Editor's Note: Author Brad Fenson recently had a chance to put the Can-Am Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition HD10 to use on an Alberta black bear hunt. You can read that story here.
The rain made traveling the boreal region’s flooded trails a challenge, but the Cam-Am Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition HD10, with its 1,000 cc engine, didn’t disappoint. When I shot my big black bear, we were able to get the Defender right to the animal.
Our round trip was close to 34 miles, and with the Defender full of bear we used the winch to ensure we got through the saturated muskeg without incident. I can’t imagine how we would have gotten out of the bush without the Can-Am.
The Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition was developed by a unique team of Mossy Oak and Can-Am pro staff. The features they came up with led to the development of the ultimate hunting unit. Accessories like a 4,500-pound winch, hard roof (which was a blessing in the rain), gun boots that kept our rifles and optics clean and dry, tool boxes, under-seat storage, a headache rack, gear rail, aggressive tires, full skid plate and a spotlight are things hunters would order extra anyway, so Can-Am includes them out of the gate.
Add fancy wheels and a Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo finish, and you’ve got a workhorse that proves its weight in bear meat.
