They were hunting. The boys had a good time and learned a lot. They ate what they killed too. I loved it when they outsmarted Wendell and finally got him. It was one of the highlights of Dallas to me. He was a smart guy and a worthy competitor but he was still human and fallible. Sooner or later either the Ewings would have beaten Wendell or he would have beaten them. Still, William Smithers had a nice long run on Dallas. He played his part perfectly! "The Sting" in which the Ewings finally got Wendell was the last really great episode of Dallas for me. I'm not sure what you meant by this: "And then look, McKay is a good guy because we got George Kennedy to play him" Is it that you don't think George Kennedy is a good actor, or something else? BTW, From what I heard, Kennedy usually played bad guys. Gene Hackman is another who usually plays bad guys.
