Speed it went lots of places but it never when even close to how far these bigger atv will go. Not saying I don't believe anyone. Just saying the people that you went around must have been pretty green to riding.

NO MINE IS BIGGER! not arguing just putting my personal experience out there... little off track from what the OP ask now anyway

Re: ATV What do you recomend and why

ATVs come in many different sizes and shapes and to make a proper choice you need to consider many factors that influence a good knowledgeable selection. I think that ATVs are fun to use are economical to operate and easy to transport but not something that I choose to hunt with.

I like bigger rigs and a lot of tire, here is my wife's buggy, she built it and does most of the driving. It will take on water crossings that tumble ATVs and just keep going and can be built for less than many side by sides if you do your own work.

Front view. Like I said before I ran 2" offset wheels. With 27x12x12 on the rear and 27x10x12 on the front. Ran them about 2lbs in the snow.
