Since their introduction in the 1980s, the four-wheeled All Terrain Vehicle, or ATV, market has exploded, and possibly no one group has taken to them more than hunters.
They are so common, Mississippians hardly need a calendar to know when deer season is approaching because of the number of trucks towing trailers loaded with ATVs on the interstates and highways as hunters go to camps and prepare for the season.
Highly versatile machines, hunters use them for hauling deer stands, discing food plots, applying herbicides and retrieving harvested animals. And of course, going to and from deer stands.
Though very popular, ATVs do pose dangers, and improper use has resulted in injuries and fatalities.
