      Hi Allen

      Welcome to The site —

      I use a Toyota Tacoma for most of my hunting.  In fact I have been using toyota trucks for some time now.

      How about you ?

      1989 Ford Ranger, extended cab, 2 wheel drive.  I’ve been debating getting a locking differential for it so it doesn’t get stuck in its own shadow!  On the plus side, I have hauled lots of firewood with it, and topsoil for the yard, plus gear for the kids’ camp our church puts on every year; it seems like it gets called to duty pretty often!

      It is amazing what you can get by with – if you use some ingenuity—

      In my youth I have used a 64 Chevy Biscayne station wagon and a Ford fiesta out here in the Mtn West . Those hunts were mostly successful but quite the adventure in some cases ! Life on the edge – haha.

      It’s been several years, yikes, maybe 15 years, since I had a truck. I miss it, but it’s not practical for me right now. Best car I ever owned for all an arounder, my CRV. All wheel drive, although parking along roadways sometimes I wish I had a bit more ground clearance, but it’s excellent in snow. Seats fold down and with a tarp I can easily haul a deer  and gear. I have a hitch attached rack that I’ve hauled a bunch of deer on, as well as crates and coolers. It’s the most practical vehicle I’ve owned. I had a Forrester that was also great, but too small for family and they have that good ol Subaru head gasket issue..   I still want a Tacoma but I keep loving the CRV. dwc

      Over the years I’ve had Fords, Chevys,Toyotas and most recently a Subaru Forrester which suited me fine but mine had an oil consumption issue that got progressively worse. I wanted to go back to a truck but my old 91 Ranger which is a great 4X4 by the way was just getting too old and having to many problems so I began my search for a used truck. I was astounded by the cost of all of them and whoa, the bells and whistles they have added since 91 don’t make them any cheaper. Then I started looking at the Nissan Frontier. Now here was a fairly good looking truck that had excellent fit and finish, a solid ride, a strong v6 engine and if you go with the Pro 4X you get lockers on the rear end and pretty much all the fancy stuff for a fraction of the cost of all the others. I found a 2013 with 68,000 miles on it and bought it. I have to say that while my heart wants to be loyal to my Ford my pocket book says you can’t do that boy so yeah, I’m a Nissan convert for now, we’ll see how is goes. The heated leather seats and the moon roof are pretty awesome and the tailgate is not so high i need a crane to put a deer in the back.
