Lee & Tiffany Lakosky
Crush Together with their two labs, support from their family and friends such as Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and _Jeff Foxworthy, Lee & Tiffany have figured out the formula to crushing some of the biggest and best 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!
Miss Battle Born I shoot 3 gun. I travel all over the country and represent my awesome sponsors at shotgun and multi gun matches. This year (2014) I qualified for and am on the televised 3 Gun Nation Pro Series. I began my 3 gun journey in the summer of 2013 and you’ll find most of it chronicled on this page. I’m always happy to answer questions and share info so don’t hesitate to ask!
Some of you know me as MissBattleBorn which is a nod to the “Battle Born” state I lived in when I started this page – Nevada.
Besides competitive shooting, I’m a gun lover in general! I own, shoot, collect, maintain, modify, and cuddle my firearms I’m an NRA certified instructor and enjoy teaching people – especially women – the basics of shooting. I carry a gun every single day and am a strong supporter of our 2nd amendment rights.
I love my country and support our military!
Ladies, you CAN shoot and you can shoot well! Through my page I’ve been able to encourage other women to get shoot and discover that they actually enjoy it. That’s very rewarding! Women shooters are on the rise and I love hearing from other females who are out there competing and enjoying their guns.
I’m always happy to answer questions, especially those about getting started in 3 gun. However, please be very patient with me if you send an email. I get a ton of them and I do try to answer everything but sometimes it takes awhile.

Shawn Michaels is Co-Host of MRA Hunting – Shawn Michaels MacMillan River Adventures. The only thing that rivals Michaels’ passion for performing is the love of his Family, Faith and the Great Outdoors. Michaels has often told people that his first encounter with Almighty God took place in a deer blind. It was this encounter that would transform his life and the lives of his family forever. With the decision to home school their children, the love of God, family and country would be the hallmark of the outdoor lifestyle Shawn and Rebecca would adopt for their family. Shawn and Rebecca met Keith Mark and his wife Jeanne at the 2010 SHOT Show and the two quickly realized it was more than just “coincidence.” Two families with the same “core” value system, not just in talk, but in practice, quickly formed a friendship that they firmly believe will stand the test of time. It was this bond that led Shawn and Keith to bring MacMillan River Adventures back to Outdoor Channel. The two outdoorsmen make no bones about their agenda; they are going to promote their love of God…their family…and the great outdoors – each one in their own riches and glory.
