The countrymen in the hills of Missouri take the hounds on night fox hunts. This goes on until Jacob Terry comes into the county and decides to raise sheep and install a woven wire fence. This upsets the neighbors since the dogs would not harm the sheep and they will be hurt running into the fence at night. Jacobs vows to shoot any dogs or people that he finds on his land. But Bengy Davis is in love with Camden Terry and that alone causes problems. But when the hound, Bugle Ann is missing one night, both sides are out with guns to settle the score. Written by

I have been watching for some reappearance of this film for many years, with no satisfaction. You see, I saw it as a child, and there are VERY few films that have remained with me from that long ago. (This very day happens to be my 77th birthday).
It is a touching tale involving a favored hunting dog that somehow gets caught in an animal trap and spends a stormy night baying for some help, but unreachable due to the raging storm. At least, that's the way I remember it. When the storm lets up, the anxious searchers who could hear him but could not locate or get to him find his trapped and dead body. It was so movingly done that I have never forgotten its effect on me.
