The 3 Types of Outdoorsmen Who Definitely Need a Yamaha UTV

It's quite clear: a Yamaha UTV is going to change your outdoor life for the better.

Who needs a Yamaha UTV? Owning one would be great for just about anyone, but the folks who seem to get the most out of it are just like you and I: stewards of the great outdoors.

In order to take full advantage of the benefits a Yamaha machine can provide, we wanted to highlight the types of outdoorsmen and women who would definitely see a boost in productivity, enjoyment, and fulfillment of their time in the wide open spaces we all know and love.

It's tough to say anyone who spends their time in wild places wouldn't benefit from owning a UTV, but we can think of three in particular who could, and should, seriously consider it.

Time in the outdoors made better? Who would have thought?!

1. Big Game Hunters Who Scour the Backcountry


There's a lot of cool things about hunting the backcountry, but hauling out meat isn't necessarily one of them. Sure, it's the actual "fruit of your labor," and it signifies plenty of organic, free range meat in your freezer, but no one can actually say they like throwing their back out trying to lug an elk quarter over a giant fallen tree.

Equip yourself with a UTV like the Yamaha Wolverine X4, and you're going to be amazed at the ground you can cover once the recovery begins.

As long as they're legal where you're hunting, and ideally not disturbing any other hunters trying their best to punch a tag, then using the features of a Wolverine X4 gives you an edge. There's a ground clearance of 10.7 inches, both front and rear independent double wishbone suspension systems, and it's less than 60 inches wide so you can squeeze through the tight spots.

It can make it to where you need to go, and put away the miles in a fraction of the time you'd ever do on foot.

Plus, you don't have to go solo, which is more fun (and frankly, safer). You and three pals can comfortably hit the woods, and there will be company to share the good times with.

2. Duck Hunters With Too Many Decoys

If you're duck hunting, you're dealing with decoys more often than not. And if you want to do it the right way, you want to carry a lot of decoys with you. If they can spot a good-sized flock from far away, the odds of waterfowl cruising in to check it out (and give you a shot) are far higher.

But nobody likes lugging a ton of decoys in a sled or giant pack, especially when you add in weights to keep them anchored. That's where a Yamaha Wolverine X4 would come in handy. There's plenty of space, it can tow 2,000 pounds, meaning even a small trailer full of decoys is no match.

If you're trailer-less but still have a lot to carry, no problem. By folding and sliding the rear seats forward, the rear area expands and transports up to 600 pounds. There are multiple tie-down points to secure all your gear, and to get it all where you need to go.

Duck hunting and the requisite decoys are only an example. Really, any outdoorsmen with a lot of gear are going to see the difference a side-by-side makes.

3. Speed Junkies Who Want the Best Views


Sometimes you just want to cover the miles of off-road wilderness trails that make our country great, You don't have to be a hunter to appreciate a Yamaha Wolverine X4. It's the 847cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine that people get addicted to.

Why? Because the engine is super quiet, has low vibration levels, and still has enough power and speed to get you to the top, both figuratively and literally. It has an Ultramatic V-belt transmission with all-wheel engine braking so you can take it to the extremes.

Whether you're trying to get to a good location to glass a mountainside, or just trying to race your buddies up a serious slope, you're going to want to be in a Wolverine X4.

Best of all, you can be confident that you're driving a reliable machine built on a foundation of class-leading industry technology.

Yamaha reached the level of prestige they're in because of a dedication to work-ready functionality, plus the wherewithal to remember that sometimes, it's about fun.

In other words, any outdoorsman is going to get a lot done, and have a good time doing it.
