The Cartwrights are winning the race to deliver lumber for the railroad when competitor Tom Bannerman dynamites their skid road; he aims to be "bull of the woods." When the Cartwrights set up an overhead transfer rig to bypass the break, Bannerman tries to dynamite that too. When a bear attacks Bannerman, Hoss kills the bear and snuffs out the fuse. An injured Bannerman acknowledges that he owes his life to Hoss and deems Ben Cartwright the bull of the woods.
