Lord Ashton is on white buffalo hunt with his faithful English valet Woolsey. After an encounter and threat from Bison Bob, the drovers find Ashton mortally shot in the back at the bottom of a ravine. After they rescue him, he tells Woolsey as he dies Favor is a gentleman and should be treated as such. Woolsey decides to become Favor's Gentleman's Gentleman much to Favor's displeasure as he creates havoc with the drovers and especially Wishbone with too much competition cuisine-wise. Favor is also battling ruthless, smelly Bison Bob, whose hunt ends if the drive stampedes the wary buffalo.
