We have to admit that we're biased; we here at NRA Women have known for a very long time that Melissa Bachman is a Legend. An accomplished hunter, host of the TV series Winchester Deadly Passion, ambassador for the shooting sports and writer, Bachman's added a new honorific to her list: Recipient of the 2023 "Winchester Legend Award." 

Bachman is a role model for hunters and sport shooters throughout the world. Her ability to share a passion for the outdoors comes through in many forms, including her award-wining television series, “Winchester Deadly Passion.” Bachman also travels the country throughout the year attending trade shows and expos as a featured seminar speaker. She's also a talented writer, whose work here on NRAWomen.com speaks to and welcomes women from all walks of life to the outdoor lifestyle. (Check out her catalogue here!)

“Melissa Bachman is a true professional with an incredible work ethic and we are honored to present her with this recognition. Her contributions in positively promoting hunting, conservation and the shooting sports are immeasurable,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “Melissa has built her own legacy as an iconic name in the outdoor community. She is a valued member of Team Winchester and is always focused on how to attract more individuals to outdoor activities.”

The "Winchester Legend Award" recognizes individuals and organizations that have made a positive impact in the hunting and shooting sports community, while also representing the Winchester brand at the highest level. Melissa Bachman has been a member of Team Winchester for 13 years during which she has solidified her legacy as a true Winchester Legend. From all of us, congratulations!
