Your best tools for hunting season are a good shotgun or rifle, a trusty dog, waterproof boots, and an ATV or UTV. With their ability to cross difficult terrain, to carry you much deeper into the backcountry, and to carry out any game if you’re lucky, no tool has transformed hunting more in the past two decades than a UTV or ATV. It’s little wonder every hunting camp has at least one parked just outside the creaky cabin door. They’re modern day pack mules, and accessories make them even more capable. Seizmik has been providing quality accessories for years, and we’ve found a couple that are perfect for hunting season.
OPEN CARRY – THE ICOS GUN CARRYING SYSTEM
ICOS is the name for Seizmiks In Cab On Seat gun holder system. It’s really an ingeniously simple, highly effective tool to keep your expensive hunting hardware from being beaten to death on the trail to your hunting stand. We’ve always cringed at the thought of our expensive scope being knocked out of sight thanks to a bumpy ride, and the ICOS greatly reduces that possibility.
Made from a proprietary closed cell foam that won’t attract or hold moisture, the ICOS system straps to your bucket or bench type UTV seat in seconds using the machines lap and shoulder belt. Once strapped into place, your rifle or shotgun slips into one of the two available foam pockets, and is securely fastened down across the shoulder stock. Details of the ICOS system are:
Holds two guns securely surrounded in soft, cushioned channels that won’t mar firearm
ICOS 2 features pockets for extended magazines common to sporting rifles such as the AR-15
Pistol pouches can be added on side, making capacity 4 firearms
Safe positioning. ICOS keeps muzzles pointed safely downward
Quickly and silently mount or remove guns in seconds.
Glass filled nylon buckles and secure straps are tough and reliable.
Installs in seconds without tools. Can easily be used in multiple UTVs
We really like the ICOS gun transport system. It’s quick, secure, and safe. It holds our shotgun and rifles securely, yet flexible enough to take any shock load. We even drove across a plowed field, and at the end of the test our rifle was still riding safely. It’s the best system we know of.
ROOM TO EXPAND - EXTENDED MAGAZINES and PISTOL POUCHES
The ICOS system doesn’t forget hunters or target shoots with pistols or extended magazines common to sporting rifles like the AR-15. A second-generation model called the ICOS2 AR gets the job done.
The ICOS2 AR is significantly larger than the standard ICOS, and although traditional hunting rifles or shotguns will easily fit into the ICOS 2 AR, it was designed to hold guns with extended magazines, and even two extra magazines. Constructed of the same materials as the standard ICOS, the ICOS 2 AR operates in exactly the same way. It quickly fastens down into the vehicle seat, and a strap secures the stock. The ICOS2 AR also comes with a bonus feature; it can carry two pistols.
The ICOS pistol and magazine holder fastens to the side of the ICOS2 AR and allows you to carry 4 guns. Key features are:
Molded rubber housing holds medium to large guns securely and safely.
Mounting hardware does not contact firearm surface.
Extra magazines can be stored separately in divided slot.
Durable, and reliable straps & buckles hold guns and magazines securely, even on rough trails.
Designed for quick access. Finger pockets allow you to securely grasp pistol and remove it in one quick motion.
FIELD READY – THE ICOS SYSTEM
There are two things we look for when carrying guns anywhere. We want them to be safely secured, but also well protected. The ICOS and ICOS2 AR provides both. They’re also quiet, quick, and durable. It’s exactly the type of hunting accessory we look for. We’ve found another hunting buddy!
