Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith

I start off by sharing the of catching this 10 lb bass. All my life, I’ve wanted to join the double digit club. Some people fish their entire lives and never do. So to catch this big girl was something of a dream come true. And where I caught her will surprise a bunch of folks.

10.23 lbs!

Next, we check in with lifelong houndsman Joe Braman of South Texas. Whether it be bobcats or mountain lion, Joe Braman is known as the best houndsman in Texas. Recently he was approached by conservationist Ivan Carter about training his hounds to help catch rhino poachers in Africa. Joe responded by taking the next 15 months to train up over 100 hounds to aid in the effort. He talks about that training process and how he was able to make these friendly dogs aggressive enough to engage a human target.

Then we discuss the latest and greatest hog hunting technology from All Seasons Feeders with 2nd generation owner Zach Gates. The new ‘Lil Squealer’ hog light comes in at a $59 price point and is going to be a game changer for the working man.

We’ll see you Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.

This week on Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith

We kick things off by checking in with Texas Game Warden Captain Josh Koenig. Captain Koenig recently headed up a multi-year sting operation focused on Houston Texas’ black market for game fish. His unit posed as fish merchants and tried to sell illegal fish to various seafood restaurants throughout the Houston area. What they uncovered is simply mind-blowing. Nearly 50% of restaurants were willing to purchase fish illegally! This is a huge issue from both a conservation standpoint and health risk concern for the consumer.


Then we head to South Africa and discuss hunting the “Black Death” with our friend and Professional Hunter Carl Van Zyl of John X Safaris. Cape Buffalo kill numerous hunters and guides every year. Carl talks about the severity of a cape buffalo hunt and how he has managed to keep himself and his clients safe over the years. Few animals hold such a revered place among hunters as the Cape Buffalo- affectionately called Black Death for a reason.  I was able to tag along on my friend Glynn Underwood’s buffalo hunt last summer.


Next, we discuss offseason whitetail habitat improvements and spring/summer food plots with our old friend Dr. James Kroll – AKA ‘Dr. Deer’. We dive into prescribed burns, roller chopping, what plants work best in both northern and southern climates and much more!

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