Let’s get started learning more about these fantastic ebikes and if anytime during the read you want to take a closer look at any of them just click on the image or bike name to visit the product page.
So let's take a look at the fat tire electric hunting bikes on the list. And this review has been updated to name a clear winner from the pack. You can't go wrong with any of these three electric hunting bike brands but after the last 12 months or so a clear winner has stood out so at the bottom of this review we name our favorite.

When it comes to getting around in rough terrain all while not disturbing the wildlife, QuietKat bikes will get the job done! With a large selection of fat tire electric bikes built specifically for hunting to choose from, it won't be hard for you to find one that fits your needs. So if you enjoy hunting, camping, or simply riding off the trail, one of these bikes will be perfect for you. Designed to carry heavy loads, these bikes are perfect for installing trail cameras or simply scouting the landscape.
QuietKat is often searched on the internet as "quiet cat" or "quiet kat" but there is only one Quietkat!
Below we will take a deeper look at several of their most popular models. The QuietKat has 5 modes of assisted pedal power and full throttle capabilities, giving the rider a choice of power-assisted pedaling or full power without having to pedal at all. The digital display lets you easily access vital information such as how much battery life is left, distance, power control, and speed. Four and a half-inch wide knobby tread tires are ideal for gripping difficult terrain.
The easy-to-operate throttle makes traveling at an exact speed a cinch, plus disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels offer the control you need to navigate tricky terrain. The seat is adjustable to accommodate various-sized riders. The lithium battery charger completely recharges an empty battery in 6 hours. QuietKat includes a lifetime warranty against defective workmanship for the frame. All other components have a one-year warranty.
Another popular brand of eBike that is great for hunting is the Rambo brand. These bikes are all made of high-quality materials that will last for many years. Rambo has put a lot of time and money into the design of their bikes which really shows! Many of their bikes are geared toward hunters and some even come complete with a camo paint job.
Rambo Bikes includes a one-year warranty for the frame and components. Rambo Bikes comes out of true love for the outdoors. Tailored to fit the needs of hunters, these fat tire bikes are made for all-terrain, with emphasis on fields and woodland. When you ride a Rambo, you are using a powerful, stealthy tool that allows you to travel whisper quietly into the woods to scout the land, carry gear, or simply enjoy the ride.
If you are looking for a combination of durability and affordability, then look no further than Bakcou. Bakcou is newer to the electric hunting eBike market but they have done so much for the industry in a short amount of time. Each bike that they produce is made from the highest quality materials and are more affordable than both Rambo Bikes and QuietKat.
While they are a lesser-known brand, Bakcou is making a name for themselves with the products they produce. Many would agree that Bakcou are the best bikes on the market for hunters today. They put a lot of work and effort into designing eBikes that hunters can actually afford without having to sacrifice quality. Hunters will be happy to find that Bakcou have four different models to choose from and each with their own features.

You can go just about anywhere with this bike so getting to those hard to reach hunting areas will not be a problem. This bike features a Bafang 750W BBSH02 High Torque Mid Drive and a long-lasting LG 48V10.4AH battery.
To keep riders safe, this fat tire electric bike has Logan HD-E500 2 Piston Hydraulic 180mm disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. The bike has a maximum range of 19 miles and a maximum unassisted speed of 19MPH.
A thumb throttle is also included with this amazing model.

A durable Aluminum Alloy 6061 will easily hold up to wet conditions without the need to worry about rusting. This will allow you to cross streams and ride in the rain.
Built to last, the durable R750XP G3 Carbon eBike has a solid aluminum alloy 6061 frame and dipped in carbon paint.

This duo of battery and motor will give you a maximum speed of 19 MPH unassisted and a range of 20 miles without pedaling.

The main difference between the R750XP models apart from the paint job is the choice of the drive train. The Carbon model comes with a derailleur set up while the Camo model comes with a 3 spd internal rear cog system. The choice of derailleur or rear cog is something to consider.
Both options are great, while the derailleur will give you more options to choose from when climbing hills the rear cog is an internal component with less moving parts so it's a fraction quieter and requires no oiling or regular maintenance, some prefer the rear cog as it's one less component to get snagged in the thick brush but that is almost never an issue. whichever system you choose you will have fun!
"I love the Rambo bike I bought. It's great on hill climbs and tough as nails. Reaches about 20 miles an hr so it's perfect for what I need it for." - Phil
This fat tire electric hunting bike is one of Rambo’s newest models and comes in their new camo paint job that was designed with the hunter and concealment in mind.

