I was out on my evening walk the other day and came across a guy on a ebike and he was skirting around a locked Forest Service gate. I struck up a conversation with him and his ebike he was riding. I learned a lot about the bikes and it got me thinking about using them for hunting. I did some searches online and see that its already a thing. Back when i was in the Navy and stationed in West Virginia (yep believe it or not we had Navy in the mountain state back in the day) i did a lot of mountain biking in the hills around the base. We had tons of single track and forest service roads to explore. I came up on deer all the time that didn't hear me coming. It made me think even then of hunting off a mountain bike something i never actually tried. I have hunted off a motor cycle on forest roads but it never was successful. Now that ebike hunting is a thing its got me interested. I've been searching for bikes online and have narrowed down my interest this bike with a 2000w motor. Some say to get a 750W motor because its considered a none motorized vehicle so you can ride them anywhere you can ride a bike. I did some research and found thats not actually true although almost everyone on youtube claims it. The forest service does not allow ebikes on trails reserved for mountain bikes. So i see no real advantage then for staying 750watts and below. I might as well get more power. The place i hunting in the southern sierras has motor cycle trails i could ride it on anyways. This is the bike i think i want as of now.
