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.

Here are some of our favorite Western characters. Can you match each one to the right job?

11/12 Truth about cowboys most were black or Mexican. None wore six guns when riding, most outfits had a hunter that carried a rifle. Cowboy was a low paying, dirty, dangerous job. No one wore six guns to the saloon as most towns required visitors to check guns in at the Police office while in town. That includes Dodge City and Tombstone. The old westerns are fun to watch but not historically accurate
