Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
634 AM CDT Fri Jun 29 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Continued hot and dry weather for most of the area through middle
of next week. The high temperatures will allow the relative
humidity to drop below 30% across various parts of the northern
and western sections of the forecast area each afternoon through
the forecast period. Medium-range models are developing a rain
producing system in the Gulf and moving it into Texas. Weather
prediction models (GFS and ECMWF) still do not agree well on what
this system will do once it gets to Texas. One has a significant
rain event and the other only modest rain scenario. They are
slowly coming into better agreement every new run, but are still
far apart. We have sided with the lower (GFS) rain chances for
now.

Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith for Saturday, June 23, 2018

No Comments

If I am going on an early seasons archery elk hunt, chasing spring turkey or black bear or sitting in a treestand the first week of October, these are the items that will be on my back or in my pack. Obviously, I am loyal to First Lite, but if you prefer another brand, then find something in their lineup that is similar to these 5 pieces from First Lite. I’ve been backpacking a long time and these items are as functional and comfortable as it gets for mild weather.

Next, the Hardcore Carnivore herself Jess Pryles jumps on to talk all things MEAT! A self-made social media persona, respected author and meat ambassador of all kinds, Jess talks about her background and the lack of grilling/smoking/BBQ culture in her home country of Australia. She moved to Texas 8 years ago and has been soaking up the cooking and hunting culture like white bread in BBQ sauce ever since!

We also discuss her dry aging process (see below) and the differences between dry aging beef vs venison. Also, get ready for a duck fat based caramel flavor explosion like you’ve never experienced! Good things with as big a meat fanatic as you’ll find.

Then our old friend Trent Gilley from Overstocks and Bargains drops in to talk cerakoting firearms, bulk ammunition buys, gun safes and a few specials that Overstocks and Bargains are offering to Lone Star Outdoor Show listeners. (Where else are you going to find 100 rds of 9mm ammo for twenty bucks?)

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