Hauling hunting gear

Howdy from the upper Texas Gulf Coast!:-D

I have a question for you folks that hunt..... I was wondering how many of yall, if any use your Wee as transport to the hunting/fishing grounds??

I have been looking at bikes for a while and was serious about a naked Sv until I spotted a guy here in town on a Wee and started checking em out.

Would be nice to zoom up to the deer lease or down to the beach with my gear and not burn gas in the truck @19mpg!!

My Polaris might get a little dusty unless I am filling feeders or hauling stuff out!!

I am already trying to figure out a rod holder or a gun boot......... I have em on the 4wheeler and am pretty sure I can mod one to work on the Wee.


If I can figure out how to make it haul what I need I might be free of those extra 6 cylinders

I am pretty sure you can put an atv gun boot from behind the left passenger peg to the rear fender/luggage rack. I considered it as a storage system but finally passed due to the increased attention I would probably get from the keepers of the peace.

I saw one on a Dakar the other day that was a detachable ATV scabbard. It was actually pretty sick looking......

I have plans on using my Strom this summer for scouting.

I just got my Wee. Put the ATV style holders on the bars. Put my Bow in it, and went to the range tonight. Don't know how I would get an elk home on it?
