"The whole reason it fell into our lap was they were looking for wide open country where you couldn't see fences or modern stuff," Chris Laucomer, the fourth-generation rancher on FX Bar Ranch told Tri-Stat Livestock New. "They contacted some gal from Scottsbluff and got a relative of ours who called my dad. A guy who looks for scenery of all this stuff came out and took pictures. He came out and the Coen brothers came out and looked and decided they would do some of it here. They got real specific of where they'd shoot. I rode horseback in the hills for them. They have an Indian battle and wagons, so dad rode for them one day," Laucomer said. "Then they disappeared for a week, then brought back a load of people — cinematographers and gardeners. They're going to put specific plants in each shot, and they've got wranglers that have horses that know how to fall and about 20 wagons. It's quite an undertaking. They're going to be here all of two weeks."
