Jeff Thomason was born and raised in Northeast Texas, where he developed a love for all types of hunting. He has hunted many types of game, ranging from whitetail deer in Texas to the plains game of Africa. But his greatest love in the outdoors is predator hunting. In the beginning, Jeff had no idea that his love for predator hunting would lead him down the road to filming and producing his own television show; Predator Pursuit sets itself apart from others as Jeff chases all things predator across the world; from coyotes, bears, to gators. Jeff has been very fortunate to travel the world and share hunting camps with some of the greatest people on earth chasing dangerous game and leaving audiences on the edge of their seats week in and week out.

NEW BERLIN, WI (February 5, 2015) – In the summer of 2014 off the coast of California, Jeff Thomason of Predator Pursuit crushed the world record for arrowing a mako shark – and he filmed the entire event. On Saturday, February 7 at 1 p.m. ET, Sportsman Channel offers Part One of an exclusive two-part series look at the process of arrowing the 800-pound mako shark – and then reeling it in. Part Two – and the thrilling conclusion – resumes on February 14 at 1 p.m. ET exclusively on Sportsman Channel.
“I couldn’t believe it when we were reeling this behemoth to the boat,” said Thomason. “He’s nearly 300 pounds larger than the previous record holder.”
The shark was 11 feet long and weighed 809.5 pounds. Thomason shot it with a bow and arrow attached to fishing gear. He was approximately 40 miles off the coast of California fishing with Captain “Mako” Matt, who also helped reel in the previous record holder’s shark. The meat was all donated to a local homeless shelter, according to Thomason. The previous record holder reeled in a 544-pound shark in June 2014.
The Bowfishing Association of America has verified the record.
An article with behind-the-scenes photos from the event is available in Petersen’s BOWHUNTING January/February issue and online, read here.
