Side by side with tracks are the way to go but prepare yourself. Carry a set of snow shoes, shovel, extra fuel they are gas hogs and a small butane torch ( hard to wrench and work on if frozen up). And a basic over night kit for cold weather.good luck and happy hunting

 :yeah: I know way too many guys being stranded in tracked machines a long ways from help. Almost makes someone not wanna ride one without another just incase. I know guys carrying full on tool boxes just incase the tracks break

Why not a snowmobile and a few extra guys on snowmobiles to help to cover a lot more ground? With a side by side take a satellite phone with the groomer’s phone number just in case. Ask the groomer how many side by sides he has rescued.

You are right a tracked side by side is no snowmobile
Tracked side-by-side’s work great for what they’re meant for. Which is running the roads that are to snowed in to drive trucks. Or sticking to groomed trails now that we can ride those. I go off trail in mine but only when there is a few Feet of snow or less. Sure if Tye shoots a monster down in the bottom of a steep draw and decides he’s got to cruise the thing right down to it in 5 feet of snow he will probably get stuck. But  I think it’s gonna work perfect for what he needs it for. And it is awesome to get back in the heated cab, can’t do that on a snowmobile.

What's one of those tracked machines do speed wise? I imagine it'll probably slow you down quite a bit compared to wheels? Kinda cool I am not really involved in that world but I didn't know they made tracks for them.

spent a couple days on our guides tracked SxS, they do not go fast, steady as they go.  I can see how people get stuck or broke down, you would think they are tanks and could go anywhere, but they are great for what they are built for.  We had no issues with his, but we stayed on the roads, went slow over downed trees and turned around on the side of the road.  When we retire and move to a 4 season state, there will be one in my garage.

In deep snow we keep it in low so 10 miles an hour at the most for us. I see guys running in high going 20-30 miles an hour on compact snow/ cleared road, it’s a loud rough ride. We have a friend that ran his in high in deep snow and he made it about 7-8 miles before the belt melted. He misunderstood someone telling him about what gear to run, lesson learned.
$5 is a lot of money if you ain't got it

:yeah:  They are NOT snowmobiles and shouldn’t be operated as such.

I thought Washington was a 4-season state. I have Buttercups, Lakes, Leaves and Snow.

Well covered some country today with Steve and turned up 35 bucks! The side by side worked great. Gonna hit a new  unit tomorrow. I’ll try my best to keep this thing updated but gonna be hunting hard until the end.

Side note, the Entiat is getting over run with blacktails :chuckle: Steve really wanted me to shoot this booner blackie but I got a mule deer tag  :dunno: :sry:

I've seen a lot of blacktails in the Entiat over the last 10 years.  Definitely a cross as they usually have a mule deer body with larger antlers.  Cool to see for sure

Obviously it's got a blacktail but as far as WDFW is concerned doesn't blacktail vs mule deer come down to the unit it's in?

Yes, you are correct.....it is east of the PCT so it is a mule deer
