Superior episode. Matt and Chester are called out of town to help a trail-herd disrupted by Jayhawkers who scatter herds unless paid off. Good effort at recreating life along the trail drive. Excellent script from John Meston with considerable color and easy-going byplay between Chester and Ken Curtis after initial dust-up. Fine performance from Jack Elam as toughly taciturn trail boss. With his handle-bar mustache, he certainly looks the part. Also, top performance from Curtis as reliable trail hand, showing why he later joined the cast as the drolly amusing Festus Hagen. It looks as though the producers popped for an actual cattle herd to appear on location since the editing does not appear to alternate between stock footage and the cast as was the custom for tightly budgeted programs. All in all, this entry amounts to a laudable effort at cowboy realism and ranks among the series best.
