There will be a low chance for light rain showers across most areas Friday night into Saturday, but rainfall amounts will remain low. Below normal temperatures are expected across most areas on Friday and Saturday due to increased cloudiness and light rain. Otherwise, fair weather and near normal temperatures are expected for the remainder of the weekend into next week.

We start off by talking big bucks and coyote bounties with Clayton Leverett of the Stillwaters Ranch in Llano, TX. I had the pleasure of whitetail hunting out there last week but more importantly I was educated on running a snare line for predators. Llano County even offers $80 per coyote.
Then we visit with TPWD non game and fur bearing program leader Jonah Evans. There is a school of thought out there that claims the harder coyotes are pressured by trapping and hunting, the more litters they have and faster they reproduce.

Next we discuss how a major warming trend affects the bass bite during cold weather months. Our old pal Cody Roberson of Army Bass Anglers breaks it down for us.


We wrap things up by checking in with Horizon Firearms President Derrick Ratliff. He talks about the most popular rifle builds of 2016 from a caliber standpoint. We also dive into the advantages of a custom rifle stock verses a factory one.

Join us Saturday Morning at 8, for Lone Star Outdoor Show with Cable Smith, on Texas Thunder Radio.

Born March 1, 1996 and raised in La Porte, Texas, country singer Jake Worthington had a true country kid childhood, developing a love of fishing, mudding, and four-wheeling, and of course, sports, which in turn led him to music after he broke his back playing football. While laid up from the injury, Worthington discovered his passion for music, particularly for traditional and neo-traditional country, and blessed with the perfect, tuneful Texas drawl of a singing voice, he set about building a professional career. After not making it out of the blind audition for season five of the reality talent show The Voice in 2013, Worthington returned to audition for season six in 2014, this time making the cut, ending up on Blake Shelton‘s team and placing second by the show’s finale, slipping in traditional country songs by Keith Whitley, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, and others along the way. Earning a fervent fan base through his exposure on The Voice, he returned home to Texas, still only 18 years old, to officially graduate from high school. A debut digital download single, “Heaven,” was released in May of 2014. In the coming year, Worthington signed on with W3 Entertainment and, in late 2015, issued his self-titled debut EP, which continued to play to his old-school traditional country image. Success from the TV show has led to a Social Media presence that reaches nearly 250,000 total people across the world; resulting in numerous YouTube videos with over 1 Million views each.

TTRMS Debut Performance: 2017

Top Songs: “How Do You Honkytonk” “Just Keep Falling In Love” “A Lot Of Room To Talk”


Moderate to Very High Fire Danger Today Across All of South Central Texas.

…Red Flag Warning in Effect from 11 AM to 4 PM Today for Parts of the Rio Grande Plains…

Area of Concern:

Red Flag Warning: South and west of a line from Del Rio to Hondo to Dilley
Elevated to Near Critical Fire Weather Concerns: The rest of South Central Texas
Threats & Impacts:

Wind: Northwest wind 10-20 mph with gusts to 25 mph developing by late morning before becoming more northerly in the afternoon with winds weakening by late afternoon.

Humidity: Minimum relative humidity values 15-20% along and west of Highway 281 and 20-30% east of Highway 281.

Impacts: Fires that develop in cured grasses will likely spread rapidly with substantial resistance to wildland fire control efforts possible, particularly in the Rio Grande Plains. Outdoor burning is not recommended.

Timing and Overview:

Low relative humidity values and gusty north to northwest winds behind a dry cold front will produce locally critical fire weather conditions across parts of the Rio Grande Plains south and west of a Del Rio to Hondo to Dilley line with elevated to near critical fire weather conditions for the rest of South Central Texas. These conditions will combine with rapidly decreasing fuel moisture values after a week of highs ranging from the mid 70s to lower 90s each day to lead to a high to very high forecast fire danger by TFS over the Rio Grande Plains with moderate to high forecast fire danger over the rest of South Central Texas. Rapid fire growth and spread will likely occur in cured fuels that ignite (e.g., dry grasses). Relative humidity values will fall below 20 percent by late morning with northwest 10-20 mph winds gusting to 25 mph over the Rio Grande Plains. These relative humidity values will remain below 20 percent until sunset, but winds should decrease enough to help decrease fire spread concerns by 4 pm this afternoon.

Forecast Relative Humidity and Fire Danger: High

Forecast Wind Speeds: Moderate
