    I really like the response on Baca, an impressive man. But lets' go way back, Hugh Glass the fur trapper.

    If we split the Old West into pre- and post- Civil War, then I would support Hugh Glass but favor William Wolfskill.

    That guy took on all of Tombstone and he was only armed with a debilitating cough and a shotgun.
    All he had to do was cough on a "nasty" and lgive him T.B.
    Plus, he always had the Earps to back him up and lhis shotgun as a long-stop.
    I'm not crazy. I only appear to be.
