Farming and ATV use - What you need to know!

Farm safety is imperative and always has been! If you use ATV's on your farm, read on for some great insights.
The all-terrain vehicle (ATV), also known as three and four-wheelers, was initially developed in Japan as a farm-to-town vehicle in isolated, mountainous areas. During spring thaws and rainy seasons steep mountainous roads were often impassable with conventional vehicles. It soon became a recreational vehicle however, providing transportation to areas inaccessible by other motorized transport. And, it wasn't long before the Japanese manufacturers realized that the ATV could be sold to Americans.
When the ATV first appeared in the United States in the 1970's, it was promoted and sold as a recreational vehicle designed to provide "thrills" for the rider. This is still its primary use today. Shortly, however, sportsmen found that the ATV was a useful machine to move through areas not accessible with pick-up trucks, four-wheel drives, or other motorized vehicles. The ATV became popular as a hunting vehicle and was used to reach remote areas and to transport game back out.

The True Versatility of ATV's for Ranch Work

Horses getting replaced by ATV's? Whoa! Farm & ranch, check out how utilitarian atv's are!
Selection of ATV size should be governed by how it will be used.
"We are replacing horses with all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) on many ranches," says Nick Hamilton, general manager of Hoffpauir Polaris in Goldthwaite. "ATVs cost less to operate than maintaining a horse. If an ATV is not worked, you do not feed it.

Why an ATV Over a Horse?

Another great article on how ATV's are competing with horses for hunting & work!
Why an ATV Over a Horse?
Hunting season is upon us here in Colorado and estimates for ourundefined local forest range upwards of 38,000 hunters in our area. Wow, that's a lot of folks with guns! Obviously many of these folks are purist hunters who disdain anyone who may not have the desire or be physically able to walk the miles needed to stalk the wily elk and deer. Other hunters will drag huge horse trailers with built in living quarters for hundreds of miles just so they have something to feed, untangle, and listen to all night long. Still others will load ATVs on the back of their pickups or flat-bed trailers and mount the steel steeds rather than the hay-burners. All have the same objective but different approaches.

New ATV Rules In Effect For Colorado Hunters

Colorado hunters read on! There are a few new rules that directly affect you if you live in Colorado!
With huge mountains, clear streams and lots of public land, Colorado has some of the most scenic backcountry on earth. Complimenting the beautiful scenery is the abundant and varied wildlife. This is partly due to Colorado's Division of Wildlife and the efforts of outdoor enthusiasts who want to keep their resources plentiful. With the cooperation of ranchers, farmers, and private landowners, Colorado improves wildlife habitat with an ongoing system of management objectives and goals.
Resident hunters should be aware of important changes that have been initiated for all-terrain vehicles in the 2000 and 2001 hunting seasons. This is the first year for a season structure for big game. 
*NOTE: Hunt codes have changed. Do not use last year's hunt codes

Campfire Safety Tips

How to Pick Your Spot

Follow these steps when picking your burning site to promote wildfire safety:
  • DO NOT build a fire at a site in hazardous, dry conditions. DO NOT build a fire if the campground, area, or event rules prohibit campfires.
  • FIND OUT if the campground has an existing fire ring or fire pit.
  • If there is not an existing fire pit, and pits are allowed, look for a site that is at least fifteen feet away from tent walls, shrubs, trees or other flammable objects. Also beware of low-hanging branches overhead.
Note: in some areas digging pits are not allowed because of archaeological or other concerns. Find out the rules in your area please.
