Big Sand Moose Eberle 57.5

Our first week could not have been better, a perfect 12 for 12.

Chuck Eberle’s 57.5″ bull fell early and started another Moose hunt at Big Sand. High winds, fog and rain plagued the first 3 days, but guides managed to still call out some great rutting bulls.

Oct 5 – Oct 12, 2013

What an incrediable end to our season 8 out of 9 on the final week and if illness had not stopped our last hunter, we’d surely been 9 out 9!

2012 Hunting Results

2012 Moose Hunting Results ( 13 for 18)

What can we say 70 degrees f is not moose hunting weather!
It seems we have found year over year the weather is getting warmer and Sept 22-29th was no different. A good froston the 21 st had us very hopeful we would see cooler temperatures, but it warmed up as the week progressed. Week 2 caught the tail end of the heat and by the evening of the 29th temperatures dropped to the low 30’s f and a huge swing in call response netted us 7 moose by Monday night! An unbelievable change which also brought 30-40 mph wind gusts! Gee whiz what next… well with 1 hunter remaining our 8 th bull fell on Thursday. Another perfect week 8 for 8. After much debate we will be moving our weeks in 2013 and will now have our last week of hunting Oct 5 – Oct 12.. this is almost 2 full weeks later than in 2004, so cold weather here we come, cause Monster Mooseis the name of the game at Big Sand in 2013!

MANITOBA MONSTER MOOSE……….AGAIN!
A fantastic week of hunting saw a huge 57″bull taken by Larry Mabe with a .50 Cal Muzzleloader from under 50 yards shooting a 250 grain bullet on we shot was all that was need from this distance. Larry bragged to Rick about the punch this gun had and while at our target range Larry blasted a 1/2″hole in a 3/8″ plate of steel……..from 150 yards !

The great crew from WILD TV came up for a weeks worth of hunting and unquestionably, host Norm Suva described it as one of the best hunts he’s ever been on. Patrick Goeseke from Hamburg Germany yielded a 50+ inch bull on his final day to complete another great year of hunting MANITOBA MONSTER MOOSE at Big Sand.

2009 Hunting Results

2009 Moose Hunting Results (11 for 19)

Another great year has come to an end. Let it be said, that weather, has a significant outcome on fishing and hunting, and our 2009 Moose Hunt was no different. During the weeks preceding our hunts we saw above average rainfall and well above average temperatures. When we arrived at camp we expected to see all the fall colors we have come to expect, with the golden folage it is truly a sign fall is on it’s way and the rut has begun.

Much to our surprise, the green leaves and + 70 degree weather did little to entice our Moose to fulfil thier manly deed. The evening we hoped would cool off too, but to no avail, with night time temperatures barely going below + 50 degree F, we were seeing temperatures not seen in the north for some time. Now the rain we had over the previous weeks and months also reeked havoc on the acessablity of the land. We also summized this would contribute to lack of movement by the bulls to shorelines and beaches. Those dark palms are easily spotted against the golden backdrop, however this year again, that was not to be. We make no excuses, after many years of tremendous success the hunting gods tuned us in and reminded us that only Mother Nature truly controls our destiny. Let us hope that we can depend on the weather in 2010 to bring some sense of continuity back to the north.
