ďTHE HUNTERSĒ



Pa decides to take Laura hunting with him. When Charles and Laura are getting settled down for the night, Laura trips over her dad's gun and sets it off. Charles is badly wounded. Laura runs to get help, but the only person she can find is a blind person, Sam. Since Sam just recently became blind, he knew his way around somewhat. After getting lost a few times, Sam and Laura finally find Mr. Edwards' home. Mr. Edwards gets a doctor, who saves Mr. Ingalls. Thanks to Laura, Sam learned that just because he was blind didn't mean he had to stay at home and do nothing.

This is one of my favorite episodes Thumbsup
I really love the relationship Laura has with her Pa. When I first saw this episode, I remember being really shocked when the gun went off. Everything was so happy and then in an instant things got ugly... that gunshot was so loud!
Tears just started coming out of my eyes when Charles says "Please God... Don't let her see me die" bawling

Both Laura and the blind man really pulled through in the end! They helped each other up... when one was down, the other would lift them up so that they could continue going... never was I so happy to see Mr. Edwards in a scene then when I saw him resting in the wagon... which meant Laura had found him! Anyway, love this episode! Applause

Great episode. If you look at the second to the last picture, Laura looks a bit older. Whether it's the angle of the camera or her hair falling out of her ties, you can see some maturity there.

I just watched this one on DVD after not seeing it in quite some time. It's rarely shown on TV because it runs 90 minutes (actually only 72 minutes without commercials). One great thing about owning the DVDs is being able to watch all the episodes in order. Anyway, I like this episode a lot. Most of all, it highlights the very special relationship between Charles and Laura, and Michael and Melissa were terrific in portraying that in this episode. Also, I like how Laura and Sam work together, in the process not only finding Mr. Edwards but also helping Sam to get outside the cabin and experience life again.

I've always liked how realistic the outdoor scenes are in this show. Unlike "Bonanza" and the fake lighting and scenery. The scene where the gun goes off does not seem contrived at all. And the episode where Mr. Edwards is mauled by a bear was realistic, too.

After thinking I saw every episode/movie at least 100 times, I am watching this episode on The Hallmark Channel for the very first time. It's like a treat discovering a new-to-me episode after all this time. I'm enjoying it very much.

It's too bad Hallmark Channel can't find a way to work in the 90-minute episodes in sequence.

I know. I wish they would too. They can always show one of the 30 min. shows they play (like I Love Lucy or Golden Girls) if they need to fill that half hour slot. I've been watching the who's forever and can't believe there was one I missed. I only have the first two seasons on DVD.

Laura: Because I want to. Besides, I always do anyway.

Laura: I wanted to tell you something.

Charles: Well, it better be darned important.

Laura: Oh, it is. Iím getting bigger, Pa. More than a whole inch bigger!

Charles: Well, from the looks of it youíre doing most of your growing on top of your head! Now, you can talk about tomorrow morning, I want you to get some sleep.

Laura: But, youíre going hunting tomorrow morning. I was afraid I might miss you.

Charles: Well, you donít have to worry about that. Edwards is taking a freight run tomorrow; heís going to drop me off at Morgan Creek and Iíll walk in from there. Now come in, give a kiss good night; I want you to get some sleep.

LAURA WALKS UP TO CHARLES

Laura: You like hunting, donít you, Pa?

Charles: Yeah, itís kind of a good excuse to get to the mountains. But, the important thing is we need the meat!

Laura: You said I could go when I got bigger.

Charles: Well, you can, maybe next time.

Laura: But, thatís what you said last time.

Charles: Well, what I meant was when you get older; not bigger.

Laura: Well, I am older; and more than a whole inch bigger!

Caroline: Iíll get her hem started. Tomorrow!

Charles: Why donít you let her go hunting tomorrow?

Caroline: What?!!

Charles: (turns his head) Why donít you just let her go hunting tomorrow? She knows her way around the woods; she could be a bug help to me in the camp.

Caroline: I donít want her going hunting.

