YAMAHA’S WOLVERINE X2 NAMED FIELD AND STREAM MAGAZINE’S BEST OF THE BEST!

 

Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, has earned the 2018 Field and Stream Magazine Best Hunting and Fishing Gear of 2018 honor for the Wolverine X2 Side-by-Side (SxS).

“The perfect hunting rig needs to be roomy enough to carry a couple of hunters and all their gear, powerful enough to get them into hard-to-reach places, and quiet enough to not send deer bolting in every direction,” wrote Field and Stream contributor Rick Sosebee. “The new Yamaha Wolverine X2 does all that, with a killer warranty and a surprising extra that’s perfect for the outdoorsman.”

Named the top off-road vehicle for hunting and fishing adventures, the 2019 Wolverine X2 combines Proven Off-Road capability and confidence-inspiring performance with Real World comfort in a compact, nimble chassis to make it the ultimate trail-exploring vehicle in tight, technical terrain. It is purpose built for exploration, work, and play, featuring a comfortable two-person cab configuration, a smooth, quiet, and vibration-free 847-cc twin cylinder engine, a 600-pound-rated dump bed, and 2,000-pound towing capacity. The new X2 also comes with Yamaha’s unmatched 10-year CVT belt warranty – an industry exclusive.

 

 

“The Wolverine X2 offers the ultimate off-road adventure package, combining Yamaha’s industry-leading durability and reliability in a compact and nimble chassis,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s motorsports group marketing manager. “The Wolverine X2’s Proven Off-Road design gives it the best balance of capability, comfort and confidence in real world environments to suit the needs of everyone from seasoned trail-goers to first-time adventure-seekers, earning its spot among Field and Stream’s best outdoor products of 2018.”

 

 

Every Yamaha SxS is assembled at Yamaha’s U.S. factory in Newnan, Georgia, for worldwide distribution.

When Should You Head To Your Deer Stand?

When should I get to my stand and how early is too early? Two questions every hunter should ask when preparing for any deer hunt. Some fellow hunters provide their take on when they like to head out to the stand.

How early is too early and how late is too late when going to and from stands? WOW, that’s a great question that really can’t be answered with a one part answer due to so many factors. To get the right answer you would have to look at the time of year, deer movement, weather conditions, etc. 

As a rule of thumb for me, I like to get to the stand at least 30 minutes before daylight for an early morning sit. One hour is even better. For an afternoon sit, I like to get there two hours before prime time movement for that time of the year, at a minimum.   However, as I said above there are so many factors in answering this question that I would never say there is an absolute answer to it.”

Wade Middleton, Host of Americana Outdoors®

Well, I’ll start by prefacing my answer that I am not a fan of all-day sits…that considered, in the AM, can’t get in too early (in most cases).  Always good to be settled/quiet for a period of time before the woods officially comes to life for the day.  As far as leaving in the AM, if there is action, stay put.  If nothing is moving, at all or for an extended period of time, and you don’t have pics to show a pattern of late-morning wanderers, get out.  Head back to camp and solidify the plan for the afternoon/evening.

 For the PM, same as the AM…too early is a good default.  No harm in saving the sore backside if you don’t have a comfortable set-up.  Sneaking in just before a forecasted “prime time” is too risky.  I’m lazy but not that lazy!  As far as getting out, dark is the default.  Even with no movement I would vote for staying as long as you can, with a couple of exceptions – you can more easily bail without mucking up the area for future hunts or if Angel is making venison salisbury steak that night.”

Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV and Side-by-Side Marketing Manager & Avid Hunter

I’ve always wanted to get in my stands really early in the morning. I prefer about 30 minutes before it actually starts breaking. That may seem early, but bumping one by being a little late is just not worth it to me. Then when the hunt is over, I gauge when to leave by what is around as it is getting dark. I don’t want other deer to see me getting out of the blind during daylight. Usually when it gets black dark, I’ll sneak out.”

Clark Wendlandt, Host of Fishing & Hunting Texas™, Cabela’s Pro Staff

As you can see, everyone has their own preference. However, the general consensus for morning hunts, plan on being squared away at least 30 minutes to an hour before daylight. Regarding afternoon hunts, confirm what the deer are doing that time of year. If you have Stealth Cams setup, check the times of when the photos are taken and gauge from there.

We hope this insight will help you get settled in the stand and ready for when that shooter comes in. Happy hunting!
