Anyone use the Traeger?

Good eating

Wildmeat is healthier and cooked correctly becomes a delicacy. Traeger grills do an awesome job on cured venison. I did brine for 7 days then smoked for 6 hours

Another big Black on the Stealth

In the dark, and hopefully next time he comes a hunter will be on the stand it’s picture time.   These big bears frequent the bait more often when the rut begins.

Beaver hunting in Manitoba

Beaver hunting In Manitoba for best bear bait .   Using a 17HMR which really rocks that animal when hit if you ever used one. Copper our Chesapeake  retreives it from the creek.

Jess B, Wis May 9, takes another nice bear

Bear #4 in the books, all no tracking,. Her 30-06 rocks bears when you are a great shot.8 bears at the bait she too the largest at 2 min till dark. “”Wow they were everywhere! I nailed the Biggest!”” Says Jess

Preparing for the hunt

how do you get ready for the hunt? Jess arrived t camp with her 30-06 and  has no prob placing bullets to the chamber.

Her added storage on butt is handy. She loads up fast.

Who goes there at BigGrass?

stealth camera captures this great colored Bruin 11 pm.  We hope as tur turns on he will frequent bait earlier. Amazing color and size!

California goose hunting

Our friend Jason who lives in California sends a few pics of his hunting… Who would thing this was hunting season with temps in the 75F, Good goose hunting is always 40F its hard to understand location and seasons.  Worst thing is the south gets all these good plummed birds and awesome colors and we see the poor off colored ones but they still make good jerky and are a whale of a time of whackin and stacking…  our season runs end of September threw till 21 of October is when Big Grass is in the field doing our thing..

Manitoba Black Bearhunting

Jeff H returns May 2018 to take a colored bear is what was planned.   Bears are not planners when we are hunting….. They arrive if they are hungry and if there is what they want at the barrel… After sticking this great bear with his easton arrow and the skull went to the beetles.   it came back as 17 3/16 just short of Boone and Crocket bear score here in Manitoba… But still a great bear.. His other 2 bears 18 8/16 and 20 1/16 if they’d been taken with his bow they’d made book….. Anyway what a great trophy black bear Jeff harvested in May 2018

Happy Holidays from Big Grass and Tom and Judy

Black bear in Manitoba

Black bear management for Big Bruins has been Manitoba’s Goal


Over many years of hunting our large bodied Old bears we hold a status of Large Bc scores in Canada.  Have you had the opportunity of harvesting a B&C bear?

Outfitters and residents are proud of the quality of animals we have in the province to harvest allowing hunters from Manitoba or around the world to reap the success..  The low pressure and quantity of food allows for bears to mature and with age the large Skull measurement to give result in management.

Elusive Bruins in the Rut, and unskilled hunters give these big Colored bears the opportunity to stay alive and grow to 18-22 bc with ages of 10-25 years.   Where food sources are great weights rise fast cause they forage on abundance alphafa fields bordering the RMNP. Over all the bear is a grazer during summer months in agricultural Manitoba however when the last of the year  by mid September  they start on good layers of fat the good crops of ferries and acorns
