MINNETONKA, MN-Hardcore hunters have a new source for serious entertainment, thanks to North American Media Group's premier season of Winchester Deadly Passion.
Written, produced and hosted by hard-hunting and engaging Melissa Bachman, the 13-week series airs third and fourth quarters on the Pursuit Channel, Sundays at 8 p.m. and Tuesdays 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Eastern.
"Each show leaves you entertained, informed and blown away by the most incredible footage on TV today," says Bachman, whose passion for hunting began at a young age and has blossomed along with her career as a nationally-known hunting personality.
Winchester Deadly Passion takes viewers on heart-pounding adventures around the globe, as Melissa matches wits with record-class New Zealand stags, trophy Midwestern whitetails and monster gators in the Deep South. Viewers also witness an 11-day, self-guided quest for a rare unicorn mule deer, plus adrenaline-packed hunts for species ranging from world-class Alaskan bruins to razor-tusked wild boars.
Through it all, Bachman's never-say-die style of relentless, aggressive pursuit puts fans on the edge of their seats, while her trademark, down-home charm wins their hearts. "Melissa's the real deal when it comes to hunting, but her personality keeps you coming back for more," adds Executive Producer Rick Dow.
