That thing looks like a beast with tracks. Any idea how parts availability is for the Kymco? You like it?

Andy has a sweet trapping buggy!

I have a mid size Polaris ranger 500. I mounted a bunch of LED lights to roof to help check in dark is about my only modification.

I built a rack for the back of mine last year. {Gonna seal all the edges with caulk so blood doesn't drip down. Gonna paint it as well so it'll last longer.} Catch pole, axe, stake puller, etc goes on top up front. Catch goes toward the back. All my other goodies go in the bed to help keep it dry as possible. Plenty of room to pull stuff out the sides or back. When season is over just pull the dowels up out of the standard holes and your good to go.

I built a box to fit in mine. The front row (next to the cab) will hold four 5-gallon buckets - usually peat moss, drags, etc. It has an elevated shelf and has storage under it for extra tools, winch, etc.

The middle is narrow and usually has stakes, drags, chains, dirt hole drill, big hammer, etc.

The back (next to the tailgate) will hold four 5-gallon buckets (set bucket, lure/bait bucket, peat, etc.)

Once traps are set I'm usually down to just a few buckets with some straw in the other holes for non bloody critters like cats and fox.

Mine is a crew cab so on set day I have two kitchen trash cans in the back floor board with traps. A tub goes in the back seat for extra items on set day but has straw in it on check days for the bloody critters.

The picture above was on trap pulling day so there were no buckets.

Thanks Andy might have to put my skinning gambrel on mine. I have a few ideas now I need to get busy. Season will be here before you know it.

Dr. Fur, it's a must have after you use it a bit.

Plus you can adjust it to keep stuff tight in the back or let it all the way out on a good day on the line where you need more room = flexibility

If you want to use the good tires, take it from the guys in south Texas and use what we use...
Essex Kevlar
$600 - $800 per set but I wouldn't leave the house without them.

Ive got the tire thing figured out already. Kawasaki mule makes a a arm kit that lifts machine and you can put on a 15 truck tire. Friend of mine has done this and it works great.

I'd think theyd have a winch on the front of them.
Then I'd mount vice grips to the front bumper somehow.
Then I'd have a pulley rigged on my cable.
Then... you could pull up to whatever, hook your pulley to it, and have a horizontal skinner with the critter latched in the vice grips.

Andy, you're an animal! I run 8 plys with the slime as well, I just can't remember the name brand. Only issue I ever had was a cedar stob, got lucky it was in the offseason and able to be patched. Locust don't stand a chance vs the 8 ply slimed tires I run smile

Cactus is my main reason for slime. One time I bent a rim and seen the slime running down my side wall. I took out my hammer and beat the rim back into place and when the slime quit oozing out I knew I had it fixed. Kept me from walking a long ways out of the mountains.
