When Buck Sinclair nervously asks his sweetheart Beth's uncle Ringold for her hand in marriage, Ringold refuses because of Buck's poor financial prospects. Ringold then tells Banker Jake Harmon not to renew Buck's loan so that Buck won't be able to bid for a new lease on some valuable grasslands that Ringold wants for himself. Disappointed, Buck asks Beth to elope, but she refuses, hoping that she can change her uncle's mind. Ringold is in partnership with Mileaway, a bullying rancher, whose men destroy fences put up by rancher Wildcat Roper. When Buck comes along and stops them, Wildcat is very grateful to him. At the auction, the leases for the grasslands, which are supposed to sell for twenty cents per acre per year, rise to sixty-five cents per acre. Using money that Wildcat has loaned him, Buck successfully bids for the leases. After this, Ringold tells Mileaway that they should start to make friends with Buck, whose land they will need for their own cattle, but Mileaway has other ideas. He ambushes Wildcat, then shoots him to death. When Buck arrives, he finds Wildcat's body, but also finds a clue nearby, a "lucky" piece from a watch chain. Buck then goes to Beth to tell her that her uncle and Mileway are responsible. She wants to leave the county and start over somewhere else, but Buck tells her they are through and goes away. When Buck goes to town and sees some range flowers on Mileaway's saddle, he is convinced that he has found the murderer. He then buys a pistol after a man from the town, Sundown, prevents one of Mileaway's men from shooting Buck. Buck says that he will have a showdown with Mileaway at 5:00 o'clock that afternoon at the saloon. He deliberately only wounds Mileway, then is followed out of town by some of Mileaway's men. At the same spot where Wildcat was ambushed, Buck looks at additional clues and realizes just how Wildcat was killed. He is able to get away by using a dummy on his horse as a decoy. Meanwhile, Ringold starts to have second thoughts about his partner, especially when he learns that other ranchers are organizing against Mileaway because he killed Wildcat. Ringold tells Mileaway that their partnership is over and starts to go into his house, but is shot in the back by Mileaway. As Mileaway starts to enter the house, Buck shows up and confronts him. As they fight, Mileaway is about to shoot Buck but Sundown arrives just in time to sneak up and shoot Mileaway through a window. Beth then finds her uncle, who is only wounded. Finally, Beth and Buck marry and set up his new ranch and promise Ringold that they will visit him often.
