I’ve been eating venison and other wild game meat for as long as I can remember. In my opinion, it is delicious and a healthy option for protein. In my family, we always ate whatever animal we had hunted and harvested. That is one reason why I enjoy big game hunting in Montana. This year was a year of change for our family. My daughter moved out of our home and into her college dorm room, and my son is getting ready to head off overseas on a mission trip.
Christmas is right around the corner and if you're looking for ideas for that special gift to the hunter on your list, I’ve suggested a few of my favorite items, or at least a few on my wish list. Hunting gear can get expensive; that's for sure. But a good-quality item can last years, possibly even a lifetime. If you aren’t in the market for something with a hefty price tag, I have also included some items that make perfect stocking stuffers.
Dreaming of drawing a bighorn sheep tag in the Missouri River Breaks? Mountain Goat in the Beartooth? Bull elk in the Highwoods? If so, you better start accumulating bonus points if you haven’t already. There are some new changes this year in the bonus point system. You pretty much have to be a math major to understand how it all works to your advantage. I’ve read through the information put out by Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks over a dozen times.
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".
