"These western pointing dogs generally have a special look, as if they know things ordinary field trial champions and woodcock wizards haven't heard of. It is a secretive, conniving look that comes from listening for the soft cackle of chukars from distant rimrock and catching the rising scent of sage hens from far down the deep draws, with pronghorns watching from the ridges." Charles F. Waterman
"Every man lives in the worst and best of times, or so said the poet. Live your shooting now with a gusto. Nastalgia has its place but needn't be all one can enjoy. What we do will be the tradition of the next generation. Let it be a proud inheritance that we pass on, centered in our right to be afield each Autumn, gun in hand and dogs a'runnin'."
