Most southern upland bird hunters, when imagining prime quail habitat, still think of the massive, mostly private, pine savannas of Georgia or South Carolina, even if they have never been to one, which most haven’t.It’s true, there is something remarkable about a well-managed pine savanna, whether one is trying to coax a wily gobbler through fresh sprouts of wildflowers and legumes popping in early spring after a late winter burn, or maneuvering in behind a bird dog locked tight on the scent...
The 18th Annual Virginia Fly Fishing & Wine Festival will be back at Meadow Event Park next weekend, Jan. 13 and 14.For those of you who are thinking, “Isn’t it a little earlier this year?” the answer is, “Yes!” The festival, which was held in Waynesboro for many years, has traditionally taken place in the spring. After moving to the event park several years ago, switching to the winter months seemed the next logical progression.
It had been a rather productive morning. Nothing over the top, but I had added several geese to the tally for the year, both of which were lying by the sidewalk as I was busy unloading the rest of the gear from my car.My neighbors know I hunt, so seeing me step out in the street with a cased shotgun and a few birds is at least a fairly reasonable and regular occurrence. Still, I try and keep the dead birds away from the kids in the neighborhood. Not everyone sees hunting the same way.
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".
