It's nearly here, the Sept. 30 opening of the 2017-18 archery deer season, and it's going to be another good one. Deer hunters will find the hunting regulations similar to last year, but bag limits were changed in certain counties. The county-wide bag limits have increased from two deer per county to three in 21 counties, this to slow the rate of herd growth, while still allowing herds to grow.
Largemouth bass will bite during any month, even through the ice as I've discovered many times. But there are just two seasons when they're really hungry, in the spring when they're feeding up for spawning and in the fall when they're building fat for a near dormant winter. Which means right now is a prime time to catch some. But autumn largemouths are a little different from spring and summer ones.
There are a good many people in the U.S. who believe that outdoor sports are enjoyed only by a small minority. That’s not so. According to a new five-year report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a whopping 101.6 million Americans, 40 percent of the U,S, population 16 years old and older, participated in wildlife-related activities in 2016 like hunting, fishing, and wildlife watching. The survey showed that wildlife watching surged 20 percent from 2011 to 2016 from 71.8 million to 86 million.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
