Speaking of covers, you may want something to separate you and your machine from the sun and rain. Side-by-side roofs come soft or hard, and in camo. You can also get a cargo canopy for the bed. And seat covers aren’t a bad idea for your Rhino or four-wheeler. A bra for your Rhino or fender covers for your Grizzly will help protect the body from nicks and scratches. When not in use, a storage cover will protect your machine from the elements. You can even get camo versions to conceal your machine while hunting.
If you’re traveling in the back country, you can almost consider a winch a necessity. Today’s ATVs will take you almost anywhere but it’s that “almost” that could result in a long walk out or a night in the woods. For rating, go with a minimum 2,500 pounds for a four-wheeler and 3,000 pounds for a Rhino. A remote switch is also a good idea, especially if you’re alone.
A windshield or fairing might seem like an extravagance, until you have to ride for a while in the cold, rain or snow. There are several types to choose from. Trail lights and a spot could be helpful for post-hunt activities like field dressing and navigating your way out of the woods.
