The CoveyRise article included the following quotes:

"This breed really is the perfect jack of all trades, it's the ultimate dog for the guy who wants to do just about everything"...  "Whether you hunt pheasant in the Dakotas, Grouse... or waterfowl in the swamps of Louisiana, (these) dogs will deliver".

"and unlike other dogs that can be very wound (up), they are also good family dogs and good companions...  Cliche', but true".
