Colonel MacKenzie is out on a cattle drive with Tate and other ranch hands when a wolf sets off the steers. After the herd is settled a calf is heard bellowing in the distance followed by wolf howl.

The ranch hands warn Colonel MacKenzie that wolf hunting is dangerous but the Colonel insists he has hunted all his life, for many prey including tigers, so knows what he his doing.

Meanwhile back in town the bank has been robbed of seven thousand dollars and the town Sheriff meets Colonel MacKenzie on the trail and so the two hunters part company after their respective prey.

The Colonel is hunting the wolf using a trailing bait so but little does he realize the wolf is actually hunting him!
