Red Stag for Mom on Winchester Deadly Passion on Sportsman Channel

MINNETONKA, MN — Hunting ‘dream team’ of Melissa Bachman and her mom, Karen Bachman, are back at it again with a challenging adventure in Spain on this week’s Winchester Deadly Passion. Melissa is searching for an ibex – her first – and Karen is after fallow deer and red stag. Tune in for an all-new episode of Winchester Deadly Passion on Sportsman Channel Sundays at 11:30 a.m. ET.

The Bachmans worked with ATP Hunts out of Spain, and their guide, Andres Torrico Pena. It was tough terrain and cold weather, but Melissa and Karen kept their positive attitude and it paid off – for both of them.

After Melissa connected on a monster ibex, it was Karen’s turn to hunt both fallow deer and red stag. Even though the effort was there, the hunting was very difficult. They were both very spooky and stalking inside 200-yards was proving to be very challenging. “We would wait for them to walk out of a covered area, and they would just run to another treed area – and then they would be too far,” explained Karen Bachman.

Karen was determined to stay persistent and was hoping to eventually connect. “Growing up in central Minnesota, we have always hunted whitetails, so getting the chance to pursue red stag and fallow deer is an awesome experience,” said Melissa.
