Whats your hunting vehicles

Since I'm in the process of fixing my hunting/beater vehicle, I broke it scouting/dove hunting, i was just curious what everyone else uses. Mine is this slightly modded jeep liberty.

2007 Chevy Avalanche.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

A 2004 Hyundai Accent. Odd hunting vehicle you say? I hunt and trap every day in the fall and winter, and rack up a bunch of mile. That car gets 32 mpg, only hold 3 quarts of oil, and tires are cheap. ( I just had 4 new 185-80-14 delivered to my door, $132 for four. I’d pay $250 for a single tire for my truck). I have ATVs to use once I get to my trapping and hunting areas. If the roads get too nasty, I will drive my 2012 Chevy 2500. But it has to be pretty bad, as that car runs like a raped ape in the snow.

I put a couple big tarps in the hatch compartment to hold back the blood and hair.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

Bigbrownie, I got you beat, well my buddy does. He purchased a vw beetle in the summer. Fast forward 1st day rifle season he pulls in parks beside the barn as my son & I were sitting in my truck. Him and his 2 boys gets out of the car. His 2 boys at 6' tall built like body builders like there Dad. We stood there in aww watching this taking place as they got out and pulling out there hunting pants, jackets, back packs from the trunk. I asked him, where you gonna put the deer if any of you get 1? Back seat with 1 of his boy's LOL. The deer would have to be laying on his lap or sit on the deer if thats the case. I thought i seen everything.



We were just talking about he not going to show up in the bug with his boys. Even though when he brought it to my place to show me what he bought in the summer. I did ask him what you going to drive coming deer season, this? Yup he replied. No way i said. Cheap on gas, tires cheap etc. etc. he went on. Yeah i knew for years he was tight with his $, but never thought he go that route.

The older I get, I find that to be a complimentary term..."old guy"

Mine is a 2014 4 door F-150. 4WD with the 5.0 V8 and a trifold cover on the bed. Slept in the back seat a few times. Not too bad. Gets the job done for me.

I had to run a trapline inside the Accent last winter. I carry an 8 pack of Lance wheat and cheddar crackers in the car for snacks when Iím trapping or hunting. One day while warming up on the trapline I noticed one of the pack was open, and there were crackers on the floor. When I turned on the heater, cracker crumbs started flying out the floor vent. I was parking the car in overgrown fields and mice must have found their way in. I caught 3 over the next 2 days.

I hammered a deer on I-80 with it last month. Was passing in the left lane when a big doe came over the guard rail. When it hit, it flew over the hood and roof and into a tractor trailer that was following me. It bucked the hood up, pushed the fender into the wheel, took out the ac radiator and left headlight assembly. I pulled over at the Renoldsville exit, hooked a come a long up to a guard rail post and pulled the fender away from the wheel. When I got home I took the hood off, jumped on the crease and straightened out the fender a little more. I had to buy a new light assembly. It was kind warm with no ac last month, went old school with the windows down.

My kids and wife make fun of me for driving this car. I said it has itís benefits....no one will park anywhere near you and everyone stays clear of you on the road. Just topped 100,000 miles last week. Gonna buy a new Subaru this spring, but Iíll sure miss my old beater.
