Is This The Hunting Truck of the Future?
By Ben Romans
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to blend your old hunting truck with a tank, the Batmobile, and possibly a Transformer Autobot? Well, Parker Brothers Concepts, a fabrication specialty company in Florida, didn’t just ponder the thought—they actually created their vision.
Enter The Boss—a reworked Hummer H1 created for an outdoorsman from the future.
An article on FOX News says the vehicle has gull-wing doors and a protected perch on top for shooters—you know, in case those pesky whitetails decide to unite and go on the offensive one day. In addition, the machine has six video cameras on the exterior of the vehicle wired to monitors inside, custom leather seats and trim, magnetic camouflage panels that can swap out to match changing terrain, and can be ordered with its own remote helicopter drone.
The base model prices out around $200,000, and depending on the options a potential buyer adds on, the ceiling can go up to $500,000—but I’m sure the company will be willing to talk about financing options after you get a chance to take it out for a test drive.
