Good script holds the viewers attention the entire episode.
The episode begins with the farmers around Dodge having trouble with wolves and coyotes that are killing their herds. So the farmers put out a bounty for killing these animals which attracts all the money hungry hunters from all over Kansas. There main goal is to kill this lone wolf named Lobo.
While the hunters gather inside Dodge along comes this mountain man named Luke Brazo. Luke is a breed to himself. Just like the wolf, Luke is a lone person that lives off the land with no help from anyone. In fact you can say that Luke is also a lone wolf.
Since Matt is an old friend of Luke's, Matt agrees to ride with Luke to see if they can track the wolf. Luke ends up shooting the wolf but wants no part of the reward money. He feels remorse for the animal as he sees his life aging like the old wolf.
When Luke takes the wolf to the high country to bury the animal, he is shot by some of the hunters wanting the reward money. Luke is able to make it back to Dodge City only to see the wolf hanging in the city street while people applaud the killing. Luke now becomes the wolf as he is the one killing the farmer's animals and creating chaos for the herds. Now the farmers want a price on Luke's head much like they did the wolf- Lobo.
This was a very nice story that was played well by Morgan Woodward. A script that s just as interesting today as it was in 1967 when aired. Good watch
