Hunter on-car and bench brake lathes service rotors at the fastest possible speed without sacrificing quality. Hunter brakes lathes can also easily service a wide range of vehicle applications.
Scent Free: Since they use no fuel, bikes are pretty much scent free. I even use scent-free chain lube made by a company called Rand Innovations that also makes scent-free gun cleaner. This is important; not necessarily because you’ll be hunting right off of the bike, but wherever you stash it while hunting might at some point clue deer in to your entrance.

I bought this bike with intended use on my hunting farms. I’ve ridden it now off road several times, and to say I’m blown away, is an understatement. This bike simply blew me away on all fronts. The motor is super strong and pulls me around great. I’m 6’2 210 so I’m not a small guy either. Like others have said, if this thing doesn’t make you smile the first time you ride it, you’re just not a happy person!!!!
As I thought about this location and several others I have hunted, I began to realize that most of the properties I hunt have a network of access roads that are used by the DNR, and sometimes by farmers who have agreements to plant crops on the property. On that 1.5-mile trek, more than a mile of it could easily be ridden on a bike.
I mentioned toe clips at the beginning. Toe clips are straps designed to provide more power pedaling uphill, allowing me to push forward and lift with one foot while the other is pushing down on each stroke. The key is to remember to pull the boot backward out of the clip before putting the foot down on the ground. It won’t come out sideways, and if you try, you’ll fall. Adding big pedals with serrations allow muddy boots to grab easily. A modification to make getting in and out of the pedals easier is to leave the fabric strap that surrounds the boot off the toe clips. You gain a good portion of the power but don’t have to worry about getting the boot out of the pedal.
I have half a year riding my bike throughout trails, I have an ok bike and decided to buy a better bike,since I don’t have the money to buy them expensive bikes I bought this one I rode the bike one time through the trails first gear didn’t work. I got less tired than my other bike although I . But then I fell while on it and the derailler broke and the bike was render useless . Couldn’t get it fix 300 dollars down the drain. To me, never again.
The advantages of fat tire bikes are many. You can ride them over rough or muddy ground, even snow. They are geared for rough terrain and provide good traction and balance. They will ride right over small obstructions such as branches and rocks, obstacles that might trip up a normal mountain bike. These bikes are built to take the beating a hunter will dish out.
What I learned wringing the bike out: first thing was, the controls needed to be reversed (I’m right handed) so I could control the bike with my left hand while keeping the rifle from falling off my shoulder. Also, I push the bike from the left side and I wanted the rear brake on the left for control on downhill stretches. You wouldn’t want your load to drag you downslope to an uncertain fate ….
Bikes can be surprisingly stealthy contraptions. One day a couple of years ago, I was riding back to my truck after a morning hunt. As I got within sight of the vehicle, I saw that my hunting buddy had made it back before me. Although I wasn’t trying to be especially quiet, I was able to ride right up behind him without him even knowing I was there. He nearly jumped out of his skin when I skidded to a stop!
Hunting on a bicycle is a little different than I imagined. I have jumped elk while riding, but they ran for it before I could get off a shot. Others may be able to pull this off, or I might catch up to a really dumb elk. Deer, of course, are another matter: they are an order of magnitude less wary than elk. Anyway, the main benefit of the bicycle on the hunt is you can cover so much more ground. And you can travel those roads the forest service has closed off. If I had to guess I would say the bicycle quadruples the area you can hunt.
While the Outfitter was intended for hunters, we think it will suit anyone who wants to bring lots of gear into the woods under their own power—with some help from that Bosch eDrive. Several photographers remarked that the set-up is ideal for lugging professional camera equipment in for a shoot, says Felt Sales Manger IanMcCabe. And you can always carry beer. One hundred pounds of beer.

During an afternoon hunt, I’d followed my customary practice and stashed my bike in some brush. With just a few minutes of daylight left, I saw a coyote approaching over my right shoulder, just trotting along at first. Suddenly it crossed the path that my bike’s doe-urine-anointed tires had rolled down as I rode in. Immediately picking up the olfactory cue, it crouched low to ground and began belly-crawling towards my bike, stopping to sniff each spot of deer scent left by the rubber. It stalked right up to the brushpile, and I believe that it fully expected to see a young doe bedded there.
Getting to remote stands usually requires entering into the woods well before daylight; getting out requires long walks in the dark. Neither scenario makes for a silent passage. Striking a compromise between a quiet approach and a quick advance can be difficult — which is exactly what a mountain bike can offer.
AUGUST MID-WEEK SHORT XC SERIES AT AWABA. We are running the mid-week short series again in August. You will need lights. A short track will be set – we are targeting a 15 minute lap with 4 laps to be completed. If you get lapped by the leader before you start your last lap, then you only get to do 3 laps. There will not be any grades – everyone will be racing together and there will be a mass start. DATES: 2nd, 9th and 16th August 2017. LOCATION: Awaba TIME: Registration will start at 6:15pm and racing will start at 7:00pm. COST: Entry will be $10 per rider per race, or $20 per rider for the full 3 race series but only if you pay for all 3 races on the first night. LIGHTS: You will need a good front light, but preferably two (one on the bars and one on your helmet). If you don’t have two lights, you should carry a torch with you in case something happens to your front light. You will also need a tail light – but for the sake of the people following you, please make it a non-flashing light. You will need to sign onto a sign-on sheet and flash your licence. If you don’t have an MTBA licence you will need a day licence ($25) or sign up for a free trial membership if you haven’t had one before. Get there early if you need a day licence. Bring your race number plate with you! Feel free to email [email protected] for more information if required.

