Rance Roden plans to kill off all the buffalo, causing the Indians to riot and destroy the US Cavalry, and allowing the Roden gang to take over the West.

Meanwhile, a Boston magazine gets wind of the buffalo slaughter and sends Ken Cabot and his Stooge associates to Casper, WY to investigate. Once there, Ken's shooting skill, secretly aided by Annie Oakley, earns him the job of Sheriff. Rance calls on his band of famous outlaws to kill Cabot and the Stooges.

Costars Sally Starr, Hal Fryar and Bruce Sedley were guests at the 1995 Three Stooges Convention in Philadelphia. The report of that event can be found in The Three Stooges Journal # 75 (Fall 1995). Joined by fellow costar Johnny Ginger, the four "outlaws" joined fans at the 2005 Fan Club Meeting. Details of that event, plus an interview with Mssrs. Fryar, Sedley and Ginger, appear in Journal # 114 (Summer 2005).

The Stooges are hobos thrown off a freight train and chased out of the railroad yard. They hide in the "Hangover Athletic Club," where Curly is hired as a sparring partner. Ivan Bustoff, wrestling World Champion, takes a shine to the Stooges, and his manager Tony hires them to keep on eye on Bustoff and make sure he doesn't drink. Ivan gets plastered regardless, followed by the boys knocking him cold with dumbells. Moe sends out Curly disguised as Bustoff, hoping that his violent reaction to "Wild Hyacinth" perfume will win the match and keep Tony's gang from knocking them off.
