Ive thought about varmint hunting off of mine , but deer would be a bit more challenging . You could sled it out of the woods with the bike and field dress it . Avg white tail you might be able to haul all the meat home on it but you would have to have alot of storage space.

Tenderloins and backstraps on the way out from the kill, and a front & rear quarter on each meat packing trip. So, technically three trips I guess. Wasn't counting heading back to the camp to drop off excess gear as a trip.
We've got Rocky Mountain elk, smaller than Roosevelts by a long ways. Plus, haven't had to pack out a rack yet. Don't get me started on this state's game laws.

I've done a bit of motorcycle fishing, on occasion. I caught a Pisces once. She was a vegetarian, and tasted real nice, but I had to throw her back. Too much baggage....

Nope. That's just jarhead.

I've hunted off of my TW before. Even drug a whitetail out of the woods with it.

I've seen pictures of a deer on the back of a KLR, but not done it myself.

My wife's MMoto rack on her DR350 could easily hold a 200 lb deer, but I'm not sure how it would do hauling that extra weight on technical single track. The same rack on a DR650 would be an ideal setup.

A nice TC would sure be easy to transport. I really thought about getting one. Instead I ended up making my 30-06 Tikka T3 even lighter than it was (still not as light as that TC though). I chopped the barrel down to 18" and added a Leupold VXII Ultralight scope. Not as transportable as a pistol but it's a rifle... Err, carbine so I think I can probably add 150 yard or more to my personal max range vs a pistol. My measured velocity is right at 2,600 fps using a stout load of H4350 an a 180 gr Swift Scirocco II. I can shoot sub MOA and feel confident to 350 yards given a nice prone position and backpack to rest on.

Thought about using a dual sport for hunting. Figured it would make a good vehicle to get to various hiking points and walk in from there. Figured I could get a deer back to base camp easy enough or radio in a hunting buddy.

My TC is a 223 shooting 50gr VMax pellets. Pretty comfortable out to about 150-200 yds on those pesky ground squirrels. Oh and the TC fits in the pannier

My primary is a Cooper in 204 Ruger. My 39 gr Sierras are going 3700 fps and I am very comfortable out beyond 400 yds (gets flighty at about 600 yds). 600 yds is a go on Prairie Dogs and Rock Chucks and larger though.

A Tikka varmint assault carbine 30-06 eh?

All this talk of hunting off of two wheels and no mention of the venerable Rokon!?

Hunting is supposedly what they were designed for; a single track vehicle fits better between trees vs a four track, float it across streams, etc. Plus they come with some pretty radical accessories like gun scabbards and such.


Anyone here ever hunt off one? Wish I could say I have, but growing up in MN, we used a Polaris six wheeler.