If you are looking for something a little smaller than the eBikes above, then you might want to check out these smaller eBikes. While they may be smaller than their counterparts, they are just as impressive. Both Rambo and QuietKat have put a lot of time and work into producing these smaller units.
This smaller eBike model comes with a super-strong 750-watt Bafang BBSHD rear hub motor that will quickly get you from place to place. While it has a small to medium-sized frame it can carry up to 300 pounds of load which is really amazing!

This bike comes in black, white or tan and is the only compact folding hunting eBike of the list. It’s lightweight and compact folding size makes it extremely easy to take with you, stick it in the boot of the car and pull it out when you’re ready to enter woods to reach your blind or stand. It has 20” wheels compared to the standard 26” that the other full-size eBikes use.
At only 50 pounds, the Rambo R35OJR is one of the easiest to carry hunting eBikes on the market today. Built for both space and budget in mind, you can store this affordable model just about anywhere.
Just like all Rambo models, this unit comes standard with a durable aluminum alloy 6061 frame. This bike has an energy-efficient 350-watt Bafang rear hub motor that is powered by an LG 36 volt 10.4AH battery.

SHE IS A BEAST
"You can feel the power assist join with your pedaling and you can control the amount of assist on-the-fly with the controls on the left handlebar. She can now keep up with anyone in the group, and could ace them to the top of any hill, if she desired. Money well spent!" - Robert M
Now that we have learned all about the amazing eBikes that are perfect for hunting, we will take a look at some handy bike trailers. As a hunter, you know all too well that you probably can’t fit all your gear on your eBike so having a bike trailer to help bring your gear up the trail is vital. Additionally, these trailers made by QuietKat and Rambo are great for bringing back big game such as deer.
If you have a lot of hunting gear or you need an easy way to bring that trophy home, then the FatKat cargo trailer will help you get the job done. This trailer has a 14”x 24” carrying space which can hold a lot of items. It quickly attaches to the rear axle and has a single wheel design that adds stability and maneuverability. Purposely built to be no wider than the eBike itself so this single-wheeled trailer with rear suspension and quick attachment/release only adds to the hunt.
This single wheeled cart was designed for those who need to carry gear deep into the backcountry. Great for hauling out game, you will have plenty of room with a basket size of 18.75″ wide x 25.25″ long x 11.25″ tall. Due to its low profile, it can easily be pulled along narrow pathways. Priced just right, this cargo trailer will not break the bank.
IT’S A NICE TRAILER
"So it comes with mounting hardware and is a pretty good system for quickly taking it on and off the bike Phantom RS. I load it up with four bag of groceries and will be using it for some bikepacking trips. It pulls nice and the rear shock keeps it from bouncing around too much when empty. The bike tracks better when the trailer is attached which is kind of fun because you can lean a little more into turns." - Joe
As you can see, both of these eBike brands are great for hunting. Each of their models offers something different but they all are made from durable materials. Each bike on this list was designed to travel long distances under rough conditions without making noise. If you are thinking of getting a new eBike for the purpose of hunting, you really can’t go wrong with either of these brands! So check them out for yourself to see which might be right for you.
One thing that separates these two is their warranties. Rambo offers a 1-year limited warranty. While Quietkat offers a 1-year limited warranty on all it's components including the battery, but each frame is covered by a lifetime warranty. Quietkat has been around longer and are a proven, reliable manufacturer. They've got it figured out and this year's catalog shows just how good they are. Rambo is a new, small company with big ambitions and a quality product that they can stand behind.
So what do you think of Quietkat & Rambo's 2018 catalog? will any of the ebikes tempt you? Let us know what you think. You can leave a comment below or give us a call with any questions you may have. We'd love to know your thoughts..
So why did we pick the Storm as our favorite electric hunting bike? As we mentioned earlier in the article, the Bakcou Storm comes with an unrestricted 1000 watt motor with max output of up to 1500 watts. With it being unrestricted it means you can easily switch between the 750-watt and the 1000-watt seting depending on where you are and what local regulations are imposed. Each of these options comes standard with a Bakcou Storm or Mule. The bike has a range of 40 miles making it one of the best electric bikes for hunting ever produced.
The Storm is the absolute BEST hunting ebike on the market! The "torque sensing" Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor certainly sets it apart from its a competition but the full suspension, hill climbing, small front chainring, and large rear cassette gearing, wide handlebars, locking grips, aggressive wide pedals, large 203 rotors, and hydraulic brakes, Maxxis Minion tires with puncture-proof lining placed between the tube and tire is what makes it so comfortable, safe, functional, and fun to ride. Stand over the height of 30.5 inches.
As you can see, the Bakcou Storm in all its glory is one of the best eBikes for hunters. The main points for buying the Storm ahead of the others are the following key points:
