Never has a small deer looked so big. Sitting at the end of a trail in the White Ranch Conservation Area in south-central Missouri, Patricia Ward watched a small doe tiptoe out of the timber. She squeezed the trigger on her rifle and ended years of frustration. On Saturday, opening day of the Missouri firearms deer season, she shot her first deer. “I’m disabled, so I usually can’t stay out too long,” she said as she teared up. “I love deer hunting, but I’ve never taken one.
"Just being out here fishing again is great," said Coleman, 60, who was fishing on Smithville Lake with his good friend, Gary Burton. "But to catch a bass like this--that's special. "Thinking about times like this is what kept me going when I was in the hospital all that time." The big largemouth rose and left a giant swirl, then wallowed and tried to make a run. But it wasn't long before Burton had the fish by the lip.
Roger Booth and John Brick once thought they had to get away from the maddening crowds to catch trout in Yellowstone National Park. No longer. In July, they stood at the edge of the Lamar River - just yards from the entrance road to the park - and caught cutthroats at the same clip as when they traveled far into the park wilderness.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
