'American Hoggers' and 'Storage Wars' with Jeff Dunham guest star back on A&E

The Campbell family and their struggle to rescue Texas residents and ranches from the devastating chaos caused by millions of invasive wild boars continues. Each episode of “American Hoggers” follows legendary hog hunter Jerry Campbell, 64, his family as they respond to those threatened by feral hogs.

Tune in alert for America’s most addictive treasure hunting series, as season four of A&E’s hit real life series “Storage Wars” premieres with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, April 16 at 9PM and 9:30PM ET/PT, followed by the return of the most fearsome hog hunters in Texas.  The third season of “American Hoggers” premieres with back-to-back episodes at 10PM and 10:30PM ET/PT.

“Storage Wars,” which follows teams of bidders looking to score big in the high stakes world of storage auctions, returns for season four with twenty-six brand new episodes. 

 

Last year, “Storage Wars” ranked as A&E’s number one series among adults aged 18-49 and 25-54 and the number three non-fiction show on cable among adults aged 25-54.  The series’ third season averaged 4.2 million total viewers.

In the season four premiere episode of “Storage Wars,” it’s an auction standoff in Stanton, California.  Darrell reemerges after scoring the biggest hit in “Storage Wars” history.  Barry gets his motors running.  And Nabila gets run up on a locker…that’s fit for a dummy.

Celebrity ventriloquist and comedian Jeff Dunham guest stars as an appraiser.  At 9:30 PM ET/PT, the buyers are back in Surf City, USA.  Barry brings the king of kitsch, Charles Phoenix, to “view” an auction first hand.  Darrell finds there’s no such thing as home field advantage.  And Jarrod buys solo only to have Brandi drag him down to the station!

Immediately following “Storage Wars,” it’s an all-new season of “American Hoggers,” premiering at 10PM ET/PT. The series follows legendary hog hunter Jerry Campbell and his family as they rescue Texas residents and ranches from the devastating chaos caused by millions of invasive wild boars.

The Campbell family and their struggle to rescue Texas residents and ranches from the devastating chaos caused by millions of invasive wild boars continues.  Each episode of “American Hoggers” follows legendary hog hunter Jerry Campbell, 64, his family as they respond to those threatened by feral hogs.  Located in the heart of Texas, the family dedicates itself to 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.

A threat to farmland and livestock:

Half of the wild boar population in America lives on the Texas countryside.

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.

Feral hogs have caused over $50 million per year in damage to the state of Texas alone. Farms have had to shut down and families have been left scared to step outside their own homes.

Last season on “American Hoggers,” a divided Campbell family banded together to take down Jerry’s nemesis, fellow hog hunter Ronnie Creek, a victory that reestablished Jerry Campbell as THE Boss Hog of Texas.

However, it was bittersweet for Jerry’s daughter Krystal. Now, after a blow-out fight with her dad on the first hunt of the season, Krystal decides it’s time to step out from Jerry’s Texas size shadow and form her own hogging company, Wild Women Hogging, with best friend, Leah Penick. 

With the Campbells divided and the family weakened, Ronnie Creek returns to retake his title as Hog Boss leaving Jerry to fight for his title and his family.
