What do you think of this gal?  Just caught an episode of North American Hunter featuring her.  Guess she's from St. Cloud, MN.

Melissa Bachman Forced Off Nat Geo’s ‘Ultimate Survivor Alaska’ by Anti-Hunting Activist and Online Petition

Outdoor TV producer and host Melissa Bachman has been forced off the upcoming National Geographic Channel reality series “Ultimate Survivor Alaska,” the cable channel announced on Friday. What’s the reason? Well, it’s because Melissa is a hunter.

The channel said that Ms. Bachman will no longer be a participant in the new series after an online petition started by Tim Martell, a Florida resident, protesting her involvement went viral and it received more than 13,000 signatures in less than 24 hours.

Protests and threatened boycotts are nothing new. But things happen very fast these days, thanks to the instant clout of social media and the fact that corporate executives are quick to surrender to noisy internet rebellions for fear of having the online wrath transferred directly onto them.

After Nat Geo’s decision was announced, the hunting community soon began making its own voice heard.Field & Stream weighed in, pointing out the absurdity of a show dealing with survival in Alaska that somehow doesn’t include hunting.

Melissa grew up hunting with her family in Minnesota. After earning her college degree, she became a producer for the “North American Hunter” program. She has traveled the world working on hunting shows and spends much of her free time in the field. Some have criticized her for not being a real hunter. This is off-base. She is the real deal and the successful effort to get her off this show was, in a sense, an attack on all who enjoy the sport and understand the significant contribution hunters make toward conservation.

The odds of getting Melissa Bachman back on “Ultimate Survivor Alaska” may not be great and one has to question how much reality could there be in this reality show. Still, we encourage hunters and those in our industry to make their voices heard. Contact the National Geographic Channel at comments@natgeochannel.com and let them know what you think. Why be quiet?

No matter what, we’re very sure that we have not heard the last of Melissa Bachman. Maybe this outburst and preemptive censorship will become the basis for her to play a starring role in a new and far better cable television program.

Met her at Cabelas in Rogers this summer. She gave my daughter a calender with a bunch of still she killed.  Very friendly, and not hard to look at.

Bad decisions make great stories!

 It's real simple, If she can back that (or any other) boat down the ramp, or get it on/off the trailer on her own, she's the real deal.  If not, she's not.

This moment is a paradox, it's the oldest you've ever been as well as the youngest you'll ever be.

So let me get this straight.  In order to even compete in "The Ultimate Survivor Alaska" you can't know of or practice any hunting skills?????

I'd like to know how long someone could survive Alaska without hunting?

I need a skirt like that for fishing with FBO members on Devils Lake. You know who you are and you know you'd love it.

Turns out the yuppie non hunters are going to watch a show about survival in the Alaskan wilderness?

You can have a good looking woman on your show that can handle her own, or instead cater to some non hunting liberals. Show isnt going to make it anyway if that is the way they roll.

She can wear that jean skirt in my boat anytime, however guy I would prefer if you didnt...

You're right!!!  Nobody would watch the show and the ratings would suck if someone actually had survival skills and knew how "not to die" in a survival situation.  Besides, Alaska has cold water and when you mix cold water and girls..............that's entertainment!!!!

Wonderful Reagan quote that says it like it is! "It isn't that Liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so much that isn't so."

I emailed those nutjobs and everyone else should also....
"Dissappointed to say the least. It doesnt take much searching to realize that hunters are one of the MAIN supporters of some of the worlds last large game preserves. HUNTERS are the original conservationists. Bowing to extremist right wing wackos was a big mistake and should be reconsidered."

They could always shackle her to Bob Costas, that would likely handicap her a bit.
