Lee and Tiffany Set to “Crush” National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic

Tiffany Lakosky

Outdoor Channel husband and wife team to demo antler shed hunting from Bird Dog Stage

- January 14 -

Quail Forever is excited to announce Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, hosts of the hit Outdoor Channel show Crush with Lee & Tiffany, will be attending National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic 2014 in Milwaukee. The Lakosky’s, owners of two Labrador retrievers and past National Shed Dog Hunting Champions, will teach attendees how to use their bird dogs to hunt whitetail deer antler sheds. National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic presented by MidwayUSA will take place at downtown Milwaukee’s Wisconsin Center on February 14, 15 & 16, 2014.

“We love our two Labs and enjoy pheasant hunting behind them; however, our first love has always been deer hunting,” explains Lee and Tiffany Lakosky. “Hunting antler sheds with our Labs has allowed us to extend the season during the long winter months, while also allowing us to get a better handle on the type of whitetails we may be able to hunt on our property the following autumn.”

The Lakosky’s will be conducting a seminar at Noon on Saturday, February 15th with Tom Dokken, breeder and trainer of both Lakosky Labs, Tank and Mattie. “Hunting sheds with bird dogs has absolutely exploded in popularity the last few years. It’s a fun way to get your bird dog exercise and keep that pup’s nose sharp. Virtually all the shed dogs I train double as pheasant dogs,” added Dokken, who will speak daily about dog training on the Bird Dog Stage sponsored by Purina and SportDOG.

Lee and Tiffany also plan to sign autographs at Outdoor Channel’s booth (#231/330). The Lakosky’s will be at the booth on Saturday, February 15th from 9:30AM till 11AM.

Lee and Tiffany Lakosky have become two of the hottest outdoor celebrities in the country. Their meteoric rise to fame within the outdoor community is due in part to a combination of their pro-staffer hunting skills, their tireless work ethic and their devotion to their fan base. When they’re not producing compelling outdoor television, the Minneapolis-raised, Iowa-residing couple actively manages their land for trophy whitetails. Viewers of their popular TV series, “Crush with Lee & Tiffany,” can tune in to Outdoor Channel to see more of the Lakosky’s on Sundays at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT, as well as a nightly “Best Of” special that will air at 11:30 p.m. ET/10:30 p.m. CT from January 27th to February 23rd.
