Frank McClary (John Lupton) goes to the California backwoods to do some hunting but gets into trouble with local tough Jugger Phelps (Jack Kelly). He boards with Lou Sutton (Gloria Talbott) and her aunt (Verna Felton). Evelyn Phelps (May Wynn) takes a shine to the newcomer, but Frank turns down her advances, which throws her into a jealous rage. In a fit, she kills her husband, but the blame is laid on the newcomer. First he fights with his fists, then proceeds to guns until the truth comes out and he and Lou can set up shop for ever and ever.
