Nov. 11, opening day of modern gun deer season in Arkansas, was a textbook day for deer hunting. Whitetails were active on that clear, cold and calm morning, and hunters were in position to kill 24,532 deer. It was the best opening day in memory at Old Belfast Hunting Club in northern Grant County. Hunters at Old Belfast's Romine Camp brought in six bucks, of which five were at least 3Â˝ years old.
In the summer they were raked over the coals by commercial striper fishing guides after proposing a regulation restricting the transportation of wild-caught baitfish from one waterbody to another. The legislature even got involved and stirred considerably more excitement than fishing-related matters usually generate. The fisheries folks did it again last month by revamping trout fishing regulations on the White River below Bull Shoals Dam and on the North Fork of the White River below Norfork Dam.
As we have for the past dozen years, we invite hunters to share your photographs with the rest of the state's hunting community in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Please send digital photos only. Because of the huge number of images that readers send us, we are unable to process and care for 35mm prints. Send us JPEG files containing the hunter's name, hometown, general location of the hunt and any details that will help tell the story.
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".
