A buffalo hunter loses his freedom
13 February 2013 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Buffalo hunter, Jeff Sutro, has returned to Dodge after another useless hunting trip. Buffalo are now rare in the Kansas prairie and the free life of the buffalo hunter is coming to an end. So Mr. Sutro has killed a calf on Jim Donner property. A young cowboy, Billy Waters, working for Donner, comes riding up and is fascinated by the free lifestyle of Sutro. When more of Jim Donner's men ride up, Sutro kills one of the cowboys which he says is in self-defense.

Sutro goes to trial and is found innocent of the murder. Billy Waters respects Sutro's way of life that he teams-up with him in a freight company. But when Sutro kills a man for supposedly stealing a horse, Billy is not pleased. The man said he bought the horse from a traveler which may have been the truth.

Billy Water realizes that Sutro is from a different era. Sutro takes law into his own hands which is becoming a thing of the past.

The last show of season ten we get a nice story that is well played by the actors. It is still a well written story that was interesting. It is about a dying way of life that is no longer accepted as normal. Which is good for all involved.
