Just read that PH Jason Bridger of Tholo Safaris was electrocuted while building his new house and has passed away. I did not know him other than be reputation, as he was certainly well liked and respected in the hunting community.

He leaves behind a wife and young children.

Rest in Peace

That is so sad. I had hoped to hunt with him sometime. He will be missed by many. My condolences to the family.

My deepest condolences to the whole family Claire.
Absolutely heart wrenching loss. I can not even fathom....

This good man has left behind a wife, his girls and his young son.


A couple of good things and memories we shared

I only knew him from some time spent together at DSC.

Condolences and prayers for his family.

Tragic news, I hunted in Jason's camp twice and got to know him and Claire pretty well. His youngest James was just getting old enough (around four or so) to really learn the important things in life from his father. He was a good man and will be truly missed. RIP.

Sorry to hear about his accident. It's a heartbreaker, that another wife and child will be without him. Best wishes to them.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
