This week on Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith

We start things off by discussing the 100% Carnivore Diet with Dr. Shawn Baker. At 51 years young, Dr. Baker is as chiseled as it gets. He is healthier than he’s ever been and he’s done by eating nothing but steak for 14 months! That’s right a 100% animal protein diet. No fruits, no veggies, no carbs. We discuss the Carnivore Movement that seems to be healing people with all kinds of health ailments. What, if any are the negative side effects of the Carnivore Diet? Does this diet only work for people who are into training or working out regularly? Also, where does wild game fit vs domestically raised animal protein? Dr. Baker gives us his take.

Then we sit down with Backcountry Hunters and Anglers Board Chairman Ryan Busse. We dive into BHA’s grassroots structure and how that approach is translating into the fastest growing public lands conservation group in North America. Also, how does Ryan and BHA feel the Trump Administration has done thus far in representing the interests of sportsmen and women – specifically the proposed 90% cut to the Land and Water Conservation Fund.  We also lighten things up a bit by talking upland hunting, classic shotguns, and good working dogs.

Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.

Multiple rounds of rain with isolated strong thunderstorms and locally heavy rainfall possible today through Wednesday

No Comments

Area of Concern:
Today: East of US Highway 83.

Tonight/Wednesday: North of Interstate 10.

Threats & Impacts:

Today:
Strong Storms: Isolated strong storms may produce up to 1/2 inch hail and wind gusts up to 40 mph.
Rainfall: Local pockets of 1 to 2 inches possible east of US Highway 83. Isolated minor flooding possible.

Tonight/Wednesday:
Rainfall: Widespread 1 to 2 inch amounts, with isolated totals over 4 inches possible north of
I-10. This will likely saturate soils and produce localized flash flooding in normally flood prone areas.
Strong Storms: Isolated strong storms may produce up to 1/2 inch hail and wind gusts up to 40 mph.

Impacts: Today the main threats will be from strong storms causing small hail, gusty winds, and local pockets of heavy rains. Storms should be moving fast enough that only minor flooding is expected from local pockets of 1 to 2 inches of rain. Tonight into Wednesday, isolated totals of up to 4 inches may cause minor flooding with flood waters capable of causing small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches to become swollen and overflow in a few places, but with little to no property damage. Quick ponding of water will occur at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Storm drains and retention ponds will become near-full and begin to overflow in a few places. Flood waters may prompt brief road closures.

Timing and Overview:

A series of upper level impulses will bring repeated rounds of showers and thunderstorms today through Wednesday. Threats for strong storms and heavy rain should be east of US Highway 83 today and north of Interstate 10 tonight into Wednesday. The time of greatest threat will be overnight into Wednesday when a cold front moves across our area.

Confidence:

Heavy rain potential: High
Hail and high winds: Low

It’s all about our trapline trip to British Columbia. Wolves, Lynx, Wolverine, Marten, Fishers and more! We dive deep into the time-honored tradition of trapping with longtime trapper Jack Hooper of Babine Lake, B.C.

Jack walks us through how to set various traps and snares for different species. Most importantly, we talk about the vital role trapping plays in ensuring the health of ungulate herds of moose, deer, elk, etc.

Join us Saturday morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.
