    Has anyone used this method? If so what's your opinion on it?

    I thought about it, but that sounds to much like work.

    We do have a good trail system, so it would be feasible to do, but you may be quite tired once you get where your going.

    I figured it'd be hard to shoot a bow or rifle off a mountain bike...

    Edit:after a few beers it'd be hard to ride lol

    And no where to store them!

    Plus the playing cards in the spokes make too much noise.

    Tried it turkey hunting in the Hoosier National Forest several years ago. Problem was I got about 10 miles in and ran out of steam, water and daylight. Peddling those hills was a killer carrying a gun on your back and dressed in camo and a vest. Fortunately, I found a road and flagged down a woman in a minivan that, for some reason, let me put by bike and shotgun in the back while she drove me a number of miles back to the truck just me and her.

    I do think it would work. Just make sure you're prepared physically for the terrain.

    Many of the public land areas that have locked gates are "Foot travel only" fyi.

    Buy an all terrain Segway. I saw a hunting show where they we're going up and down rocky trails, through water, etc...of course you'll spend as much as you would on ATV.

    I used a mountain bike a lot in Alabama in the late 80's for both deer and turkey hunting.
    It worked well. Climbing stand and bow got awkward at times but overall it worked.
    We even made a trailer for dragging deer out.

    In the 90's we used mountain bikes to access a few duck holes on Peabody before people began to blatantly disregard the no vehicle rules.
    We had great success in some holes until the three and four wheelers started showing up.
