MINNETONKA, MN; (Ammoland.Com) — Ask anyone where is the best place to find black bears and most will say “Alaska,” which is why Melissa Bachman of Winchester Deadly Passion is back for a fourth time…except this journey is with her best hunting buddy – her dad. Tune in for an all-new episode of Winchester Deadly Passion on Sportsman Channel Sundays at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Watch a sneak peek at  

“My mom and dad brought us up to Alaska halibut fishing when my brother and I were little – so I was happy to return the favor. We are hunting on Prince of Wales Island where I don’t think the bears can get any bigger!” said Bachman, host.

The crew head out for the first spot and stalk with Melissa’s dad, Dale, up first. After belly crawling to a big boar foraging on a grass flat, Dale has his sights set in – except the bear lies down! With the tide about ready to leave their boat high and dry, they need this bear to get up for a good, clean shot.

Melissa was up next for her hunt and the her guide, Jason Boyer, brought her to where she found her very first bear all those year’s ago. This time they came up empty-handed, but it was Friday, the 13th after all. Not one to readily give in, Melissa and crew headed out to that same location the following day and were rewarded with a big bruin in the clearing! Tune in to see what happens next and how big Melissa’s bear truly is on this exclusive episode airing on Sportsman Channel.

“Hunting with friends and family is more important than the species or location. But I certainly hit a trifecta with this trip to have my dad – and my hunting partner, Porkchop, with me. You’ll see more of her on future episodes of Winchester Deadly Passion – we have a great season lined up!” exclaimed Bachman.

@Allan, guessing you get all of your meat at the grocery store where no animals are

Alguna vez,se tendría que instalar una veda de cinco(5)años,hasta que la población de determinadas especies salga de la línea roja de extinción.Así se debería hacer con todas las especies del planetas donde habitaran,esta es la forma de balancear la supervivencia animal en la tierra

Allan M.

7 billion people on the planet, and 6 billion of them scumbags, and you’re killing one of twenty thousand bears? Your priorities are screwed up..

Wild Bill

@Allan M, So by your own numbers there is a six to one chance that you are a scumbag.

@Allan M, Perhaps if you would bath in the sacred waters of Lake Minnetonnka, you would get your head right.

Heed the Call-up

Allan, you are welcome to be one that sacrifices him/herself for Mankind. Please, just do not use a firearm, we don’t need another statistic.

@Allan M, how do you know there are only 20,000 bears.
