Been looking at utvs snd wanted to get opinions on what you have or have seen others use.

I see a lot recommend polaris ranger but there seems to be a lot of different ones so if you recommend them, which one?

Been looking at gators as well but doesnt seem they get used for hunting much.

I mainly want one that is reliable and trouble free as possible that can get me through flooded rice fields, dirt roads and out to pastures for quail hunting.

Take a look at the Kawasaki Mule Pro FXT. I believe it's the best on the market.

We run 3 Polaris ranger Crew 900's. For what we use them for I wouldn't trade them for anything.

I had a Ranger 6 by 6 and wore it smooth out. I switched to a Ranger 4 by 4 CRew 900. It can't do what the 6 wheeler could do and vice versa. I can carry 5 men, gear and a dog with absolute comfort. On the other hand my 6 wheeler did not have that big of a payload capability. When you pointed where it should go, it would go. For two people and a dog that 6 by was the best dern transportation I ever had. The 4 by is nice, quiet ect but every now and again I miss the "I can go anywhere" attitude of the 6 by.

For a flooded rice field you can..

Id go with something liquid cooled and lots of low end power and ground clearance... if you don't need a crew don't get it..

Trouble free running anything in that type of mud/water is gona be a mouthful... keep it clean... after every job like that it needst to be maintained... wheel bearings and cvts will go out on you

Our Ranger crew is dependable. We have had it 4 years. I agree that if you don't need a crew, then go with the single cab.

Anyone have experience with the Mahindra UTVs? I saw a couple of my local dealership and they looked nice; however, I only have experience with Polaris.

Flooded rice fields - air boat, or one of those that has 6 or 8 wheels and floats.
