Before the Storm

Premiere Date: Apr 16 2013 TVPG V-L

After winning last season's showdown, Jerry Campbell is the Hog Boss in Texas. Business is booming, but Krystal, Robert and Lea aren't seeing any of the profits. They all point to Jerry's new hobby of "investing" in Texas "artifacts" as the main reason, and it all comes to a head when Jerry ruins a hunt because he lost his latest prize: a pipe that was allegedly smoked during the Battle of the Alamo. Meanwhile Ronnie Creek, the loser of last season's finale, is obsessed with his loss to Jerry Campbell. When his teammate Cody checks in on him at home, he finds Ronnie shooting effigies of Jerry in the backyard. He drags Ronnie to their latest client and when the rancher mentions a 500-pound hog on the property, Ronnie becomes convinced his redemption lies in taking down this "Hogzilla."

To Catch a Pig

The mama hog eludes the ladies, who almost lose their catch dog as well when it slips off the Jeep hood while Krystal is racing to a hog. A frustrated Robert decides to try a night hunt in a camouflage tent to see if they might be able to shoot and bag some unsuspecting hogs.

Turf War

While on the hunt, the girls hear something suspicious, and as Lea pulls her gun, culprit Jerry busts out of the brush in the Jeep, and say that they met with the property owners too, and whoever catches the most hogs takes the bank. Ronnie returns from his holy hog sabbatical to a less-than-happy Creek crew, who say they're ready to turn over leadership duties to a live turkey in Randy's lap. They begrudgingly agree to hunt with him again--if he gives up his "imaginary hog." It's the last straw when Ronnie takes off (with Cody in tow) to get his big hog fix after spotting a huge hog wallow, which leaves Randy and Shep behind.

Robert feels handicapped himself on the hunt, as Jerry is stopping to take more potty breaks than the dogs.
