.DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms may develop along the seabreeze and move
into the southeastern part of our forecast area each afternoon
today through Sunday. Otherwise, the weather will be hot and dry.
The high temperatures will allow relative humidity to drop below
30% this afternoon and Saturday afternoon over the Rio Grande
Plains. Slightly lower temperatures will mean recovery above 30%
for the rest of the forecast period.

Lone Star Outdoors Show for Saturday, June 9, 2018

No Comments

We discuss the history of the Asian Grass Carp in America. This very common species was introduced back in the 1970s and can now be found in 45 states.  Texas Parks and Wildlife biologist Marco De Jesus joins the discussion to provide insight on how Texas Parks and Wildlife is still using sterile grass carp to help control aquatic vegetation outbreaks today.

Then we spend a couple segments talking Montana bear hunting. I recently returned from a trip to Big Sky Country with my friend and Montana native Luke Sterling. We reflect on that hunt and also discuss public land hunting etiquette.

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