whats ur poison

what do you drive as your hunting vehicle now and what if anything do you wish you had instead. if you are content what are the big +'s

Right now I am using an7 pass van that has also been doubling as a boyscout transportation vehicle. problem is it is litteraly one wheel drive. No slip posi whatsoever and it gets stuck in my spit if I dont get any velosity on it.

Been looking at f250 4x4 in 2008 then in 2009 then in 2010 and probably again for 2011.

Dodge Ram 4X4 hemi equipped gets me to my hunting locations but a fuel injected 650 - 4X4 Bombardier outlander gets me in and out of the woods....

I'm not much into fancy rigs. My go-anywhere, do-anything hunting truck is a 1994 Toyota pickup with a cap. That old 4 cylinder is never going to die! Over the years it has taken me any place I wanted to hunt and back, and in all kinds of nasty Montana weather. I've slept in it and hauled all my camping gear in it, and even filled it with antelope, deer and elk. It ain't much to look at, and doesn't have much power - it just get's the job done. My horse trailer towing truck - and sometimes hunting truck - is a 1995 Ram 2500. And that's it, folks.

I drive a 2008 Ford F250 supercab. Not the crew cab. Diesel with an 8' bed. Love the truck. Plenty of room for all my gear in the back seat. The only thing I want different is 4 wheel drive. Never...I repeat never... buy a diesel that is not 4 wheel drive. I've been stuck 6 times since I bought it. The front end is extremely heavy. For hunting, I'm over trucked. I bought it for a shop truck, I need the towing capacity and the power.

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

i had an 89 wish i had it back. those 22re motors will run forever. they'll way out last the bodies. come to think of it the guy that had mine before me brought the truck here from mt.
