    Ways to carry metal detector on a 4-wheeler

    Does anyone have any good ways to carry a metal detector on a 4-wheeler ? If you have pics that would be great. Thanks !

    I have two gun rack hold clamps with a rubber cinch on each one on the handlebars on my Rokon that holds my detector quite snugly. Works like a charm. My Rokon jolts around a lot more than an ATV does!

    I also carry mine in the gun rack and have never had an issue. If I'm going to be in a lot of brush, I will shorten the shaft. Just have to drive like you have some since. LoLClick image for larger version.

    Yea like wise. Gun rack holders. Or bow rack holders they both work the same. I also just fold it down and just strap it to the back carrier so it wont vibrate around Click image for larger version.

    I use the front rack and like someone else said, if the trail is narrow, I shorten the shaft. If it is real bumpy I will put it in one of my padded gun bags.
