“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.
