For me, load the ATV in the truck and hit the road.

I use a side by side for my trapping. I made a plywood box that has drawers for baits and lures. Another drawer for all the tools, cutouts for 5 gallon buckets of waxed sand and trays on top for traps. Winches on front and back, carrier on front for critters and made a folding anchor to winch myself out if stuck. Most of my landowners won't allow pickups in their pastures.

I trailer my side by side to location, unload and roll. Way better for land trapping in the country I trap than a four wheeler.

I use a Polaris sportsman 570 on the farms around my house land trapping. Not so much for my water trapping most of that is pull up spots and trekking through with waders or boots

20 yr old Suzuki King Kuad 350 here.
Easy to maneuver through Timberland when needed as well, even with 10í drowning rods on board.

I have two ATV's, a 2005 and 2012 Yamaha Big Bear 400 4WD that I use in my feral wild hog trapping operations. Both are the geared transmission models and are real work horses for heavy pulling of loaded trailers, dragging big steel live traps cross country, carrying out hogs, etc. The ATVs can get back into the bad stuff where I cannot go with my 4WD truck. I sometimes have to make two trips in/out with the atv and trailer.

That hog trapping looks like a lot of heavy work on a good day

One loop we have to use our side by side, or load the wheeler in the pickup.
Do it because it is a good area.

Yes it is some heavy, muddy, nasty work. Sometimes I get a stress test several times a week. At 71 I am not sure how much longer I can do this but dread the day I have to give it up.

I trap my own property and abutting neighbors so I don't have to haul my wheeler around. 2016 Yamaha Kodiak 700. Notice that tote on the front rack, GB?

I have caught alot of big dog wrecking boar hogs from Green Swamp over the years. Those were some fun hunts, but the dogs paid a heavy price for those quests. I still have one YBMC cow dog that I use sparingly when needed.

I run a 2003 Kawasaki prairie 360 and pull a small homemade trailer that has atv wheels on it so I can haul critters and gear better. Would sure like one of those 26,000 dollar side by sides with cab and heater but the wife would kill me.

Thatís my right before retirement goal. Get me a Pioneer or Ranger with all my trapping gear already loaded and drop the gate and go. Using a truck right now, but would be much easier with an UTV.

Best purchase Ive made. Haul it to property on utility trailer. This machine is made for trapping. Added carrier on rear for critters...keeps blood and odors out of bed and off equipment.

Keeps my truck out of the mess., especially those rainy, muddy days.

Here is my setup:
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]

I put my critter rack on the front so I am not slinging mud on them. I also took the plastic bed off and threw it away. Built a new one out of marine grade plywood so I can fasten things to the bed. Near impossible to do that with that hollow shell plastic bed. I also made the new bed wider but still inside the overall width of the cab. I was not happy with the front rack and changed it. The current version is the second picture. It was too short before. It is totally removable with 4 pins so the radiator can be serviced.

Also added removable racks to carry drowning rods when needed. The last pic was before I reworked the front rack and redid the bed but was the best one to show the rod rack.

My Subaru mini truck has the best of both worlds for me. 4x4, enclosed cab with heat and a radio, decent mileage and a large box with sides that fold down for easy loading/unloading. Can buy them for much less than a UTV.
