Anybody own or have fished out of a snobear before?  Ice fishing is comming and if this winter is anything like last winter, the old 4 wheeler just aint gonna cut it.  Any info or opinions would be helpfull.

The snobear is nice but the front has skis and not tracks.  I have seen them get buried bad in slush pockets.

my father-in-law has one and so do two other folks in my town.  I have fished in them.  Yea the ski thing up front is an issue, but they are an amazing asset to the ice fishing world.  With all the snow and access issues we have had over the past 3 years....this machine has been worth its weight in gold.  Give him a call 701-680-1021.

I'd take one, but the prices are a lil stiff.  Now if I only worked summer and had winters off completely where I could go and fish when I want and stay for as long as I want, I would definately want one, but to only use a few times a year its a waste.IMO

Ha ha.  That is a pretty good point actually.  You can use them for about the same amount of time each year.  Don't forget to include the cost of a trailer to haul it around.

Why not find a good 4stroke snowmobile, used yamaha for $4-5k and you are capable of going anywhere while towing the ice house you already own?
Just a thought......
That's what I do

The cheaper way to go is to find a used GEO Tracker or Suzuki and put a set of beefed up ATV Mattracks on it.  GEO Tracker's can be found for around $3k-$5k and a set of mattracks will run about 5k.  So, for around $10k or under you can have a pretty nice set up.  Couple friends have these and they're awesome and go almost anywhere.

Well al I am saying is go fishing in one.  They are well worth the money.  You can start it in the morning.  Go get some coffee while it warms up.  Run out in the Snobear in your shorts and t-shirt.  Fish all day and go to any lake you want, jump from spot to spot in little to no time.... Ya a sled will is nice but you freeze your butt off all day.
