's sons' bloody hunting trip in Africa last year didn't just put a dent in the local wildlife population -- it exterminated a lucrative advertising deal on "Celebrity Apprentice" ... by scaring away a big sponsor.

Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis tells TMZ, the company's TV spots already aired on this season of "Celebrity Apprentice" -- but he insists, "I wouldn't spend another nickel with them."

Marcus adds, "I am totally disgusted by the [hunting] pics I have seen and was surprised to see them ... Money is spent but wow I'm really shocked."

As TMZ previously reported, Donald's sons (Donald Jr. and Eric) went on a hunting safari in Zimbabwe a year ago, killing several animals -- including an elephant, crocodile, kudu, civet cat and waterbuck.

These ignorant rich brats lack good judgement and common sense!! There is no sport in killing these beautiful animals especially an elephant! This whole thing is disgusting and hopefully more sponsors of this stupid show will leave!!!

More sponsor should pull out, we shouldn't support this kind of behaviour!!!!!!

Scene: Kenya Nat'l Park - Big Game hunting ranch.

5 douchebags get off a private jet dressed in brand new starch-pressed khaki from head to toe - Huge rings of sweat confirm the heavy cotton and lack of exercise is once again visible at the immigration counter - Baggage handlers, private limo drivers, street vendors, airport gawkers all laughing to the point of gut cramps at the site of the pasty white hunters as they trembled under the midday sun! One young man says; "Why do the same Americans come back every year”? Nino replies; "These are not the same douchebags, they all just look alike and they all shop at Bass Pro Shops - you dummy! "

Douche bags arrive at the ranch - each are handed an 8,000 custom hunting rifle with a scope that magnifies 12 x

DBags climb into a hummer and drive to a pre-identified location where the semi-wild big game have been teased with piles of corn, oats and molasses.

Dbags are then instructed on how to place their rifles on a bipod so as to eliminate any shaking...Dbags are instructed to put the furry part of the animal inside the inner ring of the scope...hold their breath and squeeze the trigger. Range = 35 yards.

various animals drop to the ground often shot in a non-lethal area like the ribs, stomach, legs and hind-quarter - Hunting guides immediately "finish" the animal with a large handgun = 44 mag.

Dbags all pose with each dead animal and professional photog on the scene takes copious shots.

DbaGS HEAD BACK TO THE ranch for a big steak (imported from Chicago) and buckets of Heineken and GlenLevit.

Dbags fly home and declare themselves "HUNTERS"

This is disgusting, especially hunting endangered species. I think somebody should 'hunt' the guys down that shot these poor animals......an eye for an eye, if you know what I mean....

Seriously, Camping World? I would assume that they have quite a few Hunters that frequent their stores. I'm thinking that they should go to Bass Pro Shops.

you can't with THE DONALD kids and get away with it, he thinks he can do whatever he wants and people will support him because he has money, I don't watch the show or support anything he does have been this way for years because he is so full of himself he don't need anything from anybody he has it all or so he thinks
