We're retired so I don't have to go out till the snow gets packed down or roads made, but will get the ski for the tongue and have chains for the ATV.
It gets so that doesn't work I'll stay home.

Lots of choices, lots of brands.

I believe about 2400#, then you add all the stuff your gonna bring. I'm figuring total will be under 3000# easily.
ATV is about 750 so total weight on ice should be quite a bit less than the 8x16-21 footers hauled by a truck.

Congrats on the ice shack purchase, if I were you I'd buy tracks for the wheeler unless you only want to fish in optimum conditions, tracks turn an ATV into a real puller when conditions get bad.

Tracks are about 3k, I'll stay off ice if it's that bad, but ya, they work pretty well.
