We will be keeping our eye on the potential for some locally heavy rain Saturday afternoon and night. At this time, the majority of computer model guidance suggests the higher rainfall amounts will mostly be confined offshore. However, those that live generally along and south of the Interstate 10 corridor should keep up with the latest forecasts. Just minor forecast changes could shift this axis further inland.

Then we are joined by Tyler Toney of DUDE PERFECT. The guys are currently filming for season 2 of their hit show. You probably know them as the kings of the Trick Shot and funny guy humor. Their youtube channel has 16 million subscribers and 2.7 billion views! We talk elk hunting, bass fishing and a whole lot more.

We wrap up the broadcast by talking all things turkey conservation, restoration and hunting with our Texas Parks and Wildlife Turkey Program Leader- Jason Hardin. We examine a day in the life of these crazy birds in hopes that if understand them, we might be able to put our tag on a mature tom this spring.

We’ll see you Saturday morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio!
