The John Deere Ga­tor™ XUV835M an­swers the call of the out­doors. By Mark Mo­doski

The hunt be­gins well be­fore the sea­son opens. Months of prepa­ra­tion, hard work, and an­tic­i­pa­tion will hope­fully re­sult in see­ing a tro­phy come across your sight­line. But there’s a lot to be done be­fore you get that op­por­tu­nity. Scout­ing acres of for­est in search of a place to hang your stand, clear­ing brush, set­ting up camp, and gathering fire­wood are just part of what goes into hav­ing a suc­cess­ful fall cam­paign. You’ll need plenty of tools at your dis­posal, and a qual­ity XUV is cer­tainly one of them. For ac­com­plish­ing what a hunter needs, the John Deere Ga­tor XUV835M will serve you well. Sur­vey­ing land to lo­cate game is a big part of the hunt. The XUV835M’S abil­ity to han­dle the tough­est ter­rain will help you cover lots of ground to lo­cate scrapes and other signs of quarry and to set trail cams. Cov­er­ing ground and gain­ing van­tage points can mean trekking up hills and steep trails. The XUV835M has four-wheel drive, power steer­ing, and an in­de­pen­dent front and rear sus­pen­sion. Cou­pled with a choice of ag­gres­sive, all-ter­rain or ex­treme-ter­rain tires and 11.2 inches of ground clear­ance, the XUV835MV will take you any­where you want to go. For trav­el­ing in low-light con­di­tions, halo­gen LED lights will keep you on your path. Once you’ve staked your claim, get­ting gear where it needs to go be­comes para­mount. The over­sized stor­age space of the XUV835M will ac­com­mo­date your stand, bags of bait and feed, and any other equip­ment you’ll need with a mas­sive 45x12x52, ex­tra-durable cargo box. Ad­di­tional stor­age comes by way of cup hold­ers in the dash, 56.69 liters of space un­der the seat, 3.85 liters in the glove box, op­tional space un­der the hood, and ac­ces­sories to ex­tend the bed. The XU835M seats three com­fort­ably, elim­i­nat­ing the need for a sec­ond ve­hi­cle.
