Big Grass offers Black bear hunts in Central Manitoba with a success rate as high as 95% and 15% of those bears with skull scores over 19 inches and a HIGH 75 % color phase harvest during these past seasons. Our fall area is not hunted in spring but baits are filled. Some baits are not hunted for 4 years but are kept baited. All stands with ladder access are placed for bow hunters with distances of 18-22 yds and for rifle hunters approx 22- 50 yds with elevations of 12-15 ft.
