Winchester Deadly Passion Concludes Decoy Domination on Sunday 11:30 a.m. ET

MINNETONKA, MN (Ammoland.Com) — Patience and perseverance are two qualities host Melissa Bachman of Winchester Deadly Passion must have as she nears two weeks in the blind trying to decoy in a monster buck in South Dakota. The rut is in full swing on the Rosebud Reservation in south central South Dakota, but Bachman has already spent 91 hours in the blind trying to find her buck. Talk about blind fever! Tune in this week to Winchester Deadly Passion on Sportsman Channel on Sunday, April 24 at 11:30 a.m. ET to see Bachman with bow in hand waiting for the monster buck she knows is out there.

On last week’s show, Bachman figured out the patterns of some mature deer in the wide-open spaces of Rosebud Reservation. And now, she's cancelled her next trip as she has a good feeling about where a giant buck may show. “I’m not sure if blind fever is a real thing, but I’m pretty sure I’m getting it,” explains Bachman as she moves her blind set-up yet again to accommodate deer movement and wind direction. The South Dakota winds cause Bachman more than one headache during this hunt. “If I didn’t have bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all,” concluded Bachman. And while her cameraman absolutely had to leave on the final day, she stuck it out for one more morning with her handheld camera. Will the extra time pay off?

This week’s Memory Chase video is Ryan Widmaier, a 10-year-old from Maryland, hunting whitetails in Kentucky.
