About the Author
Melissa Bachman is one of the most intense and hardcore hunters you will ever meet. Her passion for the outdoors kicked in at an early age while hunting with her family. After graduating with honors and a double major in TV broadcasting and Spanish from St Cloud State University, Melissa started her outdoor career as a TV intern.
Now as a producer and co-host Melissa spends over 150-days in the field both hunting and producing TV. Melissa’s triple threat expertise includes filming, editing and hunting on camera for She’s Beyond the Lodge, Mathews TV, & Whitetail Country. Melissa has been lucky enough to take a 202-inch whitetail with her bow in Illinois along with a 174 with her muzzleloader.
Melissa has taken two 7-foot bears on the ground spot and stalk hunting with her bow, six whitetails over 150, two elk over 330 and numerous big mule deer. Melissa also has a soft spot for gator hunting…and those big Illinois whitetails.
