Seems like a Honda Recon - though they are only 2X4 might be the way to go.

4X4 is a must, some of the places I take him on hunting trips just aren't passable without it. I typically use 2WD on my Grizzly, but it's big enough with huge tires to get through. His is going to be small enough that he'll need the 4X4 to make up for lack of ground clearance.

My ride is a Camo 2011 CanAm Outlander 800 with XMR intake, Crutchfield shocks and Ricochet skid plates. It is my second Outlander. It's a spectacular machine.

We have some Honda's and I have a Polaris 6 wheeler with a dump bed, that is handy some especially on the ranch, hunting we ride mules (the ones with 4 hooves!)

Hawken,

That looks about like what my grizzly is going to get used for in a couple of weeks. My wife and kids have been out of Alaska visiting family for a while since I'm deployed, and while they've been gone the snowfall back home has been breaking records. We're about 50" over normal right now. I'm glad I left the plow on the grizzly - my wife is gonna neede it when she gets home! grin

The only sensible kind of snowplow IMO. After some 25,000 miles, this one has pretty much been hung up...

I have a '00 Yamaha Big Bear 400 4x4. I have a 60" Moose Plow on it. It's awesome. I like auto clutch, manual shift ATV's. That's what I've always had, with the exception of my '92 Honda 250X, should of bought a Yamaha 350 Warrior instead. I don't mind the full time 4x4.

My wife has a '02 Suzuki Ozark 250. It's more sporty and faster on trails and such.

We also have a '01 Suzuki Quadsport 80 and '02 Suzuki Quadmaster 50 for the kids. Probably going to sell the 50 soon.

My first ATV was a '86 Honda 200SX. We rode the crap out of that fourwheeler. I wish I still had it.

94 Kawasaki Bayou 300. Try to pay as little as I can for toys like this. Picked it up for $900 and included winch and snow blade. Doesn't even have 2000 miles on it yet. Doesn't have some of the trick stuff the new ones do, but make it work.

Great pictures! I ride a 08 polaris 500 sportsman.
I like it but want to get another. maybe some of you could help with what I'm looking for. My brother has all sports quads and it seems they are a completly different machine. In sand his do great where mine suck. Is there a utility quad 4x4 that has the rear wheel spin like the sport quad? Maybe i need the manual and chain drive I don't know.

2011 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO. I've added a 2500 lb winch and a rear rack extender since this picture was taken. It did a fine job of hauling in this years buck.

Hey - nothing wrong with that! Actually, I have a question for you. My son has out-grown his Grizzly 80 and I'd like to get him a 4X4 so it's easier for him to stay with me on the hunting trails. I want it to be fairly light-weight though, since he's small for his age. (12) What are your thoughts on the Bayou? Too heavy? He is a very skilled rider - I just want to make sure when he gets in those situations where a little rocking/body english is needed to maintain movement he'll be able to handle it.

We have a 98 bayou on the farm. The thing handles like a cinder block. Its got quite a bit of power but is not fun to ride. The suspenison isnt desgined for crusing a trail and its pretty slow. Its a well built machine but the quad was designed for pure utility. When i was about 13 i bought a honda rancher. Its the perfect fit. It can handle the work but itself sporty enough to have fun on too.

I have a 2006 Honda Rincon 660, three speed auto transmission with electric shift option, fully independent suspension. Very happy with it plan on using it for many years to come.
