PostSubject: Trapping off of quads   Sun Mar 03, 2013 4:54 pm

I have been trapping the last few years and have been using my quad and truck. I like the truck cause its more comfortable but the quad i can get to more places quicker. But im just wondering what do the majority of you guys use do you like trapping off of quads or you your trucks?? Thanks

Quad my self. They are a lot cheaper to fix and like you said they are much quicker from set to set. I have thought about buying a little toyota as a trap truck but I still don't think I would get some of the places I go on the quad.

Quad for sure! Take a beating alot better than your truck. Alot faster set to set and you can go places that you will never get your truck in. I run about 250miles in the truck and about 65 on the quad. It takes me most of the day but with out the quad it would be a 2 day trapline for sure.

Well thanks for the comments. Might just fully run the quad from now on and less beating on the truck.

My buddy built a cab for his quad that he uses for trapping and it works pretty good. Im thinking about doing the same and just put a cab on mine to block out some of the wind.

In my early years, I trapped off a Honda 250 motorcycle. Graduated up to a 3 wheeler and used it for many years. Now I trap from a quad. I do use my pick some on good road areas, but the quad makes getting to those spots a regular vehicle can't go, very easy. I find more sign and trap locations using the quad. A cab wouldn't be a bad idea, but just wondering how you would keep the inside of the front window from steaming up???

I like the your setup with your quad. The cab my buddy built didnt have ddoors but if i build one i will make removalable doors and put a sliding window on each side or something for ventalation.

I have a windshield from an old quad and will see if it fits the new one. I forgot I had it until you showed the picture of yours. Thanks for the idea.

I like that front rack you have nvsage I have a similar rear box but I just might build a front box like that too then I dont have to carry around the pack basket.

nvsage, I see you use a tool bag for your setting equipment like I do. They are the handiest item for that. The one I have has outside pockets to keep my scent in and away from my digging tool, etc. Is the front rack steel or aluminum?

Steel tried aluminum and it bent way easy under the weight of the traps and wax dirt
