"American Hoggers" Season 3 on A&E is an original reality docu-series that follows the Campbell family and their struggle to rescue Texas residents and ranches from the devastating chaos caused by millions of invasive wild boars.

Each episode of "American Hoggers" follows former Texas Ranger and legendary hog hunter Jerry Campbell, 64, his level-headed son, Robert Campbell, 28, and firecracker daughter, Krystal Campbell, 23, 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. Clad in chaps and cowboy boots, the family sets out in each episode to square off against these extremely intelligent animals that are terrorizing helpless landowners.

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.

When a call comes in, Jerry hops in his custom off-road Jeep, Krystal saddles the horses and Robert rounds up the hog-hunting dogs for jobs that cover every corner of central Texas. They 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; no matter how dangerous the situation, the Campbells are prepared for anything.

Season 2

In the first episode of season two, when a local rancher starts losing goats to a giant one-eared hog, he calls the Campbells for help. However, after 55-years of hogging, Jerry Campbell may have finally met his match. While Robert, Krystal and Lea hunt for the one-eared hog on horseback, Jerry's stubbornness mixed with some tough terrain causes him to roll his Jeep. The team re-groups that night and Jerry announces it's time for him to hang up his spurs — and he wants his son, Robert, to take over — which does not sit well with Krystal.

Season 3

Last season, 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.
