Considerations When Hunting With ATVs
In many states, it is illegal to hunt from any motorized vehicle, including ATVs; this includes molesting, stirring up, or driving any game animals or game birds with a motorized vehicle.
It is illegal in some states to operate an ATV off the trail, or there may be trails specifically closed to ATV use.
In many states, it is prohibited to operate an ATV off roads or trails in a manner that damages or disturbs the land, wildlife, or vegetation.
Some states require that ATVs be equipped with approved and operating spark-arresting mufflers and comply with sound regulations.
