This week on Winchester Deadly Passion, host Melissa Bachman tries her luck in Illinois and Kansas for a spring turkey hunt, then she heads to South Dakota for an early spring snow goose chase with her dad and brother. Tune in Winchester Deadly Passion on the Pursuit Channel on Tuesdays at 6:30 am, Wednesdays at 1:30 pm and Sunday at 7:30 pm ET. Catch a preview of the show here.
Even though Illinois weather offers Melissa nothing but rain and fog, she sits patiently in her ground blind calling in birds until one big tom takes notice of her decoys. After getting him down, she finds out he’s sporting long spurs and a triple beard! Then she’s off to Kansas, where she says she’s had some of the best turkey hunting in her life. But the poor weather seems to have followed her – as well as predators! Both a bobcat and coyote bound through her decoys, scaring off any bird in the area. Will Lady Luck shine on Melissa to get her bird?
Finally, she travels to South Dakota with her dad and brother for a family snow goose hunt. After knocking on doors for permission, the group sets up their decoys and don’t wait long for the goose show to begin. “There were literally thousands of geese around these fields; the noise was almost deafening,” said Melissa. “I’ve never seen anything like it before!”
In this week’s Can-Am Tip of the Week, Melissa shares how she uses her Cuddeback camera year ‘round by using it during turkey hunts. Since the camera only goes off when it senses action, the battery life lasts longer than a typical video camera, which can allow it to be used practically all turkey season. She recommends placing it about knee to mid-thigh high amongst the decoys to catch some very cool turkey struttin’ action.
Tune in to see all the spring bird action this week on Pursuit Channel. Winchester Deadly Passion is sponsored by: Can-Am BRP, Easton, Mathews, Rage, Smith & Wesson, Swarovski Optik, Wildlife Research Center and Winchester.
