| Preserving the Animal Preserve
Home On The Range is a film about the range being home to much wildlife and how we have to protect it. At least that's the way Tom Chatterton feels, but his next door neighbor and niece Lorna Gray feels a whole lot differently. Bears are killing her cattle and other rancher's cattle and she means to do something about it.

Chatterton however has hired Monte Hale as a kind of game warden. Of course there's skullduggery afoot and Hale finds out what it is.

This film has the look and feel of a Roy Rogers film which devolved on to Hale from Republic Studio boss Herbert J. Yates. It has scene stealing Bobby Blake and Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers to make Rogers identification complete. It's also the type of story that Roy was doing at this point in his career.

Perennial western villain LeRoy Mason is at the bottom of the evil doing and he certainly meets a rather poetic end. Hale does fine pinch hitting for Roy as it were.
