I rode a couple of trails off the Nabesna rd a few years ago while sheep hunting with my wife. Some pretty country back there, lots of sheep but not much in the way of legal rams. We had to get a permit to ride our wheelers from the PS and this was after we had driven nearly to the end of the Nabesna rd becuase we didn't know about the need for a permit until it was too late.


That's ok, I'll ass shoot a dink.

That's what I get for being gone so long.

Things change. PS has always been difficult. I think they intentionally recruit anti-hunters and ship them to AK.

Nebesna has always been one of my favorite areas. Yeah, not many moose, but it used to produce some BIG rams. Hopefully that will come back.

I'll definitley be going back down there again to ride but will probably skip the hunting. Like I said, beautiful country down that way.

I just thought this might be a good place to ask.... My son has a Yamaha Grizzly 80 that I bought him when he was 7. He's 12 now and although his skills have progressed to the point that he can get that little thing into some amazing places, I think he's ready to move up to something bigger and a 4X4. He's a bit on the small size for his age though, so light weight is a plus. I'll be buying used, so reliability is also a must. Any recommendations from ya'll?

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!)


I ride mules, hunt every chance I can, and even take my husband with me!

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.
