@painter yes in the meantime I learned about its capabilities including floating. That vehicle is tempting. We ve got next to no water area where I am permitted to hunt. A few ducks, occasional Egyptian geese, but they re often to close to inhabited areas - so regulations do require a special permit to hunt / shoot within a certain distance to "inhabited dwellings" (legal term). Also - most lakes, ponds aren't allowed to be navigated with any machinery - and in particular not with something that has a combustion engine. (emergency services excepted) Only rivers Rhine, Elbe, Weser, Main, some - canals, lake konstanz (Bodensee) may be permitted to use combustion engines. Definitely conservation areas are not permitted by any vehicle. Need special permission to navigate - may be even forbidden when rowing. Simply have to stay off that area.
When I am invited to go for duck or geese hunt - we ve got a few retriever dogs, and wearing waders. ;) not really funny but serves the purpose So doing it old school.

The Argo has some capabilities that are definitely rare in ATV. I would never make full use of it but also no place where to stow it when not used. If I would live close or inside the hunting area I would consider seriously an ATV.

And if I did my Lab would have my pants in pieces when I got back. Quite right too !
I read the other day that Labradors were originally from Newfoundland and Newfoundlands were from Labrador (dogs this is). Not sure if true

Why is that a bad thing?
They made a movie about it

Ok maybe not the best analogy. I have been known to wander freely in my garden naked (no neighbours), last time it got me into hot water was when one of my children's teachers (female) came round 2 summers ago during lock down, turned up unannounced with some textbooks for the kids, didn't even call out - just came straight thru into the back garden. Good job I was hanging up a pillow case on the line and not a solitary ankle sock!

The Argo isn't the fastest vehicle in the water being as the six wheel drive tires facilitate its movement through the water and its abit bumpy on rough terrain as doesn't have any suspension as standard.
