I like those dogs, my friend from Mississippi breeds them. He hunted with us in S Texas and they did pretty well. They are good all around dogs and great retrievers.
Yes. Not many here know much about them, much less hunt them. I split my time between upland, ducks, geese, doves, and some tracking work. They are a good fit for what I do. I have another one that will be 7 this hunting season. The pup is the young one in the wings as the one currently in his prime ages.
