Hey everyone, took a tour out at grants lake yesterday, for anyone that hunts the posts there are only 20 posts now (reduced from the 54) as follows: 6 on the west, 6 on the south, 2 on the trail that goes north to the lure crop on the south end and 6 on the east side. I know it can be a gong show there some weekend mornings but in a pinch there is some good shoots from there. Happy Hunting!

Thanks for the heads up - how do you get to the south and north posts? I've only ever set up at the west posts along the boulders. I find the map doesnt quite match the ground once out there.

I usually either come in along the north road past thr old game inspection post. (off highwy 6)

Thx!

They really re-did the posts there. They are spaced out quite abit. There are no posts on the noth side and the posts on the west,south, and YAWN....east side are all on mud roads. I bet that Manitoba conservation will be keeping a close eye on what goes on there this year with the new posts..... IE: Hunters are required to be within an arms reach of the post...

Hopefully they do something about guys parking around there wherever they want. There are designated parking areas out there but most guys don't use them. Instead they just park wherever is convent for whoever they are hunting.

The lure crop is to help attract the birds so we hunters can hunt them.
Ah no! Lure crops are planted to keep waterfowl away from farmers' fields during the harvest. As harvest dates are totally weather dependent, one never knows to what degree lure crops will be necessary. Suffice it to say that there is always a need for lure crops only they are needed more during wet, slow harvest years.

Hunters are not allowed anywhere near lure crops!

from my experiance lure crops were bought from farmers in the field to save the other fields. they are not usually planted specifically for that purpose. The exception may be oak hammock marsh on the south side.

Does anyone know why natural resources would remove posts, make a hard place to hunt harder and un safer. It cost them more to remove the existing posts . When there were 50 some posts at least a hunter could move to area were birds were flying and have a chance, still be legal by hunting by a unused post. Now too bad for hunter. Thanks conservation drive away more hunters from sport! Try get field permission, hope got deep pockets and lots of cash .there was nothing wrong with original post placement's .infact it worked very well and was safe. As for parking there are no posted parking spots. Use to have marked areas with signs but no more.

There are no posts on north, because of main gravel road, and hydro lines. Been that way sign hunting boundrys were originally put in place.
