The Opening Day rush is on, and Bud’s PowerSports is working hard to help every hunter get his or her ATV or SxS vehicle in order before this Oct. 10. Bud’s PowerSports service writer Don Fritz compared it to another holiday rush.
“We’re getting ready for hunting season, and it’s kind of funny,” Fritz said. “We all know Christmas is coming, it’s coming Dec. 25, right? But yet there’s always a last-minute rush. What’s exciting about it is each year there are more and more accessories for hunters, whether that’s archery or different gun racks or holders.”
Popular UTV add-ons include heaters, windshields, roofs and full enclosures – “for when the weather does change and you get a rainy day you can still hop in your rig and it’s not open,” Fritz said. “We’re seeing folks coming in asking for a plethora of things that work with the Polaris’ lock-and-ride system. And that has really anything: racks that hold a shovel or an axe, fire extinguisher holders, coolers, or any type of storage. There are other companies out there like Ryfab that make accessories for Polaris and other brands. There are pages and pages of catalogues.”
“You can get a trailer designed to be towed behind your ATV/UTV still allowing you to maneuver around gates that range from $900-1700. Having a trailer like this will allow you to get way out away from folks and explore, and do some back-country hunting and camping,” Fritz said. “You can be set up to be out there for days.”
