First thing you should always do before any hunt is you want to make sure your gear is ready. You want to make sure it’s in good working order because the last thing you want is to be out in the field and have something go wrong and not be prepared. Of course, one of those things to check is your ATV or Side-by-Side before you go out in the field.

Check All your Fluids

So there are some basic things you can go over to make sure you’re good and ready to ride. It primarily comes down to some simple maintenance. Do a standard oil change before you head out. If your vehicle has been sitting over the winter or for long periods of time, you’ll want to have nice, fresh oil.

Look over all your fluid levels and make sure you clean your air filter. Be sure there’s nothing clogged in it or getting in the way. If your ATV or Side-by-Side sits over winter, sometimes mice like to get it in there and chew at some wires and nest.
