Lonestar Outdoors Show Sat-Sun Mar18-19

DSC Lonestar Outdoors Show

With your Host Cable Smith
Tune in to the No Bull Radio Network Saturday mornings from 8-9am
and again Sunday evening from 8-9pm.
Here is a summary of this week’s Lonestar Outdoors Show.
Hun photo Lion2_zps1ovsm9il.jpgting is Conservation. There is no better proof of this fact than the recent news out of Zimbabwe that wildlife officials will be forced to cull 200 lions from one area. Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Ben Carter joins the discussion to explain how exactly a once viable lion population, sustained by hunters and hunting dollars has been basically shut down. With hunters afraid to book lion hunts stemming from the “Cecil the Lion” backlash, the real loser here is the lions themselves. Pat yourselves on the back anti hunters, you’ve accomplished your goal- take away hunting, take away wildlife. Lets hope that science and sound wildlife management win out over this emotionally charged over reaction.
 photo Josh H Bass_zpsqnmlpvxx.jpg
Big Spring, Texas native Josh Helmstetler drops in next to discuss his recent state record catch. This 5.98 lb spotted bass shattered the old mark and helped Josh win the bass club tournament he was fishing that day. Known as an aggressive fish that with alot more fight than their bigger largemouth cousins, the spotted bass is native to many Texas lakes. Josh walks us through the events of that day leading up to his record catch and the ensuing nightmare of getting it weighed on a certified scale.

 photo Mule Deer Relocation 2_zpsze0whdcn.jpgTexas Parks and Wildlife Mule Deer and Pronghorn Program Leader Shawn Gray then makes his return to the broadcast. After heading up the most recent relocation project, we get Shawn’s take on how our mule deer and pronghorn herds are doing on the West Texas landscape. We discuss the most recent relocation efforts for both species and how this efforts will be monitored and studied. (2 of 70 mule deer does being moved to the Black Gap WMA in West Texas).
 photo CareyThorn_zpsoehcykke.jpg
It’s that time of year, the dogwoods are blooming and everything is greening up, so we wrap things up by talking all things sand bass when longtime fishing guide Carey Thorn. Nobody has studied the white bass spawn like Carey and he has them patterned to a science. Carey tells us where to find them as they run up the creeks and rivers. We also pick his brain on line choice, baits for both live and artificial applications and even fly fishing for the big females who lay their eggs and then immediately return to the lake.

Next we are joined by U.S. Army Ranger Dave Hillary and Matt Klentzma- founders of Veterans Xtreme Adventures.

VXA is an amazing non profit and one that I am proud to be a part of.

Chris Kyle Day February 2, 2015


#ChrisKyleDay declared by Gov. Gregg Abbott, Monday, Feb. 2

Feb. 2, is the second anniversary of Chris’ death.

chris-kyleIn December, 2013, TJ Broscoff left widow, Taya Kyle, and an entire audience in tears when he performed “Ghost Behind The Trigger” at a gala event in Las Vegas. The song, written by TJ Broscoff, Billy O’Rourke and Bill Green, is a tribute to Chris Kyle, the legendary Navy Seal sniper. The tragic news about Kyle’s death in February 2013 dominated national news, and a major motion picture based on his extraordinary life is currently one of the biggest box office hits ever, with Clint Eastwood directing and Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller in starring roles.

A Tribute to a Risen Hero – Navy Seal, Chris Kyle, The American Sniper. This song is available at iTunes, Amazon, and many other online retailers. Proceeds from sales benefit the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. We hope you will support this fund which helps support our American troops in need. Thank you for listening and viewing.

Governor Abbott Addresses Texas VFW Convention

Governor Abbott Addresses Texas Veterans of Foreign Affairs (VFW) Convention #ChrisKyleDay

Friday, January 30, 2015  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Governor Abbott Addresses Texas Veterans of Foreign Affairs (VFW) Convention

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott today addressed the Texans Veterans of Foreign Affairs (VFW) Mid-Winter Convention where he outlined his plan to improve infrastructure, job training, educational opportunities and healthcare access for Texas veterans and military families. In honor of fallen Navy SEAL and American hero Chris Kyle, Governor Abbott also announced his intent to officially declare February 2nd Chris Kyle Day in the state of Texas.

“America is the brightest beacon of freedom the world has ever known for one simple reason – because of you – our veterans, the men and women who put service above self,” Governor Abbott said. “As Governor, I will constantly work to find ways to help our veterans. It’s our duty to help those who helped make America so exceptional. And it’s our duty to honor those whose sacrifice has preserved our freedom.”

Governor Abbott’s VFW Speech:

*Gov. Abbott often deviates from prepared remarks.

It’s an honor to be here with all of you who’ve served our country. America is the brightest beacon of freedom the world has ever known for one simple reason – because of you – our veterans, the men and women who put service above self.

My extended family looks a lot like this crowd today – they’ve served in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. My brother Gary served 20 years in the United States Navy and served in the Persian Gulf at the same time as you, Roy. I’ve seen firsthand the sacrifice you and your families have made.

In times of war and in times of peace, heroes among us have stepped forward. You are those heroes. You stood in the face of dangers known and unknown and protected us from threats from around the world. You sacrificed so much, asked for so little in return, other than the freedom you fought do defend. On behalf of all Texans, I want to thank you for your commitment to our country.

Texans have played a powerful role in defending this nation. More than a million have served. Many more have trained and lived on military installations in the Lone Star State. And today, Texas is the proud home to almost two million veterans, active-duty military, Reserve & National Guard and their families.

I am grateful to the Texas VFW for all you do to help those who have served. The support, fellowship and financial assistance you provide for our Texas veterans, for those on active duty and for those who return home broken from battle is critical to ensure our veterans are respected, that their sacrifices are recognized and their return to civilian life is eased.

