Manitoba Whitetail

Have you had time to spend some time in the outdoors to harvest a Whitetail Buck?

Tom is home and has the opportunity t spend a little time doing some deer hunting.  With his 300 tika 3  he nails this nice Buck.

Home made deer sausage, pepperoni, and jerky will taste pretty good doing some ice fishing this winter..

Sitting in the Rain in Manitoba

Nick is definition of  a good hunter. Pouring rain 2 nights  sitting in a tree stand which is not ground height as his wife had thought.. but physio climbing was great for a cracked shoulder. He passed on many bear and took a few walleye, has memories to reminisce of a Black bear hunt in Manitoba.

Jeff Sticks a Trophy

HE said only One!

Well his 4th trip and he gets the Color phase he was wanting 2 years ago.  7pm May 28 with his Hoyt in hand, and Rage Broad heads he nails this trophy while standing in the stand in Manitoba.  Jeff has done the time and has taken good bears while hunting with Big Grass. Hes passed on some took a good bear to then watch a monster come in later.

Does he need any more?

Not likely but once you have harvested one Bear it is like a disease you want to harvest another.  When you are not in the stand and time allows we take time to sit at the Lake of the Prairies to do some fishing..  Here he pulled in a Northern Pike on Johns Rod and even smiled for the picture.

Activity at the baits weas good Old fuzzy butt attended regularly filling his belly on Big Grass Oats and Grease and the tastey beaver bait. We hope he gains lots of weight so someone can see him this fall.

Big Grass Big Bear

Buddy nails this 6 ft monster with his Kimber 30-06.  He watched a sow and cubs Wednesday nite and listened to a Ruffy Grouse do the mating call all evening withing 20 yds behind the stand.

Night four to the  Park stand to have a doe walk near bottom of stand  by 530.  Wow I thought I was Bear hunting! he says…   730 2 young bear arrive to check out the menu at Big Grass…   Patience she Says!  A Big Boar!!   Do you believe everything an Outfitter says? well Buddy was Patient and and hour later he Rocked this Bruin…  just minutes after pulling the trigger he heard the death moan. Wow what a Rush!!

Then the next Rush begins.

Llooking for the bear  its almost dark.    Wow there it is, Chris has no problem locating it about 60 yards from the bait, huge trees laying down it was a jungle back there.. A tarp to wrap it in and start to Tug!

thank gosh for mobiles  JUdy Harley HELP!!  and they arrive, with the Wolverine wiggle closer winch out and pull that Big Bruin back to the bait.. Winch it up in the box and 6 guys just barely got the the box tipped, heading home for the Glory and to retell the story!

Beaver for Bear bait

Are you bear hunting this spring?

Big Grass feels good baiting practices make Good Spring Bear hunts. Barrels with the stable food of Oats and Grease, then the best bear food is Beaver. We place in a barrel with logs or a lid screwed on to give hunter opportunity to determine 1. shooter, 2. good shot, 3. dead bear.

George harvested a great bear after watching him for 2 nights seeing many smaller bear feeding at the barrel.  It makes the hair stand on you neck when a large bruin enters the bait, with the slow hesitant walk, like a ghost in the nite. All of a sudden he is there! George hear a snap then he was there the first nite.

 

Animals of Big Grass

squirrel days

top of the tree to you all!

Sammy's ball

will you play with me?

Chessys dont share

I dont share

We pass the winter keeping busy with the Big Grass Animals. Wild animals need to be fed during Cold winters, HOWEVER we dont consider red Squirrels part of this family… Our Log Cabins suffer if a red quirrel chooses to locate his home into a Cabin. So standing rule:Dont show your face close to house or cabins or the 410 will blast you from that tree! yep it did…   over the years many red squirrels have not lived to tell tale…

Sammy Jo continues to bring the ball, frozen lump of snow or a stick for you to throw.. IN the house or outside she has something to throw.. I always wanted a dog to bring me a stick, Help please have her only retreive 1/2 a day! She’s Judys dog,  not spoiled lol, decently behaved, loves to play, and runs like a crazy after a ball or anything.

The Male Chessy of the House Copper! a True Male, spoiled, does the Chessy walk um Im not sure if I want to do that, thinks he should get what he wants.  But hes a great retreiver, lots of go, strong body, and will work hard in the field this fall.

Snow storm of the winter keeping us home

Have you experienced a winter snowstorm, keeping you home for 3 full days? With winds gusting to 75mph, about one and half feet of snow falling in about 12 hours and our winds didnot stop for 48 hours.  Wow we were Stormed and Blown but like all people who live in Manitoba we just sit tight till it disperses and then we start digging out..  While it was storming the dogs and I used  snow shoeing as my method of travel.. We put on about 6 miles in the 2 days of blocked roads, and then it was just fun to travel along the banks threw the woods to see neat paterns and banks in the snow.
