    Motorbike hunting!

    So is anyone else doing this. I usually drive a land cruiser but I use my triumph tiger as an everyday bike and I much prefer it. Iíve moved a lot on a bike before , stuff you wouldnít believe. I recon itís pretty compťtant to carry a goat over the back of the paniers though itís easy to fill bags with meat and pack them away.

    Don't need a cal really just two trees and some rope

    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    There's a thread or two already about this. You may find some answers there.

    actually I have found any creek crossing a good place to hunt motorbikes usually find them out in the middle of the water just waiting for someone to come along and get them.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I can put you on to a Pub, with poor lighting, where lots of them seem to congregate from dusk onwards..

    No reason why not use it.
    Would be quick on the road and pretty good on tracks.
    Just the issue of security when/if you leave it.
    Can get lockable mesh bags to put your road gear (helemt/pants jacket) in.
    Use over boots and you could ride too and from in your hunting boots.
    Another trick we use is carry a length of light chain and run it though pants leg,jacket sleeve and helmet and lock onto bike.
    Mind you some areas have improved out of sight as cameras have been put up and numbers of people around.

    they are some good tips my brother, i have a full pannier set on my bike so use the panniers themselves to hold all the gear i don't take with me into the bush then across the back seats and panniers make a good surface area to support a small kill. just makes it very easy getting somewhere , its quick enjoyable. i suppose you guys don't have the issue of driving down the road with your kill of show. The UK would be going mental, think just recently in the news somewhere like Canada was reporting on a ute with a deer in the back being a disgusting practise and that it should be covered over and such....
