Melissa Bachman may be one of the best-known hunters in the world.  She’s the creator and host of Winchester Deadly Passion.  She writes, edits, and stars in each episode.  Bachman has been hunting since she was a little girl growing up in Minnesota.  After getting a degree in broadcasting, she decided she wanted to earn a living doing what she loves, and that’s hunting.  She started producing her own material and giving it to her network for free.  It eventually evolved into a one-woman business conglomerate.

Bringing Her Story to Idaho

She’s coming to Twin Falls in April.  She’s the keynote speaker at the Rally for Wildlife Banquet and Fundraiser.  On Friday, April 8th, she’s hosting a women-only event.  She then headlines a larger event on Saturday, April 9th.

She's a Great Spokeswoman for Shooting Sports

Bachman has been criticized by some who don’t understand hunting is about game management.  She also donates the meat from her kills to the poor.

She joined us this week on Magic Valley This Morning.  One of my favorite stories was about her alligator hunt.  I asked if she now has alligator shoes.  She doesn’t.  She has a purse.

Here's How You Can Get a Ticket
