Utilizing a UTV for hunting purposes can take hunting to a whole new level. You can now reach locations that would have otherwise taken you hours to reach and get deep into the wild where the big game thrives. Accessorizing the UTV will help you keep your gear safe, get closer to the game and load up for entire days of hunting adventures. Here, you will learn a little about some accessories for you to consider installing on your UTV.
Hearing the roar of your UTV engine is great for the race track, but when you are trying to creep through the wild during a hunt, it isn't exactly ideal. Look into installing an exhaust silencer. This will not make your machine completely silent, but it will reduce the range of the sound drastically. If you are concerned about losing power with this modification, don't worry. You will still maintain all of the power you have currently; you'll simply be missing the loud roar of the engine.
Note: Some exhaust systems will need to be modified permanently by welding an adapter onto the existing pipes.
Gun and Bow Racks
Having a secure place to mount your guns and bows while you are on the move is crucial. You don't want your guns and bows bouncing around during the trip putting them and yourself at risk.
You have quite a few options to consider. You can find enclosed cargo boxes for the back of your UTV, hood-mounted racks or center-hump mounted racks.
The center-hump mounted racks make it easy for you to quickly grab your gun and shoot the game that you come up on while you are moving. They also keep the gun where you can easily see it and will keep the gun clean while going through mud bogs.
Cargo boxes will keep the guns and bows safe and clean but can also be used to transport ammunition, dry clothes, food and anything else you might need. The downside is that the guns aren't easy to get to when you need them in a hurry.
Hood-mounted racks are great, but they will expose your guns and bows to a lot of dirt and debris.
