    PA Will Allow Wildlife Officers to Issue Tickets for State Motor Vehicle Violations

    By Chad Love

    Should wildlife officers have the power to write tickets for state motor vehicle violations when they find someone illegally riding an ATV on state lands? Everyone knows that if you get caught riding an ATV in a non-motorized area that you'll get fined for it.

    Problem is, those fines don't seem to be much of a deterrent for some. So the state of Pennsylvania is set to give its wildlife officers the power to issue tickets not only for riding in an unauthorized area, but also for state motor vehicle violations.

    From this story in the Pocono Record:
    In a matter of hours Saturday, a wildlife conservation officer patrolling state game lands in Shohola issued tickets to seven ATV riders. All-terrain vehicles are not allowed on any state game lands. But the threat of a fine of between $100 and $200 does not deter riders from tearing up trails in popular no-ride-zones like at the top of Camelback Mountain in Monroe County.

    Bill Limiting Idaho Wildlife Department's Control of ATVs Passes

    By Chad Love

    A controversial bill designed to limit the ability of the Idaho Fish & Game Department to regulate ATV hunting in backcountry areas has narrowly passed the state's senate resource committee. If signed into law, state wildlife officials warn they'll lose one of their key management tools.

    From this story on

    The Senate Resources Committee approved the bill on a 5-4 vote, with two Republicans joining committee Democrats in casting no votes. The slim margin of victory in committee, coupled with objections lodged by the state's top fish and game official, could hamper the bill's chances of clearing the full Senate. The measure, approved in the House earlier this month, takes aim at Fish and Game rules that require ATV-mounted hunters in a third of Idaho's hunting units to avoid off-road vehicle trails. Agency officials claim regulating where hunters using ATVs can travel is a crucial tool for managing big game populations. A similar measure was tabled last year so an interim committee could hammer out a compromise.

    Chinese Man Builds $600 Military Style ATV

    By Chad Love

    So you really want an ATV for your hunting spot, but just don't have the money to buy one. You could keep hoofing it, which would keep you healthy. You could steal one, which would probably land you in the klink, or you could do what this guy did and just make your own.

    From this story (Lost in Translation Warning: The grammar in the linked story reads a bit like a cheap toy instruction manual.) on

    Chinese folks have always had the self-entertaining mindset to compare little things to big renowned things even just for the slightest resemblance. We had a post last year talking about a homemade knockoff Lamborghini by a 25 years old guy. Recently a chef from Zigong City, Sichuan Province became famous on the Internet for spending only about 4000 yuan in designing and handcrafting what netizens called a knockoff “Hummer."

    Review: Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4WD Crew Cab

    By Slaton L. White

    Ten years ago I went on a week-long salmon safari in Alaska, living out of a slide-in camper in a Silverado equipped with a Duramax 6.6-liter V8 turbo diesel. It was an epic adventure, and looking at my old notes I see I raved about the truck’s performance. “Moved well from a dead stop. Quiet, even at full throttle. MPG: averaged between 11 to 14 mpg.”

    A lot has happened to GM since then. After teetering on the brink of insolvency for years, it finally plunged into bankruptcy two years ago. What many people don’t know was that the company came perilously close to Chapter 11 in the 1990s. But they got a stay of execution. Know why? The Silverado. It was just about the only GM product people wanted to buy...and they bought enough of them to help keep the company afloat.

    The Silverado was good then...and it’s good now.

    I can say that after logging 900 miles in one recently. The 2500 4WD Crew Cab is a stout build, and boasts a maximum towing rating of 17,000 pounds. That means that when you drive it without a trailer or with an empty bed, it’s a bit rough. But when you get some weight on those rear wheels, it tames down nicely.
