Ohio’s regular deer gun season will open on Nov. 27, and like most previous seasons it’s likely to be a good one, with plenty of venison in the freezer, some fine antlers on the wall, and good memories for the future. Old veterans know what to do when it arrives, but beginners and older folk with little experience might not, so based on my own long years of hunting this productive season, here’s what to expect. Opening day – this is the best day of the first week for hunter success.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is offering some fun activities for outdoorsmen this November. Among them is a hike at Burr Oak State Park at 10 a.m. Nov. 18. Meet at the nature center and call 740-767-3570 for more information. Then there’s a Trail Trek at Shawnee State Park starting at 1 p.m. on Nov. 18 and also Nov. 25. Dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes, and pack water and snacks. Call the park office at 740-858-6652 for details.
Readers know that I like to hunt and fish. But I also like to camp, especially when I can combine this sport with one or both of the others. I started my camping around age 12 when I and my friends would head for the hills overlooking the Ohio River, build lean-tos since we had no money for tents, and spend often several days roaming the woods, sometimes hunting squirrels, pawpaws, berries, and other good things.
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".
