Lone Star Outdoors Show | Saturday, July 28th

No Comments

We start off by visiting with shark angler Poco Cedillo who made national headlines last week with the 14 ft hammerhead he caught off the Texas coast. Sadly, the fish didn’t survive the attempted release. 400 lbs of fresh meat was donated to the local food bank in Corpus Christi, TX.

Then we discuss the Lone Star Tick with Texas A&M Professor and tick biologist Dr. Maria Esteve-Gasent. This tick can actually cause humans to develop an allergy to red meat! Bad news.

We wrap up the show by checking in with Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Corey Mason. This discussion centers around the Namibia Minister of Environment and Tourism’s recent mandate that American hunters no longer post trophy photos on social media (if the animals were harvested in Namibia). Corey gives us his thoughts on the issue and whether or not the mandate will be adhered to or shot down all together.

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

Lab-grown meat. sounds disgusting, probably is. More importantly, I believe it’s a huge threat to hunting, fishing, and ranching. I discuss concerning the new petri dish meat company Memphis Meats and their outlandish claims.

Next, our old friend Jim Shockey drops in. We discuss wildlife management, his new Hand of Man museum and the recent cougar attack that nearly killed him.

We wrap things up with videographer and storyteller Pierre Pins from Got the Shot Productions.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
233 AM CDT Thu Jul 12 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Low chances for wetting rains will be possible in the Austin area
and east of the I-35 corridor this afternoon but amounts should be
less than a quarter inch. While continued hot and dry conditions
are expected through the next seven days, minimum RH values each
afternoon should stay above critical values, falling into the
upper 20 percent range. With the high pressure, winds should stay
below 15 mph for most locations with occasional gusts to 20 mph
possible during the afternoon. Thus, fire weather concerns should
remain low over the next seven days.

Lone Star Outdoors for Saturday, July 14, 2018

No Comments

This week on Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith, we discuss mental health and red meat with Dr. Georgia Ede MD. Why does our society believe that red meat is responsible for modern day health issues when humans have been eating it since the dawn of time? Dr. Ede breaks down the misconceptions that exist surrounding eating animal protein.
We also spend a couple segments with our friend Greg Pavur who recently had a hospital stay resulting from a crappie fin becoming lodged in the muscle in his leg. How does that even happen? Greg talks about the unfortunate event in detail.
We round out the show by talking bowhunting and broadheads with Elite Archery’s Larry McCoy of Elite Archery and Slick Trick Broadheads.
Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.
