Winchester Deadly Passion Returns for Sophomore Season with Melissa Bachman


With 174 days spent in the field seeking big game during 2012, host Melissa Bachman has put in her time to create non-stop action for the second season of Winchester’s Deadly Passion. Tune in beginning next week on the Pursuit Channel on Tuesdays at 6:30 am, Wednesdays at 1:30 pm and Sunday at 7:30 pm ET. Catch a sneak peek into the 2013 episodes below:

This season Melissa shows her deadly skills as she heads to Iowa for the series opener after waiting four years to draw a whitetail bow tag. Check out a preview of episode No. 1 below:

“There’s nothing I am more passionate about than getting into the woods. I live for that challenge, and this year I pushed myself even further by pursing game I’m unfamiliar with – like moose – to show viewers that getting out of your comfort zone sometimes produces the best hunts,” Melissa said. “And I still provide the tips and tactics viewers loved in the first season by giving my honest opinions on today’s outdoor products.”

Future shows have her heading to Newfoundland for moose, Florida for gators (fast becoming her favorite species to hunt), South Dakota for turkeys, and Alaska for black bears. Of course, Bachman travels the country in search of bagging the biggest whitetails, too.

Winchester’s Deadly Passion is 13-weeks of non-stop action and pure entertainment as host Melissa Bachman travels the country going face to face with everything from world-class red stag to 1,000-pound gators to Boone and Crockett whitetails. The show will keep you on the edge of your seat with hardcore hunting mixed with Melissa’s genuine and fun-loving personality. Her passion for hunting started at a young age and has continued to grow. Melissa is the real deal when it comes to hunting, but her personality is what will bring you back time and time again. She’s having fun doing what she loves, and it shows. This is one girl with a Deadly Passion.
