MELISSA BACHMAN BIO
Melissa is one of the most intense and hardcore hunters you will ever meet. Her passion for the outdoors kicked in at an early age while hunting with her family in central Minnesota. Throughout high school, she could be found in a treestand before class and she dreamed of a way to hunt for a living.
After graduating with honors and a double major in TV broadcasting and Spanish from St. Cloud State University, Melissa started her outdoor career as a TV intern. Within a few months, Melissa was offered a full-time position as a producer and traveled the world filming a variety of incredible hunters.
Although this was close to her dream job, Melissa still longed for the day she could be the one squeezing the trigger. In order to achieve this goal, Melissa spent every spare moment filming all of her own hunts. After each successful hunt she would edit the shows together and give the footage away in hopes of gaining exposure. As an avid bowhunter, this took a lot of time and patience, but after taking several nice animals and putting together solid shows, Melissa’s wish was finally granted. Now, 6 years later, Melissa spends more than 150 days in the field both hunting and producing TV. Her triple-threat expertise includes writing, producing and hunting on camera for Winchester’s Deadly Passion.
