Four-wheeler has role in outdoors

The author has a confession to make, he always had a bias against vehicles of any kind in the woods, unless they were work related. Tractors, trucks, dozers, skidders are okay. But dirt bikes and four-wheelers in the woods and fields for recreation just didn't seem to fit. Author guesses that it goes back to the many times he has walked a couple of miles into the woods, only to have the piercing engine of a dirt bike, spook a turkey he was working, or a deer he had been quietly watching work his way.
