Can you match these Western characters to their correct jobs?

Do you know who was a cook, a scout and a lawyer?

While most characters on classic Westerns are broadly described as cowboys, their actual occupations vary quite a bit. Some are actual cowboys on cattle drives, some are lawmen and others are cooks, doctors and even lawyers.

Wow! Lucky! I missed the very 1st question. It was mostly guesses on the Wagon Train/Rawhide questions.

10/12, I was so close. I've watched the other westerns enough to remember but I haven't watched much of the Virginian or the Wild Wild West.
