Melissa Bachman is an accomplished hunter with a unique ability to share her love for the great outdoors and all things wild with her passionate fans and viewers.
Growing up in a region known to sportsman for its unique blend of hunting and fishing opportunities, Melissa Bachman immersed herself in a central Minnesota lifestyle filled with options. Decisions regarding which tree stand to hunt before school or if she’d have better luck on snow geese were just some of the decisions a young woman had to make.
Surrounded by a family filled with love and mentors galore, Melissa pursued her academic life with the very same tenacity she approached her passion for hunting. After graduating with honors and armed with a degree in television broadcasting, and another in Spanish, from St Cloud State University, Melissa set her sights on a career in outdoor television.
Melissa began as a TV intern, and within months was offered a position as a full time producer where she traveled the country filming, producing and writing shows with a variety of incredible hunters on some fantastic adventures.
Although close to her dream job, Melissa truly longed to be the one outwitting her prey, and squeezing the trigger. So she spent every spare moment of her free time arduously filming and editing her own hunts. Finally, with time, patience and persistence, Melissa got some solid shows into the right hands and her wish became reality.
Now Melissa spends nearly 200 days a year in the field hunting the globe and producing her show Winchester Deadly Passion, a top-notch, adrenaline-pumping hunting show now in its third season