Mountain Bikes are an incredible (but underutilized) tool for hunters, and when you add some electricity to them they are even better (way, way better). Aside from Western hunting, they can pull double-duty getting deer hunters into treestands scent and sound free. Turkey hunters can forget “run-and-gun techniques” covering way more miles “pedaling and gunning.”
The meld of biking and hunting is interesting to us and perhaps timely. Ostensibly, the Cogburn bike is an alternative to an ATV. There’s a movement of a younger demographic of hunters that may find a non-motorized option appealing.
After using a bike for this upcoming season, I should have a lot better feel for how these questions will be answered. At this point, I can see all kinds of applications for them in scouting, checking game cameras, plus getting to and from a treestand. The advantage of being able to get around much more quickly could be huge.
At the other end of the spectrum, a bike can be used purposely to lay down a scent trail. Try pouring your favorite estrous-doe urine into a small pump-spray bottle and spraying it onto a small spot on a tire. Every time that tire goes around it leaves an olfactory footprint just like a hot doe’s.
I don’t think the camo finish is important and tends to hide the bike when I’m searching for it in the woods. Other guys might like that but I am not really that into it. I have been tying an orange rag to the handlebars to help me out! It does look cool though and gets plenty of comments!

Best known for their chocolate, watches and banks, the Swiss are also quite skilled bicycle makers as it turns out. If the BMC + Lamborghini collaboration wasn’t proof enough, see Stromer and new ST1 pedal-assisted electric bicycle. Now available for the first time stateside, the highly engineered electric bicycle resembles more of a city cruiser than the moped-looking bikes your delivery man rides—a design shift we’re more than pleased with. By leaning more toward a traditional frame geometry and monochrome colorway the new ST1 e-bike stands to go relatively unnoticed on the street—until it’s flying past the pack at up to 33 MPH that is.
Having been around the business of bowhunting for more than 40 years, I have seen some products, ideas and concepts come and go. A lot of them. Some of these things become important parts of bowhunting success for many archers, some find a small niche and move along with the growth of the industry, and, of course, some are relegated to the ash-heap of history. The ones that survive seem to be products that fill a need.
I bought this go-kart for my daughters about a year and a half ago or maybe it was 2-1/2 years ago who knows. It sits in our garage and has barely been used. Its a constant source of headache and I wish I could go back in time and convince myself to NOT buy this go-kart. I HATE when my kids want to use it because just as the case today, I couldn’t get the thing to start. Ifread more…

Washington’s turkey numbers are doing very well and we are fortunate to have three of the sub-species here. If you visit the WDFW website, there are published turkey maps that show the distribution and harvest reports. Armed with these data, you can begin honing in on a hunt that fits with your available time off and/or desired species. I will tell you from many years of experience that hunting public land Easterns here in Western Washington are quite challenging unless you have private ground and/or a leg up on a hot spot. These birds thrive in the thick stuff and their numbers aren’t anywhere near that of Rio Grande and Merriams levels. Still, it can be done and many hunters are successful each spring west of I-5. Hope this helps!
Before I started bowhunting, I had no idea of the joy that hunting unpressured deer brings. Only one other archer was in my hunting club, and those first few weeks before gun season started were truly wonderful.
My hunting partner and I have used our bikes for many years to hunt Washington and Oregon’s coastal mountains. Over the years we’ve used various types of bow racks, lights, and basically continue to evolve our set-ups to serve our needs best. Several years ago, my partner Stan added pannier racks to his bike in order to not only carry more gear and meat, but also as a means to reduce his hunting pack weight by stowing game bags, etc in them. http://electricbikeprices.com way he had them if he got an elk down but wasn’t carrying them around day in and day out on his back. Instead he was able to keep his pack lean with essentials only, then return to his bike for field care tools.
