Bush Pigs Part 2, Leupold’s Pigman: The Series Continues in Africa

DENVER (March 4, 2016) – Last week on Leupold’s Pigman: The Series, Brian “Pigman” Quaca was in Africa going after the elusive African bush pig. He stuck one in the daylight, something unheard of in Africa, but he has days to burn, so what else is there to do but continue hunting for warthogs and more. Tune in for Leupold’s Pigman: The Series exclusively on Sportsman Channel on Sunday, March 6 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

“Photo safari is over, it is time to put some porkchops in the back of the truck,” said Quaca. Nico, Quaca’s professional hunter, helps to put the sneak on a group of warthogs in the bush, but Quaca continues to have troubles dialing in with his bow set up. And wouldn’t it just be Pigman’s luck that a severe cold front blows into Africa? “Warthogs are thin-skinned creatures full of fleas,” stated Quaca. “When it gets cold, they stay in the ground. Hunt over.” Tune in to see if Pigman can salvage this African safari.

Season 7 finds Quaca back with a renewed sense of self and a new motto tattooed on his arm: Vsetko Umiera, which is Slovic for: “everything dies.” Season 6 of Leupold’s Pigman: The Series was a year of recovery and reflection for the host after a horrific highway accident in December, 2014 that left him recuperating more than hunting.
