Plot Synopsis

The Campbell family -- Jerry Campbell, 64; his level-headed son, Robert, 28; and firecracker daughter, Krystal, 23 -- rescues Texas residents and ranches from the devastating chaos caused by millions of invasive wild boars. Each 30-minute episode of this reality series follows these legendary hog hunters on the front lines, riding horseback, driving a custom-rigged Jeep, using highly trained dogs with GPS tracking systems and employing good old-fashioned know-how to help those endangered by these destructive beasts. Half of the wild boar population in America lives on the Texas countryside, and have caused over $50 million per year in damage to the state of Texas alone. Their populations are growing exponentially into the millions, and they're tearing up ranchland, feasting on valuable crops and maiming or even killing livestock. They have insatiable appetites, violent temperaments and can grow up to 400 pounds. Farms have had to shut down and families have been left scared to step outside their own homes. The Campbells may be called in to help a farmer save his crops, a scrap yard owner who is being harassed by an aggressive boar, or an airport official who is crippled by hogs on the runway. In Season 2, Jerry Campbell may have finally met his match after 55 years of hogging when a local rancher starts losing goats to a giant one-eared hog and calls the Campbells for help. Season 3, which opened with back-to-back new episodes on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E, featured Jerry celebrating his victory over Ronnie Creek by spending business profits on Texas "artifacts" and Jerry's behavior forces Krystal to make a big decision.
AMERICAN HOGGERS returned for its fourth season on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT, as A&E aired back-to-back new episodes. In the season openers, Tom surprised Krystal and Lea by bringing in new employee Katie to help with the workload, but Robert viewed her as a distraction while Jerry flirted with her.
