VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR JASON HART, NATIONAL WILD TURKEY FEDERATION FOUNDATION BOARD MEMBER AND CO-FOUNDER AND GENERAL MANAGER OF NOMAD OUTDOOR, AND TO CONGRATULATE HIM FOR ACHIEVING THE EXTRAORDINARY MILESTONE OF THE U. S. SUPER SLAM.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are pleased to learn that Jason Hart of Summerville in Berkeley County has completed the Mt. Everest of National Wild Turkey Federation-recognized slams, the U.S. Super Slam, which involves tagging a wild turkey in each of the forty-nine states that have wild turkeys; and
Whereas, in 2013, he experienced the devastating loss of one of his best friends, when hunting companion James Guthrie suddenly passed away at a young age. The young men had grown up together in the hunting industry, and along with many other wild adventures, they had hunted turkey together in many states; and
Whereas, the death of Jason Hart's friend caused him to consider the brevity of life, and he determined not to waste precious time but to be active in the pursuit of his lifelong goal of the U. S. Super Slam, an early bucket list; and
Whereas, wild turkey can be found in every state except Alaska, and for six years he continued to add states where he had previously never harvested a wild turkey; and
Whereas, in 2019, the State of Mississippi still eluded his prowess until the Haas family asked him to complete his goal in West Point, Mississippi, near the town where their father had founded the iconic Mossy Oak brand in 1986; and
Whereas, after two hard days of hunting Mississippi longbeards at Mossy Oak, Jason Hart pulled the trigger using Guthrie's turkey gun to complete the U. S. Super Slam, successfully chasing America's greatest game bird in every state where they can be found; and
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to honor this son of South Carolina and his outstanding sporting accomplishment of completing the U. S. Super Slam, and the members wish him continued enjoyment in the hunt. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor Jason Hart, National Wild Turkey Federation Foundation board member and co-founder and general manager of Nomad Outdoor, and congratulate him for achieving the extraordinary milestone of the U. S. Super Slam.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Jason Hart.
