Melissa Bachman

Melissa Bachman

Melissa Bachman isn’t just another pretty face in camouflage, put in front of the video camera to move the TV ratings needle. Yeah, she’s a good-looking lady, but more than that, she’s a hunter, spending 140 days or more afield every year.

Bachman was raised in a hard-working small-town family that lived for hunting season. She and her family spent countless hours together in their duck and deer blinds in central Minnesota, and so she grew up immersed in the adrenaline and excitement that comes with good hunting.

As an adult, she set her sights on a career in the hunting industry. But Bachman didn’t just settle on one job. She busted her butt to learn three key skills: filming TV, producing TV and hosting TV. She can do it all – a legitimate triple talent: camera woman, producer and on-screen personality.

“Ron Spomer’s skills in capturing just the right words and photographic images have earned him an audience that includes a wide range of hunters, naturalists and just about anyone who enjoys good reading,” said Mike Slake, Leupold’s marketing communications manager. “His love and respect for the outdoors…for hunting…and for conservation shines through in a body of work which includes six books as well as articles in more than 100 magazines. He is well qualified to join the list of distinguished writers who have received the Jack Slack Award.”

Spomer’s early focus on an outdoor writing career stems from a boyhood spent hunting, fishing and trapping in South Dakota. To that end he attended the University of South Dakota, where he received a degree in English, plus a teaching certificate which he says, “was a backup in case I couldn’t make it as a writer.”

After early success (he says, “my first five articles sold, but the next five didn’t”), he taught high school, worked as an information specialist for the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks, and as a photographer for the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks before returning to a full-time career as a freelance writer.
