Mike was a javelin thrower and not only could have carried Pernell but probably could have thrown him a few feet.

It was indeed Landon carrying Pernell Roberts. If you look at the episode descriptions on this same site, you will also find the following information: Stunt Trivia: After Adam (Pernell Roberts) is shot and wounded, Michael Landon runs over and so strongly picks him up and carries him across camera range, firing his gun, and then later a filmed cut on Stage 16 as Michael carries Adam in and sets him down at the camp, with Lorne, Dan, and guest star DeForest Kelley, a remarkable feat of strength.

Script Trivia: Because of the dangers and uncertainties of the cast doing stuntwork or not wanting to be injured NBC issued orders only stuntmen would do the stuntwork for the actors. Pernell declined and NBC would not let him pick up and carry Michael, so the script was reversed and Michael being the only actor who was a stuntman on the show was assigned the task of running over, lifting and carrying Roberts over a few cuts at the Iverson Ranch and a final cut on Stage 16 at Paramount. Michael could easily lift, hold and pick up a man larger than himself with no problem. He was a natural athlete and very strong.
