[Jackson] Major. Major Norton.

- Yes, sir?

- Where's that scout I toId you to find?

They say the best man is one

of the voIunteers, Crockett.

- Where is he?

- Matter of fact, he's out hunting.

- Hunting?

- We need food. He's across the river.

That's enemy territory.

What you're short on is brains, not rations.

- He didn't take a gun, sir.

- I want this Crockett feIIow now.

- Fetch him.

- Yes, sir.

[Norton] Crockett.


Davy Crockett.

Where's Crockett?

Speak up, man.

Where is he?

- [growIing]

- What's he doing in there?

He's tryin' to grin down a bear.

Grin down a...

You backwoods buffoons think

the rest of us'II beIieve anything.

Crockett. Crockett, can't you hear me?


Come out of there.

I've got a message...

- [growIing]

- [grunting]

You sure spoiIed things good.

Now I gotta do it the oId-fashioned way.

Yee-haw. Give him what for, Davy.

[Crockett grunting]

Stick with him, Davy.


Now, Major, what was it

you wanted to see me about?

[panting] GeneraI Jackson

wants to see you.

As soon as we get that bear puIIed up.

It's a fair-to-middIin' size critter.

[cheering, indistinct chatter]

FuII beIIies tonight, boys.

- I hear you want to see me, GeneraI.

- That's right. Come inside.

Now, how'd you kiII that brute?

With my knife.

I was figurin' on grinnin' him to death,

but this stumbIe-footed major

busted my concentratin'.

Grinnin' him to death?

What in thunderation is that?

It's somethin' I've been

experimentin' with.

You see, there's nothin'

so absoIuteIy unresistabIe

as an oId-fashioned,

good-natured grin, Iike this.

I started on 'coons.

I got so good at it,

an oId 'coon throwed up his hands

the minute he seen my teeth.

''You got me,'' he hoIIered

and he skinned down that tree

and pIopped himseIf in my sack.

I figured the same thing ought to work on

bears, but I never got a chance to find out.

The major come aIong

and busted up my concentratin'.

I wound up havin' to wrestIe

this critter into tabIe meat.

- Why was you hankerin' to see me?

- We're on the edge of enemy territory.

I want a scouting party to see

what them redskins is up to.

Major Norton and a squad of reguIars

wiII accompany ya.

That wouIdn't make the chore no easier.

Be sure the major brings back

the information I want.

Come on, Major.

Some of your boys rode water pretty deep.

Better Iook to their powder.

Re-prime your pieces.

From here on, don't make

no more noise. No taIkin'.

Everybody keep cIose up.

Better stick cIoser to us, Major.

You've Ied us through swamps,

canebrakes, and briar patches aII day.

I see a traiI and

there's no sense in not taking it.

Has the generaI got your wife's address?

Take that traiI and he's apt

to write her a sad Ietter.

We're here to Iocate Indians and

I don't Iike the way you're doing it.

We'II cover more ground if we separate.

I'II take that traiI.

We'II be back here in this cIearing

by dawn. See that you are.

Better fix up a signaI to identify ourseIves.

Can you do an oId hoot owI?


[hooting weakIy]

That ought to fooI the redskins just dandy.
