An older gentleman near me has a 2001 Yamaha Timberwolf for sale in great shape, excellent plastics, no problems and new tires. I can buy it for $1500. Looks like a good deal, but I want the experts opinions.
I know it'll be slow but I am just going to be using it for trails and deer hunting.
Are parts hard to find for it? Just curious about if I should go ahead and pull the trigger on it. It's clean as a pin and everything works.
Thanks!

I don’t know much about Yamaha ATV’s What size is the engine? I’d say if it’s in great condition and low miles it might be worth it. Sounds like a good deal.

They are on the smaller side but they are extremely reliable. I’d say it’s a good deal if the condition it like you say it is. If you take care of it you can get your money back when you move to something bigger.

It's the 250 so I think it's a 221cc from what I read somewhere. It looks clean and they say there's nothing wrong with it, so I hope to get a good look at it after church today. Thanks very much!

Sounds good, the statement above about being very reliable- that’s worth a lot!

Well, he sold it out from under me... So obviously it wasn't what God wanted for me. Must be something even better coming! I want a bigger one anyway - I'm 6'-6" 230.

Umm. Yes a bigger machine for you, for sure, lol. I guess get whatever your budget allows. Polaris, Can Am, a Honda will be the least amount of repairs, maintenance. You would fit a 700 to 850 nicely.

Devine intervention is a great way to explain it to the wife about needing a bigger one! I’m 5’10 and my 250 felt fine until I got the 800. The good thing about a smaller atv is they are more nimble. If you are hunting in the woods they are a lot easier to maneuver around trees. You have to take into consideration your weight and a 200lb(hopefully) deer. You might need a little more power.

Ideally I would really like to have a Honda. I'm restoring a 1974 Yamaha Enduro DT360A and am pretty much down to tuning the carburetor. I'm looking to sell it or trade for a nice one.

I used to have a Sportsman 335 but thought maybe this 250 would have been easier to maneuver. I would really like to have a 400 or bigger if I can sell my DT360A.
