PlotEdit

Pursued through Arizona by a gang of outlaws turned bounty hunters for the massive reward on Billy's head, Billy and Fuzzy are led to safety by Ed Dawson. Suspicious as to why anyone would help them, Dawson tells them he feels Billy as not as bad as he is made out to be. More importantly he needs Billy and Fuzzy to work on his cattle ranch in New Mexico which is facing cattle rustling and the murder of their cowboys. Ed is wounded by the bounty hunters, but Billy is able to save his life by risking his own life to bring a doctor to Ed.

As Ed convalesces, Billy and Fuzzy ride to Ed's sister's ranch in New Mexico. When they see her trail boss Brandon trying to get his crew to quit and work for another rancher, Fuzzy humiliates him, beats him up and drives him off the Dawson ranch. Keeping his true identity secret, Billy is made the new trail boss. Faced by rustling and offers to sell out by the wealthy Mr Stone, who Brandon really works for. Billy teams up with all the other victims of Stone's murders and rustling to form a "trail patrol" to protect their stock and defeat the outlaws.
