ATV or UTV

I'm looking at getting an ATV or UTV and looking for some opinions. It will be used on approx. 70 acre farm to help transport deer back to the shed, run trap line, haul chainsaw, etc to location of cutting, would like to put a plow on it to plow the driveway. What have you guys used and liked and been worth the money? I don't wanna spend crazy money but would like something will last for years when maintained.

You can't bag a big one if your not out tryin

Kawasaki Mule 610. I have that and a Honda Forman. For what you described the UTV all the way. The bed beats strapping stuff to the rack. For foodplot work and access to remote areas the ATV is beat.

Re: ATV or UTV

I've had a Polaris Ranger for 10 years...2005 500 cc. 4wd

I don't beat it up and it has served me fine. Mostly used for chainsaw/equip hauling. I did put a windshield on it, other than that nothing fancy.

UTV all the way. We got a polaris ranger full size 2 years and dont know how we did it with out one. Easy to haul stands/sticks, deer, gear, and people. I would never go back to just an atv. I do have one though.

Re: ATV or UTV

I have a Deere 550. Very basic. Bought it 3 years ago and wish I had done it much sooner. I'm also north of 50 so I didn't buy it for play although an occasional evening ride is very relaxing.

I miss my hunting partner
