The Texas Cowpuncher comes in many forms, born by the chunk of country he calls home. Down in Gulf Country, cowboys can get ornery crossbred Brahmas to do most anything, even swim the Intracoastal Waterway to winter grazing grounds. Further inland, they rely on their dogs “to bay up” the cattle in the swamps and woodlands.
In the Brush Country, cattle hide in thorny mesquite thickets, but fearless Brush Poppers charge right in after them. And in West Texas, branding takes weeks as Punchers moved from camp to camp with the wagon and a hundred-horse remuda. The day begins before sunup and doesn’t finish until two gathers and two brandings are done.
The hours are long and the pay is short. But if you’re a Puncher, you wouldn’t trade it for anything. Featuring the White Ranch, Tongue River Ranch, 06 Ranch and many others. 116 minutes.
