Synopsis
When a buffalo stampede kills his herd of cattle, former buffalo hunter Sandy McKenzie reluctantly joins hunter Charley Gilson on one of the last buffalo hunts in the Northwest. The pair hire a half-breed boy and a peglegged old-timer as skinners and are successful in the hunt, despite the increasingly erratic and sadistic behavior of Gilson.

Indexer Notes
