    “Every year Yamaha Outdoors looks forward to being a part of National Hunting and Fishing Day for its focus on providing a positive environment for outdoors enthusiasts throughout the country,” says Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group. “Yamaha is proud to continue our partnership with NHFD and is excited to give away one of the new Vikings in support of outdoors education and conservation.”

    Scheduled annually on the fourth Saturday of September, this year the celebration of hunting, fishing and conservation is set for September 27. NHFD serves as a vehicle to promote outdoor sports and conservation. Yamaha, through its relationships with organizations such as Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Safari Club International, Buckmasters, National Wild Turkey Federation and NHFD, among others, is a continued supporter of conservation efforts for outdoor recreational enthusiasts.

    Discuss this at our Yamaha Viking Forum.

    “We’re excited to have Yamaha on for another year of support,” says Misty Mitchell, director of conservation programs for Wonders of Wildlife museum in Springfield, Mo. — the official home of National Hunting and Fishing Day. “The Yamaha sweepstakes have been a huge hit among NHF Day event-goers and we look forward to another great turnout at all of our festivities nationwide.”

    One lucky entrant, 18 years-of-age or older, will win a 2014 Yamaha Viking FI 4×4 Hunter Green with Suntop that is assembled in the U.S.A. and comes with a number of hunting accessories. Total approximate retail value is $11,799. No purchase necessary. The sweepstakes ends at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on October 31, 2014. The winner will be determined by random drawing.

        2014 Polaris Ranger XP 900 Deluxe

        While the Polaris Ranger family is best known as work-oriented, Polaris may be trying to change that view with its newest addition – the Ranger XP 900 Deluxe. With this Ranger, Polaris is hoping to appeal to consumers looking for a UTV that can work and play.

          Polaris Ranger Crew

          It looks like Polaris will be putting its awesome ProStar 900 engine to more good use – this time in the Ranger Crew 900.

          The California Environmental Protection Agency Air Resources Board has approved the Ranger Crew 900 for model year 2014. You can see the approval document here.

          Polaris first introduced the ProStar 900 as the powerplant in the RZR XP 900 for the 2011 model year. It then made its way into the RZR XP 4 900 and several limited edition versions. For 2013 Polaris added the mill to the Ranger line with the Ranger XP 900, but tuned quite a bit differently. The Ranger XP 900 produces 62 horsepower, compared to the 88 ponies in the RZR XP 900 family. We’d imagine the Ranger Crew 900 will offer similar performance.

            2013 Polaris Sportsman 400 SE Never let it be said that Polaris isn’t willing to every niche available. The Minnesota-based manufacturer has just released a special edition version of its Sportsman 400 built just for the southern customer – the Polaris Sportsman 400 H.O. South Edition.

            Available in limited quantities within an 11-state region, the Sportsman 400 H.O. Southern Edition features durable steel/LOCK&RIDE front and rear racks with multiple tie-down locations and is highlighted by a new 31.5” seat height and a tighter turning radius than the standard Sportsman 400 H.O. The standard Sportsman 400 H.O., which we reviewed here, has a 33.8″ seat height.
