MINNETONKA, MN; (Ammoland.Com) Melissa Bachman says the most difficult and rewarding hunts are spot and stalk.

This week on Winchester Deadly Passion Bachman is looking for mule deer in the Sandhills of Nebraska with her Mathews AVAIL bow and her best hunting friend – her dog Porkchop! Tune in for an all-new episode of Winchester Deadly Passion on Sportsman Channel Sundays at 11:30 a.m. ET.

The wind was blowing hard, but Bachman and her guides, Scott & Jeremy Kuhn from Deer Meadow Outfitters knew if they got to the right place, they could glass for monster muleys.

“Winds can be helpful on a spot and stalk hunt as it can provide noise cover so you can get a little closer – but too much of it is definitely not a good thing – and that’s what we were dealing with in Nebraska,” said Bachman.

The first day Bachman gets within 40 yards of a monster buck, but just as she’s trying to steady her bow due to the winds, the bucks turns 90 degrees and bounds right out of there.

“You never want to rush a shot. You need to set your limit on how far you want to shoot and where you want to shoot. Stick to that plan regardless of how big the buck is – buck fever is a real thing! If you have your plan beforehand, you are more likely to be successful,” concluded Bachman.

Bachman is not one to give up – so as the days start getting cooler and the wind holds steady, she continues to spot and stalk muleys. But they are traveling in bachelor groups and seem to taunt Bachman. Tune in to see if her persistence pays off on this week’s Winchester Deadly Passion exclusively on Sportsman Channel.

Spent many days visiting relatives in the Sandhill country when I was a small boy. The Thedford area.
