Last Saturday, for the first time in at least 10 years, I entered the Northern Zone carrying a muzzleloader on the opening of the deer muzzleloading season. It wasn’t really a planned hunt, but the week before, I was at my friend Dan Ladd’s house in Fort Ann working on the itinerary for our New York State Outdoor Writers 50th Anniversary at Lake George. Dan’s house is in the Adirondack Park and his backyard is all woods.
Mike Galcik of Schuylerville decided to take his dad Paul bass fishing on Lake Champlain last week. They launched early in the morning at Ticonderoga and headed north about a half-mile and started fishing. Mike was pitching plastic baits to the holes in the weeds and dad decided to cast a Chatterbait. It wasn’t too many casts when dad’s rod bent in half and rewarded him with a 28 -inch northern pike — which the beginning of a “LOT” of pike action.
I haven’t received any buck/doe tales from you North Country bowhunters, but I did see a photo of a 305-pound black bear taken with a rifle in Ellenburgh. You can see a picture of the bear on adkhunter.com. And now that the deer bowhunting season is open in the southern zone, and if you are successful, send me all the information. I need your full name, city where you live, antler points, weight, where you were hunting and a short story on the hunt.
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".