But there is more we must do. First we must improve your access to healthcare. No veteran who has fought for this country should be denied access to healthcare because of bureaucratic bungling at the Veteran’s Administration. Having served on the frontlines, you should go to the front of the line to get the healthcare you need.

The VA in Washington is falling short of its obligations. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the RGV. Even the President recognizes this. On a trip to the RGV in 2008, Barack Obama said, “We need a VA hospital right here in the Valley.” Veterans shouldn’t have to drive 200 miles for treatment. It’s now 2015 and I’m calling on the President to keep his word. It’s time to build that VA hospital in the Rio Grande Valley. This week – as Governor – I sent a request to the President asking that he fulfill his promise to build that hospital to care for our veterans in the RGV.

The timing couldn’t be better. We’re opening a new medical school and a state-of-the-art hospital at UTRGV. The co-location of a VA hospital at UTRGV would be a force multiplier ensuring that the growing number of veterans in South Texas have access to first rate healthcare.

That first rate care includes mental healthcare. If a veteran or service member asks for help with PTSD, we can’t allow the backlog at the VA to prevent timely care. I am calling on the Texas Legislature to provide mental health screenings to veterans and service members at no cost.

We must also do more to help veterans in the job market. Texas leads the nation in job creation and yet the unemployment rate for our veterans remains high. That is unacceptable.

By lowering financial barriers, we can help Texas veterans create new jobs for yourselves and for others. That’s why I am asking the Texas Legislature to exempt new businesses – formed by veterans – from having to pay registration fees to the state to open their businesses. I’m also recommending that newly formed, veteran-owned businesses be exempt from paying state franchise taxes for the first five years. And I’m asking state licensing agencies to waive licensing exams and fees for veterans with the required education, training and practical experience gained in the military. If the training you received as an electrician, a technician or a lineman meets the standard of the United States Military, it should be good enough for the state of Texas.

As Governor, I will constantly work to find ways like these to help our veterans. It’s our duty to help those who helped make America so exceptional. And it’s our duty to honor those whose sacrifice has preserved our freedom.

Along those lines, I wanted you to be the first to know…In honor of a Texas son, a Navy SEAL and an American hero – a man who defended his brothers and sisters in arms on and off the battlefield – I am declaring February 2nd Chris Kyle Day in Texas. We will commemorate his passing. But more importantly, remembering his answering of the call of duty.

We thank Chris Kyle and all of you for your service and sacrifice. And we rededicate ourselves o a cause greater than ourselves. To freedom for our children, their children and for generations yet to be born. May God bless you and all who wear the uniform of the United States of America.

Thank you.

Lone Star Outdoors Show Dec 5

The Lone Star Outdoors Show is heard

at 9am Saturday and 8pm Sunday

on the No Bull Radio Network

Texas Parks and Wildlife Executive Director Carter Smith makes his return to the show this weekend. If you haven’t heard, TPWD recently acquired the 17,000 acre Powderhorn Ranch- an pristine and diverse stretch of coastline and oak flats along the Texas coast near Matagorda Bay. Carter talks about when the property will open to the public and how the agency raised $50 million dollars to fund the purchase. Designated to be a future WMA (Wildlife Management Area), Carter also discusses the diverse species available to hunters and anglers. This is the most expensive piece of property ever acquired by Texas Parks and Wildlife and it’s prime location makes it a true sportsman’s paradise.

Next, we check in with Ozona whitetail hunter Jeff Trout who recently had a surreal experience while sitting in a ground blind south of Ozona, TX. The 1,500 acre high fence lease has some great whitetails and axis deer on it, but to Jeff’s surprise it was a male mountain lion that busted out of the brush in pursuit of a deer during Thanksgiving week! Jeff breaks down what happened next and how he ended up putting this Texas big cat on the ground! The trail camera photo shows the tom just moments after Jeff’s first bullet grazed his back hip. The second shot found vitals and put the apex predator down for good!

 photo JeffTroutLion-Copy_zpsec1ba6ad.jpg

We then change things up with twin brothers Brent and Brian Jackson drop in with a big buck tale almost too far fetched to believe! Last year, Brent killed a Rusk County, TX free ranging monster with 22 points that grossed over 185 inches! Then, this fall Brian dropped a 22 point Rusk County bruiser of his own, not 7 miles from where Brent shot his buck last fall. What are the odds of two brother knocking down 22 point free ranging bruisers in back to back seasons? I’d probably buy a couple lottery tickets fellas!

We wrap up this week’s broadcast when everybody’s favorite- Captain Len Girard joins us live from Corpus Christi Bay for our Coastal Fishing Report. Flounder and redfish are on fire in addition to good numbers of trout and sheepshead with black drum starting to show up in good numbers as well. Captain Len tells us where to find ‘em and what to catch ‘em on! The results of a recent trip with Captain Len:

Deer Season Opens

Deer Season Opens Nov. 1

Texans still get excited with the approach of deer season, and for hundreds of thousands of hunters, this year Halloween night will be almost like Christmas Eve. The season for whitetail deer and turkey begins at 30 minutes before sunrise Saturday in both the North and South zones. It continues through Jan. 4, 2015 in the 209 counties in the North Zone and until January 18 in the 30-county South Zone. Legal hunting time for the day ends 30 minutes after sunset.

Texas game wardens will be out in force this weekend to make sure that those who head to the field hoping to harvest some fresh meat and maybe a good set of antlers not only obey all applicable laws but also get home safely.

The fastest way to pay more than you anticipated for the privilege to hunt is to head to your blind without a hunting license or not having taken a hunter safety course if you were born after 1971.

For more information visit the No Bull Radio Network. This has been Randy Watson of the No Bull Radio Network for the Eagle Ford Minute.
