Lee & Tiffany Lakosky

Lee & Tiffany Lakosky


A love for the land. A love for the hunt. And a love for each other.

Crush with Lee & Tiffany brings you inside the Lakosky’s home, trav­els and hearts for a fun jour­ney behind the guts and glo­ry of the out­door industry.

As the pop­u­lar TV hosts of Out­door Channel’s top-rat­ed, award-win­ning Crush with Lee & Tiffany, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky have blazed a trail with­in the out­door indus­try prov­ing that hard work, per­se­ver­ance, ded­i­ca­tion and skill can accom­plish any­thing. Togeth­er with their chil­dren, Cameron Lee Lakosky and Ray­gen Joan Lakosky, their Labrador Retriev­ers, Tanker & Mat­tie May and a revolv­ing ros­ter of fam­i­ly and friends, the duo have fig­ured out the for­mu­la for crush­ing some of the biggest game there is.

It all began with love at first “shot”. As an air­line atten­dant, Tiffany got to see the world, but longed to take her love of the out­doors to the next lev­el. When she want­ed to try archery, she turned to Lee, who was fol­low­ing his pas­sion and work­ing at an archery shop as well as pur­su­ing a career as a chem­i­cal engi­neer. As it turns out, Tiffany was a nat­ur­al with a bow, which prompt­ed Lee to com­bine his two pur­suits and after get­ting mar­ried in 2003, they moved to Iowa to begin their land man­age­ment and white­tail dreams.

If luck is a com­bi­na­tion of hard work and oppor­tu­ni­ty, then Lee and Tiffany have found it. Through blood, sweat and tears they worked day and night to estab­lish their farms and strict white­tail man­age­ment pro­gram. “Let them go, Let them grow” is a phrase they have learned to live by and is quick­ly becom­ing a house­hold hunt­ing term. As Lee believes: “To get a great buck, you have to pass on a real­ly good buck. It’s not about the size of a buck’s rack, but rather the age of the deer when it comes to man­ag­ing your herd.” When record-break­ing bucks start­ed falling, you could hear Tiffany’s cel­e­bra­to­ry “Yeeesss!” from across the farm, and the hunt­ing indus­try took notice. Lee and Tiffany host­ed a real­i­ty based hunt­ing show called Get­tin’ Close which was a big hit with view­ers and quick­ly rose to the top of the Out­door Channel’s rat­ings. To stay fresh and cur­rent with the chang­ing tele­vi­sion land­scape, they launched the new series  Crush with Lee & Tiffany in 2008. The con­tent was refor­mat­ted to an even more excit­ing, edgy and fun pro­gram­ming genre that a broad demo­graph­ic can enjoy, and one that spon­sors find fit­ting for their brand.

Whether you watch them on Crush, or have the good for­tune of attend­ing one of their events and meet­ing them in per­son, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky not only cap­ture some of the best game, but the hearts of all gen­er­a­tions. They’re the real deal, and they’re just get­ting start­ed. Stay tuned!