Charles: Why not?

Caroline: Sheís tom-boy enough as it is, Charles, without encouraging her!

Charles: Well, thatís just the point sheís going to be a woman the rest of her life. Why donít we let her be a tom-boy a little bit longer? Now, you mark my words, one of these days sheís going to walk in that door, sheíll be a full-grown woman, and youíll say ĎWhereís that little girl I used to have?í

Caroline: Thatís not the point. Sheís a girl not a boy, I donít want her there, itís not proper.

Charles: Oh, Caroline, I promised her. I mean, she kept asking me and I promised herÖÖ

Laura: Sure does. I love it!

Charles: Having a good time?

Laura: Best time I ever had!

Charles: I was a little worried about you there; we did a lot of traveling, I was afraid for a while you wouldnít make it.

Laura: Well, sure I would. I could walk all the way to China if I had to!

Charles: Iím afraid youíd lose me on a trip like that.

Laura: Well; I wouldnít go without you. I love being with you, Pa!

Charles: Ah, we spend a lot of time together; donít we?

Laura: Sure we do. But this is different. Itís just you and me. Itís not like at home. Promise not to laugh if I tell you something?

Charles: As long as itís not one of your cherry tree jokes.

Laura: (laughs) Itís not!

Charles: Alright then, I promise.

Laura: Well, when I was little; I used to think that Iíd marry you someday.

CHARLES AND LAURA LAUGH

Laura: I know it sounds silly, but you think of silly things sometimes when youíre little.

Charles: Yeah, I guess we all did.

Laura: But, then I got to thinking that I could grow-up to be a boy. That way we could hunt and plow, and be together almost all the time. But, now that Iím grown-up, I think thatís silly. But, being out here, just you and me, itís kinda like both those things. You know what I mean?

Charles: I think so. I can remember I used to think silly things when I was a kid.

LAURA FALLS ASLEEP AS HE TALKS

Charles: Iíll tell ya, I was sure that my Pa was the strongest man in the world; and I knew my Ma was the most beautiful! I mean, she was beautiful like those Queens in the countries in Europe and stuff. You get a little bit older you look at things different. I can remember the first time when I saw your Ma in the big woods. You talk about pretty! She was the prettiest thing I everó

After all of these years, I FINALLY watched "The Hunters" for the first time when it was on TV earlier tonight. Not too bad, although I tend to be partial to the later seasons of the series. Burl Ives was terrific. Happy ending, as appropriate. Some tough issues to deal with too. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give "The Hunters" a 5.

Good episode. It did look very realistic. They made the blood look real. Laura sure had a strong bond with her father.

Ii always miss this show, I think I saw it once years ago, so I ordered it on Netflix and should get it later in the month. It's nice to see a show I haven't seen or isn't fresh in my mind. The Godsister was the last one I had the same experience with.

When you watch it, you may want to know, the guy who plays Burl Ive's son
is Johnny Crawford who played "Mark" on "The Rifleman". Michael appeared on that show
twice in a guest star capacity and in one episode, saved "Mark's" life.

I would be interested to know how you ordered a Little House Episode from Netflix. I've never seen any available there.
Perhaps I am searching incorrectly?

I finally watched it, I liked it and it was a change from the regular shows. I really liked Burl Ives and his son, Johnny Crawford. It wasn't too overly emotional and the scenes in the woods seemed real. I don't recall the scene where Charles asked God not to let her see him die...it did freeze on occasion so maybe it got missed or maybe it was cut out? (or I got the wrong show)
Some Bonanza fans on the youtube site caught references to Bonanza scripts in some of the sayings, "Dang" and "Dadburnit" being one of them. : )
I am starting to watch a few of those again, mainly the ones that mirror LHOP and Michael wrote or starred in.

On a lighter note, I'm glad they left off the homecoming and mix of emotions from Caroline, what a story that would have been!

one of the best so far (watching in order) Did they skip this on Cozi. They showed the girls play episode from Season 2 and it said "Hunters" on the screen!
