Something Wicked This Way Comes

by Capt. Kevin Faver, Capt. Kirk Waltz, and Jeff Lageman

Yep, Hurricane Irma is making her way to the First Coast, and there really wasn’t any way to avoid talking about it.  But, as you’ve come to expect, it was all about the stories during this episode of the Outdoors Show.  Stories about storms of the past, the incredible fishing the guys experienced this week, the anticipation of bow season, and lots of great prep tips from our audience.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for great stuff all week…and be sure to send us your own great pics, stories, and questions.  We’d love to hear from you!


Check out for a bunch of must-have tips for taking care of your boat and getting it ready for any kind of tropical storm.  Hopefully, you’ve got your boat ready for Irma already, but you should definitely double-check their list to make sure you’ve covered all your bases…so you can get back on the water as soon as possible.  Check out that list HERE




The guys wanted to share with you.  The site’s designers have created a top-quality application that clearly displays meteorological data from around the world and allows you to monitor weather development for any place on earth.  According to the designers, the Earth’s weather functions as an interdependent system. For example, a hurricane in the Atlantic has the ability to influence the distribution of pressure formations in Europe. Occasionally, it may even make its way to Europe itself as a post-tropical storm. The Ventusky application allows for the illustration of the interdependence of the entire system, displaying the development of pressure, wind, cloud cover, precipitation, and temperature on the map.  It’s really easy to use, and you can see the Jacksonville information HERE


It’s BBQ Time!

With Irma bearing down, we can all pretty much bet that the power’s going to go out.  Thank Heaven for a grill!  Now is the time to clean out the freezer and cook those burgers, venison, sausage and more.  And by the way, with deer season on top of us, lets call it wishful thinking…you’ll want to have some room in the fridge and the deep freeze for some venison, right?
