Polaris Ranger 500 sxs with dump box. Great for hauling chainsaw, guns etc. I put one of those rubber atv gun mounts on the dash and the butt of the rifle sits on the floor, works great. The fold down windshield works well. Made an aluminum roof with 1/8" plate and a rear window of Lexan I cut and then used self tapping screws.  Goes 45mph!

dealer told me if the seat belt is not hooked up they will not go full speed. Can you post a pic of your gun rack on it? The U rubber mount I used was attached to the dash for quick access. The split folding windshield can be used to steady a rifle with the top half folded down.

25mph is plenty fast off road!

Those racks look like they give you quick access to your rifles.

I've gone to a .17 HMR from a .22, no need to adjust  elevation for longer ranges and it shoots minute of squirrel.

I hunt deer, moose, turkey, geese. Virtually no grouse since fishers cleaned them out so a friend and trapper gets those.

I Hunt Deer,Dove, Squirrel, Fox, Coyote. Killed a 7 point buck last year. My first kill, gut shot em a little bit tho :(

I do get quick access the only thing i don't like is when is carry my shotgun in the case (fabric) i have to strap it in w/ a bungee cord cause the hooks don't hold it good....

 i Put them red reflectors  on the Mule for added safety. You never know. I also put a Bicycle headlight where the mirror used to go, ( dang tree limbs)!  I used gorilla glue to attach it. BUT i want to put it on a swivel so i can move it around during the night while im driving. Oh, what CC is your engine?

Great you got a good deer. Gut shot or not you got him and he didn't die hidden away. I find a deer stand the best, and a bag of cracked corn.

I'd like to get some coyote but they are very wary here, only hear them well after dark howling. Only one evening they came out before dark, got two with a .223 Winchester Model 70.

My Polaris has a 500cc engine, a single cylinder and liquid cooled.  My older Sportworks became difficult to find parts and can't get a front gas shock for the strut. I'll have to match one up, they most all have a 1 1/2" tube diameter but any shop here won't try to match them. Seems a 7 year old is obsolete in the world of Chinese made utv's. I'm told it's Chinese and only assembled in the US. Soon as I find a shock i'm selling it to help pay for the Polaris. It's tough as nails but so is the ride comfort.

I'm looking to make mud shields for the Polaris, the UHMW plastic is far too expensive.  I was told rink board (stops pucks) could work but comes in white color.

I'm sure 50 gal plastic drums can work if you can flatten out the plastic. Could also be used for skid plates under a UTV. Too bad no one sells templates for skid plates, don't want to flip mine over to measure.

My brother had been putting out bags of whole corn in a feeder. got him around 5:00 5:30. PM
