their fences and maintain food plots. For others, they are an all-in-one cargo, game and people-hauler for hunting trips on public land. Another dimension is emerging in the UTV world, and that is the high-performance element. Several manufacturers now have UTV-like vehicles that can be loads of fun as trail-riding rigs when hunting seasons aren't open. Hang on tight, here's a look at the new iron.

Arctic Cat
Arctic Cat's Prowler UTVs have been turning a lot of heads, and the 2008 models should be their best yet. Cat's Prowler XTX 700 H1 LE leads their lineup. An Arctic-designed 695cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder 4-stroke powers this Prowler. The company has invested millions of dollars in advanced design and assembly technologies, and this package shows it. The transmission is a rubber-belt high-low-reverse cvt with engine-braking built in. The Prowler is equipped to be a serious terrain conqueror. It is equipped with push-button four-wheel-drive and a locking front differential. The 26" tires, stunning 12.5" of ground clearance and independent double-wishbone suspension at all four-corners (with a sway bar on the back) will inspire confidence in a wide variety of conditions. Another feature that the Prowler boasts of is an 8.2 gallon fuel tank. The big Cat has a towing capacity of 1,500 Lbs. To top it all off, Arctic has some of the most advanced noise-reduction technology in the industry, and they used it to help the Prowler deliver all of this power and performance quietly. Other Prowler models in Arctic Cat's lineup include the model that started it all for them--the 650 4x4 Automatic, the 650 XT 4x4 Auto, and the 650 XT 4x4 Auto M4 in wetlands camouflage.

Bad Boy Buggies
Bad Boy Buggies has carved out a unique niche with their approach to UTVs. The Bad Boy "SUV" is not powered by a gas engine; it is propelled by two 15.4 horsepower DC electric motors that combine to provide about 31 horsepower-equivalent to a 400cc+ 4-stroke engine. The electric operation makes the Buggy exceptionally quiet and some believe that this extra-quiet drive system helps them be more successful. Another advantage of the electric drive train is that changes in elevation do not affect it. Gas powered engines on the other hand, can lose power at higher elevations due to the lower density of oxygen in the air, unless they are electronically fuel injected or the carburetor is re-jetted. Automatic four-wheel-drive is standard. Bad Boy Buggies have 22" tires front and rear, and drum brakes. They come with some useful features including a windshield and roof, storage baskets in front and on top, and an integrated battery charger. The Buggies are attractively wrapped in Mossy Oak Break-Up or Realtree...

Vehicle Preparedness

We all think about getting in shape for that up coming big game hunt but what about your truck or suv? Just how much thought goes through your mind on getting it ready for that out of the way hunt that you are heading out on? 

The first thing that I usually do is check the tires. If they need replacement think what would happen if you get 50 miles from nowhere and not one but two of them go flat or blow out on you. What are you going to do? When my tires usually get to that close part of the thread when I have any doubts I will replace them. Yes it gets a little spendly but would you rather sit out in the sticks waiting for another truck to come by? Another thing that you can do is buy yourself one of those nice little 12 volt air pumps. Yes they are small and will take forever to fill a truck tire but they work. That little pump along with a plugging kit that you can buy just might save your hunting trip. 

Then comes the cooling system of your vehicle. When was the last time that you did a flush and refill? If it was over 50,000 miles ago you might want to think about doing one and putting in some fresh antifreeze. That and checking all the hoses. Both radiator and heater hoses need to be checked.

Engine oil is is the same boat. Are you ready for a change now or are you in the middle of the mileage for a change? You don't have to change it now but make sure that it is topped off and that you have a couple of extra quarts of your preferred oil to take with you just in case. The transmission of your vehicle is the same as the engine oil. Check it and make sure that you have a couple of extra quarts of ATF to take along. You might also want to check all the fittings and hoses on the transmission just in case. You wouldn't believe the number of hunters that I have seen sitting in camp or on the side of the road with a blowed out hose or broken fitting. 

You engine electrical is something that a lot of people take for granted. M...
