Winchester Deadly Passion: Melissa's First Caribou

Even globe-trotting hunters like Melissa Bachman get first-time adventures ... and this one's epic.

posted on May 3, 2022

You don't have to be new to hunting to be new to a particular adventure, but it certainly does bring back the freshness and excitement of the experience, as this episode of Winchester Deadly Passion proves. NRA Women columnist and globe-trotting huntress Melissa Bachman has been steeped in the world of guns and hunting all her life ... but she's never had the chance to chase woodland caribou before. In fact, she's never hunted caribou, period! 

In "Winchester Spike Camp," Melissa travels to the wilds of British Columbia, Canada, in search of the critter you may know better as a reindeer. (If you didn't know that the main difference between reindeer and caribou is that caribou are wild and reindeer domestic, now you do.) This isn't to be any ordinary deer hunt, though; to get as far North as she needs to be, she's going to need planes, boats and automobiles. 

Thrill along with Melissa on this all-new hunting adventure. If you haven't had the chance to do so, be sure to check out previous episodes of Winchester Deadly Passion too!
