Outdoor Television Personalities Shine in Harrisburg

One of the benefits of attending the Great American Outdoor Show is having the opportunity to rub elbows with the stars of outdoor television. Over the course of its nine-day run, the Great American Outdoor Show is hosting approximately 250 seminars and demonstrations, several of which feature the likes of Jim Shockey, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, Michael Waddell and Roland Martin.

Lee and Tiffany Lakosky of the Outdoor Channel’s Crush with Lee & Tiffany did a Q&A session Tuesday afternoon, covering such topics as rut tactics, foul-weather deer hunting, the use of scents when deer hunting, and common hunting mistakes.

But perhaps the most interesting part of the seminar occurred right off the bat, when Lee and Tiffany, both vocal supporters of last year’s boycott of the Harrisburg show, addressed the issue of NRA assuming ownership of the nation’s largest outdoor show. “We missed being here with you last year,” said Lee, “but in the long run I think we’ll be better for it with NRA taking over.”

Before opening the presentation to questions, the couple then asked how many in the audience were attending the show for the first time. At least a quarter of the hands in the 200-person crowd shot up. With a brisk Tuesday crowd following up a jam-packed opening weekend, it is safe to say that, despite the year off, the show isn’t just back, it’s bigger and better than ever.
