    Never have done it. But I recall in cameron hanes book he mentioned the benefits of a mountain bike. Seems like a solid method if you get it dialed pre-season.

    I've seen guys do it with trailers on them (looked like child carriers). I'd wear bright colors.

    Thanks for all the great ideas. I pretty much only plan on using it during bow season so the trailer would be great if I want to take my treestand in with me.

    Actually, I have thought of doing that here in Oregon where a lot of great gravel roads are gated on private timber land. What I think would make it work well would be a good bike trailer, to haul your stuff in, and to haul an animal out.
    The private timber land is the exact reason that I want to try the mountain bike. Alot of the area I used to hunt had alot of the gates open but almost all have been locked for a few years now. Oh, and don't worry Umpqua. I'll try not to get a boo boo!

    6 bulls and a buck have came out on my mtn bike and trailer. Great way to get farther than most. However I am a mountain biker with a quiver of bikes.

    Don't knock it until you try it.

    Hey Tim. Congrats on all your success. Thanks for posting the pics of the trailer. Could you tell me what brand. It is exactly what I am looking for.

    I grew up hunting the Oregon Coastal Range and during Sept alot of timber companies closed roads to motor vehicles due to fire danger. So we used to mtn bike in all the time to hunt. We also mtn biked a lot during the summer for fun as well so we had good bikes, which makes a difference. I usually involved a semi-painful 3-4 miles up into an area (typically 20-45 min ride). Gets in you farther than most hunters will hike. We pulled a bike trailer sometimes, its easier than riding with a pack on your back. I actually rigged an ATV rifle holders to my handle bars and carried my bow that way a couple times. The less backpack weight on your back the more comfortable the ride (thus the reason why we used a lightweight bike trailer sometimes) If you bike a lot year round, then mtn bike hunting is awesome. If you just pick up your bike August 30th and try riding into an area 3-4 days in a row you are gonna be hurting by day 3. I really liked that I could bike for 45mins in the morning into a spot but then can bike back down to the truck in the dark in just 15 minutes with my headlamp. * I unfortunately have never had the experience of taking elk meat out with me on my mtn bike. I am sure it is not fun but i have seen the Born and Raised Outdoors guys and another couple of guys doing it consistently so it must work pretty well.
