Just finished reading the entire thread. Gleaned some good info.
Most states hunting regs tell you the minimum caliber, FPS, ft# and powder
Unfortunately Wyoming does NOT have a Black Powder only hunt. Unless they just put it in and I haven't seen it yet.
But I was looking at either the walker or dragoon. Was looking at the dragoon because of the loading rod catch.
But the Walker for the larger load and longer barrel.
Was wondering the dragoon latch could be installed on the walker?
Is the latch mounted by a post or a dovetail?
Reading the link to the wiki and they said some had used a piece of rawhide. That would be simple enough to do.
But anyways I enjoyed the thread!
