Hunting

Recommended Posts

That's generally illegal, at least in every state I frequent. Many won't even let you have a firearm if you're on a quad or dirt bike, CCW or not.

I'm tempted to use it to get out there because bikes can cover crappy terrain so quickly. 

but this doesn't help you if its illegal where you are.

it is only illegal to shoot from one or shoot from the road....

it is no different then any ATV or truck... you get to where you need to go, you get off, then you hunt.

i think you're right! There is no reason he couldn't use the bike to get were he needs to go. Just so long as he actually doesnt shoot off the bike.

My local trails (ride from the garage during the week) are a popular hunting area in Sep/Oct.  They don't seem too thrilled with my 300 buzzing around, even though it's orange.

I'd love to use a bike for hunting. I need a plated bike however. Really your only using it for scouting and exploring logging roads easier than in a truck. Anybody who hunts , especially bow hunts knows you still have to understand stealth and patience to be successful but talk about a better and funner way to get to that point of taking off on foot. I have an old buddy who uses his plated yami for fishing adventures to more remote areas. Both sound like an awesome way to combine a couple different sports I love.

In WA the rules are the same for motorcycles/quads as they are for cars/trucks. No loaded long guns in/on the vehicle, no shooting from the vehicle, no shooting from/across any state highway. I've hunted grouse on an XR100. Way fun and you can cover lots more ground.

I would be scared about discharging a firearm from my bike.  I can barely touch the ground at the best of times....the 7mm would put both me and the bike on our arses :)

I always carry. Riding showering doesn't matter. My piece doesn't leave my side. Mp 40 sub. And about 3 more hidden around

I hope he was pulling your leg. That's a heck of an irresponsible way to hunt deer. Talk about low chance of a clean kill lol but I could see that being a lot of fun for varmints... Or wild horses or feral pigs or bad humans or signs...lol

There's a guy with a very loud yz250f that doesn't seem to care about us archery hunters!

Dad has a wildcat sxs. We hunt from that when we are together but when I go alone while he is off with mom somewhere I have used my buddy's xr650. Bow on my backpack. Cruise along and road hunt til i get to wherever I'm going to set up for the norning/evening. It's not to bad but if the buck of your dreams bounces out 60 yards from the road there is no way I'll get my bow off my pack, bike on its kickstand, arrow knocked, shot made before he bounces away. I recently got a 2012 yz 250f and am currently building a removable rack for the bars I can put my bow in like i used to do on my quad. Where we hunt it's not technical riding, it's 3rd gear putting checking out the scenery looking for furry little woodland creatures. I have been passed by a ford escort where I park to walk into my stands... super technical stuff I would be worried about falling and destroying a very very expensive hoyt spyder 30. On my back pack or handlebar mounted rack I think it would end badly. I'm still gonna try it though. Good hunting!
