MINNETONKA, MN; (January 8, 2016) — Season five of Winchester Deadly Passion with host Melissa Bachman returns to Sportsman Channel Sundays at 11:30 a.m. ET with a combo antelope – mule deer hunt in Colorado. This early season outing has Bachman bowhunting for antelope and velvety muleys – and even with the pre-rut bachelors running together, this spot and stalk challenges her. Tune in for great footage of big buck muleys on Winchester Deadly Passion, on Sportsman Channel Sunday, January 10 at 11:30 a.m. ET.

“Over the years I’m always trying to figure out what hunt is best during what time of year. Late August and early September is a tough time, but I’ve discovered big, velvety mule deer and I’m going after them with Joey Menegatti of Story Creek Outfitters,” said Bachman.

Bachman and Menegatti begin their hunt over a watering hole for antelope. But sitting in a hot blind for 12 hours can test any hunter’s patience. “For some reason, the antelope weren’t even coming in to the watering hole. You need great patience and be mentally tough to sit in a hot blind for this long,” stated Bachman. So the crew switches gears to something more physical – spot and stalking muleys.

Even spot and stalking isn’t a guaranteed way to get a buck as Bachman and Menegatti find themselves within arm’s reach of one opportunity after another. “Viewers I think will appreciate the effort that goes into a spot and stalk bowhunt this early in the season – you have to be patience as maybe one in seven stalks actually works,” concluded Bachman.
