Looking for something like an electric bike to take to and from the stand. Any recommendations or options such as just a fat Tire bike instead?

Saw one in a bicycle store, owner bought a kit off Amazon and built it himself, way cheaper than buying one, just an idea

Check on Craigs for used fat tire and mountain bikes. Kits available on Amazon and eBay.

2 forums https://motoredbikes.com/ and https://motorbicycling.com/
On one of them a guy built or is building a dual power, 2 stroke gas motor and a electric hub power for quiet running.

Trailer, consider a single wheel, they are not wide, but don't hang up on narrow trails. Con they tip over with heavy off set loads.

not overly expensive, enough options to make it last longer to ride, faster if necessary, and more torque to go up and down hills.

These look interesting. I don't have one either.

Picked up a fat tire bike barely used by a guy locally. Gonna ride it a while, see how it goes and might get an electric bike conversion kit in the future, maybe not. I can use this thing to help get in shape for an elk hunt, so it’s a win win.

If you go electric, buy from eBay or Amazon so you have an easy refund option. Some of the dealers on the foums have awful reputations, A better bet would be someone local on in the DFW area.

I have bought from some of the dealers, I consider myself lucky, except for slow shipping never had a problem.

Check this one out. https://www.juicedbikes.com/products/camp-scrambler Ran into a guy this morning that is building his own version of this one. He is using a fat tire bike that he cut up and created a custom frame. A 750 watt electric front hub for power.

Man that’s not a bad price. If I did that my wife would kill me, but she has let me buy two new ASF protein feeders, an ASF blind, a no till and crimper for our UTVs. I am
Anxious to see how the no till works, also interested to see how the bike works out there. Took it for a quick couple mile ride today. Getting comfortable with it but do need to get in bike shape. I hope the weather allows a more regular use, it was wet and cold here early this week

I remember seeing a bike at a hunting show a few years ago and I think it was "Rambo". It seemed really geared for off road and it wasn't cheap. I have always thought about getting one and I really had to hold onto my check book to keep from getting it. Txbuck once you get it figured out give me a shout and I may follow your lead.

Check out Rad Power bikes out of Seattle. I saw several different models when I was up that way last summer. They deal direct and have a good customer support reputation based on what I heard from a couple of owners.
