The last thing I want is to get stranded because I was to tight to spend $100 for chains for the truck or $60 for the ATV. If not needed I can spend the extra money for other toys, like bullets, powder and other fun stuff.
I'd consider a good set of chains as essential as a spare tire. You may not need them, but if you do , you'll be SOL without them. Good way to ruin a hunt. Trust me. Been there, done that.
I had a new ATV with 7 miles on it. Got it stuck (lost the front retaining clip for the 4wd) and went in with my truck to retreive the quad. By the end of the evening I had the truck in the ditch and the ATV stuck in the road
Thankfully it got cold enough that the gumbo mud set up by morning.
