On last night’s episode of “Way Out West,” fans already are familiar with the antics of the three families from Idaho who run rival outfitting businesses; the Youren, Bullock and Korell families. They are sure to give you a few laughs as they do their thing in the wilderness, while competing against each other as their families have done for over a century.

The episode begins with the Bullocks getting a group of guys from Southern California who want to go bear hunting. Only problem, they have never gone hunting before. Trent considers them city slickers, which is not far from the truth. They took about fifteen selfies before the first hour. One look at these guys, wearing flip-flops and nothing resembling camping gear, and one can tell that they are not camping material. The Bullocks bring the Yourens in to help with the group.

Chris Korell’s son Lafe has decided he does not want to be tattooed, he wants to be branded, just like a cow on his chest. His mother Randi has to find out if it is legal before giving the final approval. Unfortunately, it is legal; but she does not want him to do this, ever.

Randi finally gives her approval, and the branding is scheduled that night when his Uncle Cody comes over. Lafe bites on a stick as his father holds him and lets Cody do the deed. As it is applied, he lets out a howl, but once it is done, he is standing tall and all the family walks back to the house, probably to find some burn ointment on this episode of “Way Out West.”
