Spent 3 rainy days duck hunting in the Mississippi Delta with my P2. I only took a camera one morning due to rain, mud and ice. Here are a few pics I took:

Drove miles of flooded beans and crops, had water over the doors and a bow wave coming over the hood at one point (not recommended). I pushed so much water that the bike self-cleaned on the way in. On the way out which was water first, mud last: black gumbo tar ball.











I am collecting my thoughts for a pros/cons review for the Pioneer as a duck hunting/bean field machine. I think I am going to give it another 3 weeks of hard use to have enough time to give an honest, objective review.

I will say this, it fired right up at 24 degrees and a howling wind, and all the light bars/cubes/meter worked fine spoiling wet and at 24 degrees, so I hope they have fixed my issue with that for good!

Awesome pics.

Looks like you were aided by having an experienced driver on hand.

We had too much water due to very heavy rains the middle of the week. The ducks were really spread out, since there was sheet water in every field. Hopefully, Arkansas has a little better conditions.

You might want to extend the air intake snorkel if you keep using it like that. Better safe than sorry when your out in the water.

Well its a buddys farm we go to. Hes got a couple hundred acres and theres a bayou that runs through it so if waters low, we hunt bayou and if its high it goes into his fields so either way we have a blast.

I assume someone will come out with an after-market snorkle. I did not intend to be in water much over the middle of the tires until it "happened." And its kinda like being a hog in the sausage factory, once your committed to getting out of that low spot, your COMMITTED! :D

Just some 2in flex hose (fertilizer or spa hose) connected to a PVC connector (at air box) and it would be easy to run one up the roll bars. Just looking at them it looked like it would be easy to mount one up and convert back to stock if wanted.

Sounds like the Honda Pioneer did a great job for you. I will be interested to hear your thoughts on it. I'm happy to hear that the Pioneer held up to wet and cold conditions pretty well.

I also appreciate your dogs camo vest.

3" steel #3's, I shot my 4 mallards, and kept waiting for 2 more of anything else to come by and finish up my limit. Only more mallards. Its very hard not to shoot more of 'em!
