First a bit of background: I’ve used hand and gas augers for 40 years. Specifically, I own a 6-inch StrikeMaster Mora hand auger, which works fairly well when ice thickness is less than 1 foot, and an 8-inch Jiffy gas (2 cycle) auger for midwinter, when it’s safe to drive my full-size pickup on the ice.During the last few years, I’ve noticed more and more serious ice anglers switching to a new drilling system that at first glance seemed too good to be true.
True, turkey season is still a few months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make a purchase now that could dramatically change your luck during spring 2018.I’ve written about the incredibly lifelike turkey decoys from Dave Smith Decoys (DSD) before; click here to witness a durability test where a hunter fires a 12 gauge turkey load into a DSD hen at a range of only 12 yards.
In the months leading up to my week-long Precision Rifle 7 class at Gunsite Academy in Arizona, I spent time with notebook in hand carefully writing down the equipment suggested on the web page detailing “Precision Rifle Equipment Requirements.” From rifles and telescopes to spotting scopes and tripods, this info was tremendously helpful in knowing what to purchase and pack.One section on that page titled “Load Bearing Equipment” was particularly helpful.
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".
