Minnetonka, MN –-( In the season finale of Winchester Deadly Passion, host Melissa Bachman travels to her favorite whitetail spot, southern Illinois, for a late season slug gun hunt.

Last time she was here, she took home a 202 inch buck. Will the monster bucks come out again for her?

Tune in Winchester Deadly Passion on the Pursuit Channel; Tuesdays at 6:30 am, Wednesdays at 1:30 pm and Sundays at 7:30 pm ET. Catch a preview of the show here.

“Like any deer hunter, I love to hunt big bucks,” said Bachman. “It’s a rush to see a giant come your way. But there’s a lot of time that needs to be invested before that deer can cross your path.” Bachman definitely puts in the time to scout, manage food plots and other activities to ensure a successful hunt.

On this particular hunt, Bachman is hunting from the ground, not in a treestand or blind that she’s more familiar.

“The hardest part of hunting from the ground is visibility. I’m trying to pick out a spot that has a little higher advantage,” said Bachman.

She tries rattling, spot and stalk and ground hunting to eventually lure in bucks. But many stay just beyond her gun’s reach for a safe shot. Will she get her prize buck she’s been dreaming of that will be her season closer? Tune in to find out!
