I've thought about doing this. John Eberhart's son Jon uses a bike to get in deep on public land and I've been thinking it over this past season.
My walk's only about a mile but there are a few other places I want to check out this Jan/Feb for nest year then I'll definitely be looking into biking in.
I'd like to see some bikes as well if anyone's doing this.

Great thread, you're gettin "repped" for this one Smile ! I used to do this, when I first started bowhunting public land. Then, as seen in my recent video, I started carrying everything & the kitchen sink!

Well guess what, I have a brand new setup now, for all my future hunts. I have found, FINALLY, my perfect bowhunting gear setup. I will share it with everyone this weekend. It will once again allow me to use my mtn bike, to get crazy deep where few dare go! I'll be able to use it for turkey hunting this Spring, & can't wait!

Here's links I found on this subject.

I use a bike in the early season when it's dry. Later in the year well mud + hills doesn't make for good biking. The only mod I've done to the bike is add gun holders for my bow.

I've read an article in the past on this subject. The author claimed that after he shot a deer he would put the head on the handlebars and place the body cavity of the deer on the seat, then ride on the back of the deer to leave the woods. Seems like a guy would like to train in the summer before trying that out. I train/ workout in the off season but when it comes time to drag deer out, still is hard.
