To complete this mission, the player must:

- Ride back to Beecher's Hope.
After killing all the wolves, it's time to head back to the farm.

The mission will fail if the player:
- Assaults or kills Abigail, Jack, Rufus or Uncle.
- Kills his own or Jack's horse.
- Loses sight of Rufus.
- Does not kill all of the wolves.
- Strays too far from the mission location.
- Breaks the law.
- Kills a dog.
- Commits vandalism.
- Assaults or kills townsfolk.
- In the opening cutscene, when Jack is practicing with the rifle, John gives him advice on how to improve his aim by telling him not to stiffen his back "because it'll make the gun jump". Which is the same advice given to John by Landon Ricketts in the mission "The Gunslinger's Tragedy".
- When Jack is firing the Repeater Carbine, it is being operated correctly like its real life counterpart the Spencer Carbine. Unlike most lever actions like the Henry or Winchester, the hammer on the Spencer had to be manually cocked by hand in order to fire. During regular gameplay however, the weapon fires by simply operating the lever.
this mission has the most glitches in the dialouge in the whole game there is 6 different blocks of dialouge. 4 on the way to the first wolves 1 on the way to the next and 1 on the way home. sometimes when leaving the ranch it wont start the dialouge at all other times skipping to the second or third or forth blocks right off the bat. the third block (where jack asks about johns father)is almost always cut real short when john says rufus is on to something. then after the first wolves the second pair almost always pops up immediately thus skipping the convo when going to the second pack by following the dog. the final block (on the way home) never messed up 4 me in about a hundred tries so if u get that far count ur lucky stars and save it. i never got the full dialouge in 1 mission so good luck.
