I had ATV's before I moved into a UTV and I had a lot of fun with them. The difference on my atv and my current UTV in width is 7-8" wider for the UTV. Now yes they make much wider ones today but that is one of the reasons I chose the one I have to still be able to travel on ATV trails. I don't totally understand why they are making ATV's so darn big now, they are only 48" wide at the wheels but look how far the plastic hangs over, I have seen some that are as wide as my UTV in total overall width. I know many of the ATV's in the article are really big, tall and heavy and can't be that easy to ride being that top heavy as other posters have mentioned. Not trying to bash ATV's..heck no...just didn't care for the way the article was made to make people believe that only bigger is better.
I agree and it bugs me in general that people think they need a big 4x4 to go hunting. In the mtns here, mass is a handicap.

If they got a UTV for hunting it would probably be a Ranger High Lifter.
Yeah, I think it's what works best in each location. For the snow, a snowmobile could be the best option. On the lake, a boat is good for hunting fish.

A vehicle that can go on land and sea is not good at either, so a true all-terrain vehicle wouldn't be the best at any one thing. A specialized vehicle for every terrain is the way to go.
