Hello Again Big Spike!
Crosses like Walker X Mountain Cur will have a variety of outcomes, as far as what you might expect to get in drive and ability.
Being that Treeing Walkers and Mountain Curs typically have very different styles, its very likely that you will either see more dominant Walker traits or more dominant Mountain Cur traits arise in the pups. Sometimes, you'll even get a nice blended dog that will have the best (or worst) of both worlds.
I would say that people do these types of crosses, generally to get a "harder" hunting, longer ranging dog that will tree a lot harder then a typical cur dog will.
Being that this is very much an outcross, there are many more variables involved then traditional Coonhound x Coonhound or Cur x Cur crosses.
Hope that helps!
