Tiffany Lakosky offers advice on making women feel at home on a hunt
It’s a question Tiffany Lakosky gets on a regular basis: “How do I get my wife/girlfriend to hunt?”
That comes from the men hunters who have watched Lee and Tiffany Lakosky become one of the country’s top hunting teams, never mind they are married to each other.
Women are the fastest growing segment of the hunting world, due to no small measure of the line-up of husband/wife hunting teams on Outdoor Channel. The growth in numbers produces a lot of questions on just what to expect when a woman takes to the woods.
“I always answer that question with a question,’’ Tiffany Lakosky said. “I’ll look at the wife and ask, ‘Do you want to hunt?’ Most of the time it is ‘yes,’ but then some of them are like ‘yeah.’ I ask ‘do you have kids?’
And answer ‘four under the age of five.’ I'm like well she’s probably not going to be hunting right now unless you can set up a babysitter.
“If you really want her out there, set up a babysitter so she can get out there and experience that with you. I can promise you, if you’ve got four kids at home you’re going to probably want to go out there and sit and enjoy the silence and the peace and quiet.”
