I had a thread earlier about hunting from a bike and there were mixed feelings but I have since bought one and started fixing it up to hunt. It is GREAT!! I can ride the roads in complete silence and get the stand in way less than half the time. So far I havenít carried a deer out yet because I killed two last sitting and knew there was no way to carry two so got the truck but Iím sure I can do it after having messed around with it.
I used to ride a mountain bike out to the blind when duck hunting the refuges in Central CA back in the 90's. It was so much faster getting back and forth. We carried our decoys on our backs and put on our waders when we got to the water. I heard that they banned this, but don't know for sure since I moved to Texas. Where I live now, I like to walk to my blind. I've seen animals walking back that I wouldn't have seen otherwise.

I use a mountain bike quite a bit. I have my game cart that I attach to my rear rack as a trailer. Several of the public hunting areas don't allow motorized vehicles. That rig makes it a LOT easier to get back away from the crowds and haul out game. Can't say it's real silent though. I've silenced my cart the best I can and it still rattles as I go down the path.
