Story untitled in the original.
Jory Braden [The Texan] is the ace man-hunter of the Texas Rangers.
Lorence Bjorklund is credited to this story by JVJon at Digtal Comics Museum, and the artwork is identical to the many stories in "Tex Granger", where he had all the covers, and "The Hawk". He can be identified by his longfaced fine horses and broadbrimmed hats. Also the human faces, and his drop-over gunholsters with two straps across.

The reprint has different colors. It is also signed "Larsen" in the original. Howard Larsen can be identified by the 3/4 front view of bi-characters faces usually with prominent chin and potato nose and heavy black shadow underneath.
Richard Speed is credited to fillers and western by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and JVJon at Digital Comics Museum also credits this filler to Speed. Matching the artwork here and a scan on Who's Who confirms it.
The Gay Desperado is noted as hunted for crimes he didn't commit.
