Rev Up Your Hunt: ATV vs. UTV – Which is the Ultimate Choice for Hunters?



ATVs and UTVs have been a game changer for hunters. We can go deeper and hunt longer with these fantastic vehicles. But, let’s clear up one misconception straight away. We don’t technically hunt from an ATV or UTV, both vehicles are about transporting hunters, gear, and even your dog to a hunting area and then the ethical sportsman does their actual hunting on foot only. As both offroad vehicle types have their advantages, let’s compare the ATV vs. the UTV and decide which is the ultimate choice for hunters.

ATV vs. UTV: Definitions:

ATV Definition

An all-terrain vehicle (ATV) refers to an off-highway vehicle with four large low-pressure tires, where the rider straddles a seat and steers the vehicle with handlebars. They are most typically designed to carry a single rider and some select models are designed to carry two passengers.

UTV Definition

A utility task vehicle or utility terrain vehicle (UTV) refers to a larger vehicle where the riders sit side by side, and many people refer to them simply as a “side by side”. In addition to the car-like steering and seating arrangement, the UTV is much larger than an ATV, can haul more, and features a roll cage or even an enclosed cab. Models range widely in their intended purpose and can carry anywhere from 2 -6 passengers depending on the model. For the purpose of this comparison, we’re referring to a Polaris Ranger NorthStar vehicle. CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING
