Troy Ruiz Inducted into Mississippi Outdoor Hall of Fame
Decades of Work and Education in the Hunting Community Recognized
MADISON, Miss. – July 20, 2022 – Troy Ruiz, former host on The Truth About Hunting, was recently inducted into the Mississippi Outdoor Hall of Fame for his decades of work positively impacting the outdoor and hunting community in Mississippi and beyond. Remarks from Ruiz’ long-time friend and founder of Primos Hunting, Will Primos, were read at the ceremony.
“From the first time I met Troy, it was obvious he was passionate about the outdoors and would be going places,” Primos said. “No one works harder, anticipates better and can call better than Troy Ruiz! He can do it all with just his natural voice!”
Ruiz is best known for his career as a host on Primos Hunting’s The Truth About Hunting TV program. At the early age of nine, the deer hunting bug hit him, and Troy began taking pictures and video to share his experiences with friends and family. Troy’s love for the outdoors and sharing it with others motivated him throughout his career.
“Troy, you of all the people in the hunting world deserve this honor,” Primos said. “As far as that goes, you are not only a hall of famer in Mississippi, but you qualify for being a hall of famer in Canada, Africa, Alaska, Montana, New Mexico, California, Alabama, definitely Louisiana and every place in between.”
During the award presentation, Ruiz was joined by his wife, Belinda, and daughter, Shanna.
The mission of the Mississippi Wildlife Heritage Foundation, the nonprofit organization that organizes the museum, is to preserve the history, heritage and traditions of hunting, fishing and the great outdoors in Mississippi. To honor the people who have been a part of it and to educate the public on the vast natural resources of the great state of Mississippi. The museum chronicles the evolution of hunting and fishing in the state as well as the outdoor photographers and artists who have portrayed it.
