Corrected entry: When Rooster attempts to demonstrate his shooting ability, he discharges 4 rounds from his Colt Peacemaker at the glass bottle, then falls off his horse. Getting up, he retrieves his weapon, shoves it in the holster, and takes some cornbread out of his saddlebag. He fires once at the cornbread, then suddenly has a .44 Dragoon Colt in his hand. He throws up two pieces of cornbread, and his 6th round is once again from the Peacemaker. His last two shots are from the .44.
Corrected entry: Viewed from the cliff we see a muzzle flash as Ned shoots Rooster point blank. (There is not a sound, but earlier scenes have had delayed sounds so it seems plausible.) When Rooster next appears he saves Maddie from the snakes and he is unharmed.

Corrected entry: Mattie is wearing a knife in the scene when she cuts down the hanging man. But when she falls into the pit she sees the knife on the corpse and tries to get it and disturbs the snakes. Why did she not go for her knife then?
Corrected entry: After Maddie Ross gets bitten by the rattle snake, LaBoeuf has to stay behind because they only have one horse and Cogburn needs to get Maddie help immediately. Cogburn tells LaBoeuf he will be back for him. However, when Maddie and Cogburn are leaving they ride right by the dead Ned Pepper's horse which was well within walking distance for LaBoeuf.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the where the girl falls down into the mine shaft with the rattle snakes - she is bitten on the hand by a rattle snake. I could swear the scene shows the snake biting her right hand, not sure which hand Rooster cuts to suck out the venom - but in the final scene the older woman has her left arm amputated.JeffShaffer
