Gun Racks, Dog Kennels, and More: Win Can-Am’s ‘Ultimate Waterfowl’ Hunting Vehicle

The mud-tackling Defender Max X MR is customized with a Mossy Oak wrap, gun racks, and a kennel to create a purpose-built, waterfowl-chasing side-by-side. Now you can drive right into the honey hole to set up your decoys.

The waterfowl build is another way the brand is showcasing custom options available with its Defender series UTVs. While you may have already seen the Defender Max Limited HD10 modified for upland hunting, Can-Am built this side-by-side from the traction-minded Defender Max X MR model, the brand’s workhorse for boggy, unrelenting conditions.

The Can-Am Defender comes in several packages that buyers can spec out for a variety of different uses. Farm haulers, trail drivers, and hunters alike can customize their builds with the racks, bumpers, and lights they desire.

Muddy Workhorse

The base Can-Am Defender Max X MR starts at $22,000. It’s the brand’s largest UTV for sloppy terrain, has seating for six, 15 inches of ground clearance, and a front differential with MUD mode.

Powered by a Rotax HD10 V-Twin engine, the Defender Max can haul 1,300 pounds and tow up to 2,500 pounds. There’s also a 4,500-pound winch for yanking tree stumps and other obstacles out of the muck.

Inside, a 7.6-inch digital display tracks common measures like speed, fuel, and trip mileage and has indicators for 4×4 mode, differential locks, and engine diagnostics.

Can-Am Defender: Ultimate Waterfowl UTV

To take things into the marsh, Can-Am partnered with several duck-hunting organizations and brands including Gunner Kennels, Ducks Unlimited, Mossy Oak, Quack Rack, Lifetime Decoys, and more. Performance add-ons include a snorkel kit, lighting, bumpers, and extra racks for storing decoys. And the suspension and tire upgrades should tame some of the ups and downs of the marsh.

Custom Mossy Oak-wrap gun racks and a dog kennel round out the hunting-specific features. The Ultimate Waterfowl UTV has an estimated build value of $40,000.
