When the Going Gets Tough

When the going gets tough, tough(and smart) hunters grab a UTV.

It didn’t take me long to discover that when getting serious about pursuing waterfowl, a trusty Labrador isn’t always a hunter’s best friend. That title quite often falls onto the shoulders—or chassis, rather—of a UTV. Don’t get me wrong: There’s nothing that can collect downed ducks like a steady retriever, but what about all the decoys, guns, gear and hunters that need to get from your truck to your honey-hole?

Polaris currently offers seven different models of their widely popular Ranger, from the light and nimble Ranger 400 to the heavy hauling Ranger 800 XP. With so many options available, there’s a model perfectly suited for every hunter, regardless of which flyway you hunt.
