Zig zag on dirt road

Hey all, haven't had the bike long. It's a 2013 sportsman 850 xp with a 3 inch lift 2.5 inch stretch on 33 bkt's. I'm just wondering if a bike with this big of tire always ride like crap on soft loose dirt? Like it legit swerves all over the place at 25mph. It's pretty sketch to be honest. On pavement it doest swerve near as bad buthing does a little and the handlebars shake pretty food at 35. I haven't been over 40 because of this. Don't really need to be going fast but I would like if it didn't swerve or shake. Anything I can do?

Thanks for the reply guys. These are the answers I was expecting. It's just my bike shakes so much worse than the friends I ride with. I took a look recently and think the top of the tie rods might be a little loose. Just seemed like a lot of play up there. Gonna give that a look when we do my axles this weekend and I shall share what I find.
While I have yall here... will a sportsman put itself in 4x4 ever? Noticed my front wheel pulling while in 2x4. Or could this be a fault of some kind
Okay thank you I will add that to my weekend list. Yall are the best thank you
