Ben Johnson rode with all of them and outlasted all of them good call
Chuck Conners as Lucas McCain, The Rifleman, I would have to say. I loved watching that show after school. That and the Lone Ranger. Clayton Moore.
Cattle drive cowboys, open range cowboys, add barbed wire and you got ranch hand cowboy or a rodeo cowboy? Maybe a sodbuster with a few head? And then silver screen/tv cowboy?
I met a saddle makers son in the 80's in Idaho. I joked about dropping everything to stay and be an apprentice. He told me there are no new families getting in to this line of work, it was a living past. I know I have romanticized in my mind working the west. For those men who did it, and the women that loved them, it was just 'life'.
Cowboy through and through..... Yippie-ki-yay, M##########er!
And don't forget Cisco's (Duncan Renaldo's) black and white, overo, horse, Diablo.
I always liked Jay Silverheels as Tonto and his paint horse, Scout. Jay was a horse trainer in real life.
A very good friend of mine actually lived his dream of becoming a cowboy. When he was young, he bought himself a three screw Ruger Blackhawk, 44 magnum and headed west, to Arizona and cowboyed on a cattle ranch for seven years. I'm very jealous of him. Good onya Fitz, for living your dream.
LMAO. You're a real piece of work Skysoldier.
Kent Rollins, find him on YouTube
Love watching Kent and his lady, Shannon.
He has been posted in NES in various threads.
Cast Iron Cooking - How many of you cook solely on cast iron cookware?
You say that as if it were a bad thing!
Think of the positives...you only need to own about 10 DVDs total....since you would forget the entire movie of the first one just around when you watched the tenth one, and can watch it again free!
Steve Miller...aka the Gangster of Love
Gabby Hayes . . .( Learned to ride a horse at 41 years old LOL )

The reason I’ve been so blessed to spend so much time out West is due to my cousin moving there, from Malden! Owns his own cattle ranch now at the base of the absaroka beartooth mountain range. You would never guess looking at this quintessential Montana cowboy that his roots run all the way back to Malden Ma of all places. In my opinion your friend and my cousin are the smartest motherf*ckers we know. Gods country out there, compared to the douche bag Ville we’re running here.
It's interesting that you pick one where the hero dies.
I'm pretty sure Sam Elliott is just being himself in every role. This was one of my favorites, despite being pretty brief. Although, he was pretty badass in Road House.
Four pages and nobody mentioned Steve McQueen....
thought about this for a while. i came up with the only cowboy i met and knew in real life. he was a part time bartender at a place i frequented in pueblo, colorado and an enthusiastic participant in amateur rodeos in southern colorado, oklahoma and texas. it's been a while, i think i remember his name was brian "hoofs" cambria. his nickname came about because the animals he was riding in these rodeos always seemed to step on him after he fell off of them. actually, i saw him ride once and this tenderfoot thought he was pretty good, but i only have movie cowboys for comparison. he certainly talked the talk and walked the walk...and protected my drunk ass from some irate boyfriend in his bar one night...so, he gets my vote.
I grew up watching them all and so many great one's but I agree with you
Watched one last night "Tumbleweed"
My brother and I grew up reading all of Louis L'Amour's books. We learned a lot about life, morals, and obviously a love of guns. He just had a knack for describing the world in detail that made you feel like you were there.
Yeah, usually the black guy dies first in the movie
my favorites are listed above, but I'll add John "The Hangman" Ruth from the Hateful Eight
"You only need to hang mean bastards, but mean bastards you need to hang!"
Modern day cowboy (RIP)
Just got "The epic life of Frank Hamer" Texas Ranger. The man who killed Bonnie and Clyde. It may be him I will let you know...
I just finished that book. I found it to be a extremely entertaining and well-documented story of Hamer and Texas during that time period. And the other night I was able to watch "The Highwaymen" on Netflix. It followed that part of the story pretty well but I am sure that much of the dialogue had to be "invented" since these sorts of interpersonal interactions are not closely recorded many times. But it does serve to flesh out the characters and not in a bad way. I am not sure just how close Costner and Harrelson came to portraying their characters. But the way that they did reminds me of a tagline about Robert Culp and Bill Cosby in the movie "Hickey and Boggs".
"They're not cool slick heroes.
They're worn, tough men.
And that's why they're so dangerous."
I am sure that you will enjoy the book.
