    Default Check out the Quiet Kat Off road portable hunting vehicle.

    I just saw this and wanted to share. It caught my eye as it would be nice for me being that I have disabilities. I can't hike too far. This would get me further out.

    Very interesting. I assume it uses battery power, most likely marine batteries. Quiet, no exhaust fumes. Only thing not shown is how the guy gets it out of the truck. Those batteries aren't the lightest in the world, but then neither is carrying a treestand a long way. It might be more stable as a four wheeler.

    Electric carts are becoming the in thing all around. Tim Austin of Vortex Optics is impaired, but don't stand in his way once he decides to go to parts he wishes. His one man seater electric cart is set up to carrier his bows and stuff and can drag in a deer, it has that much power. The Hover Rounds you see in department and grocery stores about the same thing except Tim's knobby tires, mag wheels and able to leap tall buildings. Yeah, I saw him launch his cart right off the ground and clear the sidewalk.
    You got the money, they have bigger wheeler electric carts and bigger knobby tires for one person and they full size two seat ATVs, all electric.
    The single seat jobbies have enough power to travel right at 20 miles. I know. There's a impaired person in Banner, Illinois, where the archery shop is. Banner to Canton is 18 miles and he makes around trip ever so often.

    Most impress I've saw is a track driven model. Lil sucker goes everywhere.

    And then the price of these move ya around carts can be down right expensive.

    And those that have to remain in the cart, no problem. On the market are giant round hay bales, only hollow. Drive right in, open window and you're cookin'. Friend of mine has one for his father and mother, both headin for their 80s. Both still use bows! And all are still trying to beat Mom who's got the biggest deer. Wilma dropped a monster about 5 years ago, but with a shotgun.

    Electric golf carts make great conversions, jack 'em a bit for more ground clearance, add a set of knobbys, a bow rack, and you're all set.

    Found Tim and the hay bale. Tim was dealer/customer support at Vortex at the time. I would guess that he still is. Tim also helps others who are impaired.

    Another bale was set up for a novelty shot. Inside, 45 yards. Me, long, tall Shadowcat with 30" stab and I made the shot out of the window. If I can do then someone with one them short things should too.

    I messed up here. I rode with one the Vortex staff shooters and he got lucky with a winning ticket for one of these bales. I could have bought the bale from him for $100. Kind of ashamed to offer him such at the time, he donated it to the club hosting the Vortex Open. It wasn't until on the way home that I told and he said he would have sold it to me.

    Thanks for the replies gents. I posted this on another site and a good question was brought up about my original post. How would a person bring their kill out with the Vehicle I mentioned above. I double checked the website and they don't mention any accessories for hauling game out. I thought about adding a light weight cart to the abck but they're ain't no hitch attachment.

    p.s,
    Sonny...Did you ever get your issue resolved with posting?

    Simon, I'd think you'd be limited to roads and rolling hills like the video. I'm guessing that rocky and brushy terrain would be a problem and drastically reduce run time. You could weld a small plate on the rear rail and install a small ball for a motorcycle swivel hitch and pull a small cart or even one of those game carts. I use a motorcycle to scout and pack game out depending on location, just have to get creative at times. The always used quad would get you a lot further than that quiet Kat will unless your just hunting fields.


    Or maybe just this.

    Thanks. I'm not sure I would get one yet. The area I mainly hunt is "No Motorized Vehicles allowed". So I need to double check the regs to makes sure what they define motorized. It's a quail and Peasant Habitat protected area. I have my eye on a used Kawasaki quad for 3 grand. I had a Honda quad back in the mid 90's.
