When hunters need a vehicle for their excursions, the first choice tends to be a heavy-duty pickup — think an old Ford F-250 equipped with a viewing box on the bed, a few gun holders within, a beer cooler, and for the fancy even a camouflaged paint job. Parker Brothers Concepts, creator of pro-wrestler John Cena's Incenarator from this year's Gumball 300, decided to take that concept a step further, building what it calls The Boss Hunting Truck and billing it as "the luxury hunting truck of the future."
If you want to hunt in opulence, (and who doesn't?) the cost of this truck will set you back as much as a nice house. The Boss Hunting Truck starts at $200,000, but by ticking various options, it will quickly rise to $500,000.
Based off a Hummer H1 K10 Series, the Boss Hunter sports a tuned 6.5-liter turbo diesel meshed to its four-wheel drive system. The body and bumpers are completely redesigned, leaving a result that appears less militarian and more "War of the Worlds." Or the ultimate Sasquatch hunter.
The truck was designed and built by Parker Brothers Concepts specifically for hunting expeditions in search of large game in Africa, Alaska, falconing in the Middle East, and for Will Smith in "I Am Legend." (Not sure Will got the memo.)
Inside E.T's worst nightmare sits an abundance of leather with "The Boss" decals and a custom steering wheel. Five monitors for six external cameras are equipped, along with a CB radio and internal gun holsters with additional storage for ammo. The shop will also add a drone plane with iPad control and camera feed for "live viewing" of any extant deer, squirrels or chupacabra, if you so desire. Additional gun storage can also be optioned, as can a magnetically interchangeable exterior camo design.
The suspension has been specifically constructed for the truck, and monster 44-inch Super Swamper wheels with inflate/deflate capability come attached, ideal for conquering any terrain. Two 12,000 lb. winches adorn to the front and rear bumpers, too — ideal for rescuing those that can't go as far.
Parker Brothers is currently selling these big game (alien? human?) hunting trucks from their Melbourne, Fla. shop. Quite how the price tag can vary $300,000 based on the seemingly few available options sparks quite the mystery. One thing remains clear, however: if you come across this truck hiding surreptitiously in the woods, you'd better hope to be freshly shaven. It would suck to be mistaken for Sasquatch.
