Many of Yellowstone’s storylines revolve around businesses trying to get their hands on the Yellowstone Ranch and John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) refusing to give it up. This is once again expected to be a theme that will play out in season four of the Paramount Network drama. However, has a fan now come up with a way to put the Duttons’ minds at rest?

How can the Yellowstone ranch be protected from developers? 

Taking to Reddit, a fan explained how the Duttons could make any of their future problems go away for good.

In a post frustratingly named ‘I am still screaming at the TV’,  the user said: “The answer to all these people wanting to take the ranch is so simple, but NO ONE has thought of it.

“Put the ranch, ALL OF IT in a trust in the name of TATE DUTTON.

“He’s a member of the tribe, and Indian land cannot be condemned or Emminent Domain’d by the state.

“BING BANG BOOM, the ranch is no longer in Danger. Takes care of the tax problems too.”

Tate Dutton (Brecken Merrill) is the young son of Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) and wife Monica (Kelsey Asbille).

While Kayce is a member of the Dutton family by blood, Monica is the granddaughter of Indian elder Felix Long (Rudy Ramos) and a member of the tribe which lives on the Broken Rock Indian Reservation.

Even though Kayce is just related by marriage, Tate is a member of the tribe by blood.

Therefore, if the ranch was to be put into his name, then developers would have no choice but to leave it alone.

Fellow Reddit users were then quick to praise the Yellowstone fan for the idea.

One user said: “Big brain moment here…[trophy emoji] you earned it.” and another joked: “You may have just spoiled Season 6. lol.”.

A third commented: “This the best idea ever. But…what if they kill Tate? They can get to him. Still, great frickin idea.”

Explaining the idea further, a fan continued: “Not only would the entire family be set for life if John sold only a fraction of the ranch, but as Willa Hayes (Market Equities CEO) put it, it would create “generational wealth”.

“Money that would last multiple generations, and, if invested properly, for hundreds of years.”

But others did question whether or not this would be possible and if Tate counted as a member of the tribe.

A Reddit user wrote: “Does it really become “Indian Land” just by putting it in a tribe member’s name?

“That seems like a loophole that would be easily exploited in these circumstances.”

“It’s not a percentage that determines if you are a member of the tribe!! It’s being recognized by the tribe as a memberbased on a recognized lineage connection.

“When tribal relations are reduced to a fraction or a percentage it is very demeaning”, another said.

A third then simply said: “But then there wouldn’t be a show…we NEED it to be complicated.”

As of yet, this possible solution hasn’t been explored in Yellowstone and the developers are still out to get the ranch.

Some of the Duttons enemies could very well be behind John, Kayce and Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) being attacked in the series three finale.

But the true identity of the culprits will hopefully be revealed in season four when Yellowstone returns later this year.

Yellowstone is available to watch on Paramount Network.
