OT Deer hunting, Texas style

A buddy sent me these. I don't know anything about it except what can be seen in the pictures. Another picture in the series shows three similar vehicles parked together.

Is this what you coil-spring guys call "Long arm" suspension?

Not recommended for hunting that involves firearms.

That is the dumbest thing I've ever seen!
My sister lives in a little town SW of Austin, and she says you can't get a tire fixed or a electrical switch installed,
Everyone is out deer hunting!

crazy and dumb, for sure.....but i'm kinda impressed by the engineering they had to put into this thing.

wonder what axles, engine, trans, etc they are running....

I tried a quick search to find more info but all i can find is pictures...no technical specs....booooo

Don't have the time right now to do it myself.

What town Southwest of Austin? My wife is from Smithville, Texas which is down that way.

I lived in South Texas and hunted it very, very hard for 24 years and I've never seen anything even close to that. Looks like one of those Alabama swamp buggy things to me.

I have however seen lots of vehicle with tower stand built in the bed of them!!

If it would have had 6 deer handing off the side I might believe it.

2001 TJ Built, Wrecked, then Built Bigger, then rolled and fixed again, now rolled again. Do you see a pattern!!

I googled it. After the first few links everything was in foreign language. Some looked Spanish, some looked Hebrew (maybe) and I don't know what other languages were represented, but none sounded very Texan to me.

Welcome to Texas boys..... my guess would be that that is around Llano somewhere from the granite looking rocks....looks like fun to me. The last month or so, you should have seen the highways on weekends, every other vehicle has been a truck pulling a trailer with an ATV heading to the lease, and when gun season started last weekend, nothing but hunters, I pulled into one service station to get gas and counted 8 rigs......wish I could afford a lease....Brad, you need to get back here and we can buy us some land in West Texas....
