I hunt on a grazing lease that is many tens of thousands acres large. There is one road in and you can not drive off it nor can I use an ATV due to the potential for fires. There is no camping either. Its impossible to walk in and out in a day. So its pedal power. Using my C. Hellis for the day.

Fantastic. And a REAL bike no less. Sounds like a great place to hunt. What kind of birds?

My friend GLS from Georgia and on this site regularly uses a bike when he is turkey hunting. He'll probably chime in when he sees this.

Read the title and thought you had a new girlfriend.

Anyway, be careful. We have a non E fat tire bike, and the kid has taken a few nasty spills on it, when he used it instead of the 29er for mountain bike team practice.

Nothing hurt save his pride, but, he is a kid. I would have been killed.
Best,
Ted

They are E-bikes

I think it is old age because I look at that bike and think that would be the ticket, but not for me. I saw a girl about 13 years of age cruising down a long street on one of those electric scooters. She was going pretty fast in her summer hot weather attire and Immediately I thought how scraped up she'd be if she fell. Damascus shotgun and an electric bicycle, who would have ever thought!

The area is slightly rolling, very dry, full of sage and chokecherries, sandy floor and pockets of sharptail and huns. No pheasants. Dugouts where they exist are full of ducks. E-bikes are the rage in the cities and I expect as they get more powerful we'll start seeing more beefed up ATV/motorbike style run on electricity. Not sure if that will be a good thing or bad. Fortunately I have been active all my life and enjoy the exercise I will get on a full pedal bike.

Tamid, Great ride. Do what you want, but I've been riding long enough to know that sooner or later you are going to break that nice shotgun. It needs a hard case !

I think the gun across the handle bars is a recipe for trouble - to the gun, or to your body parts when it hangs on something. If this was something I was going to do lot, I would invest in a saddle scabbard that lets it ride with butt pointed rearward and up. Might take a few trial and error adaptations to get it right, but someone must have done this already.
