Re: IOWA tag just came in mail
I have never hunted with her. I too drew for Zone 5 and got my tag a couple days ago. I don't know if they still work together but Ruby used to be connected with Judd Cooney. Judd used to be in every hunting article about the midwest that was written years ago and I think Ruby actually was the primary outfitter part of the deal. They haven't been in the limelight in years and I've heard little to nothing about them. Not a bad thing. Most outfitters when getting tto be known get taken advantage of by the hunting shows and mag writers for free hunts in exchange for favorable articles. After a few years, especially when they are good they no longer need the publicity as referrals fill their camps each year. Probably the case with Ruby as she no longer needs to cater and kiss the butts of the "celebrities" to get business.
