American Hoggers is a reality television show that aired on A&E from 2011 to 2013. The show follows the Campbell family, who run a professional hog hunting business in the state of Texas. The series focuses on the Campbell family's struggles to keep their business afloat and their commitment to eliminating the dangers posed by wild hogs that run rampant in the rural areas of Texas.

The main character of the show is Jerry Campbell, a tough and tenacious father of two who runs the family's hog hunting business. Jerry is a veteran of the Vietnam War and has spent most of his life hunting wild animals. He is aided by his son, Robert, and his daughter, Krystal, who help him in the challenging, dangerous task of catching wild hogs.

The show is centered on the family's hog hunting adventures, which often involve chasing after wild hogs deep in the woods or in the swamps of Texas. The Campbells often use traps, dogs, and rifles to catch the hogs, which they later sell to meat processing facilities. The series also features dramatic moments such as Jerry capturing a dangerous hog that was known to attack humans, or Krystal getting injured by a charging hog.

The show's production value is high, with stunning aerial shots of the Texas landscape and dramatic editing that heightens the tension of the hog hunts. The series also includes interviews with the family members, who offer insights into their hunting techniques, their motivations for doing what they do, and their personal lives.

Throughout the show, the Campbell family faces many challenges. They must deal with aggressive hogs that pose a danger to both humans and other animals, as well as a changing landscape in Texas that is increasingly encroached upon by suburban development. The Campbells also face competition from rival hunting businesses, which can pose a threat to their livelihoods.

Moreover, the Campbells come from a traditional hunting background, which can be at odds with the animal rights movement that opposes hunting. The show explores the tensions between these two perspectives and offers a glimpse into the lives of those who make their livelihoods from hunting wild animals.

American Hoggers has been praised for its authenticity and attention to detail in depicting the life of a hog hunter in Texas. The series offers a unique window into a world that many people know little about, and gives viewers a glimpse into the tough and hardworking lives of the Campbell family.

In conclusion, American Hoggers is a captivating reality TV show that highlights the lives of hog hunters in Texas. With its stunning cinematography, gripping drama, and authentic portrayal of small-town life, the series is a must-watch for any fan of reality TV or outdoor adventure shows. Despite being canceled after three seasons, the show's impact on popular culture and its devoted fan base have made it a memorable and enduring addition to the world of reality TV.
