To get to the point: How does one search on more than one word, as many as 3, 4 or 5, huh?
I've never be able to successfully figger that out:o
The forum has a wealth of knowledge/experience in some very good posts. The objective would be to be able to use previous posts as a "knowledge base" rather than attempting to repeat what was said from memory, or tell a person to do a search.

roy, I like to use the search by user name then type in a key word. If you haven't used the search by user name it is quite handy. All you have to know is the first couple of letters of someones name and it automatically finishes it for you.
If I don't search by user name then I usually search by title only (not the entire post). As far as multiple words I like to use "quotes" around one or more words and if that doesn't work I use all words "quoted" separately. As a last resort I will search by entire post and I usually try that both ways with the quotes.
Ive never not found anything I was looking for. The toughest thing for me is not knowing what (or who's) names have changed.
Some of these hunting forum search thingsrequire a comma between words. Some cant find numbers, like 243 or 3006. Here if I seach for 338 I have to use Edge or Win or Lapua after the number and connected to it or it wont search correctly.
Searching a forum for info one needs is great if more users would do it before they post asking for info. If you look at much older forums like Huntingnet or Realtree a lot of the posts are repetitiously repetitious(yawn). And then there's always the prepubescent 'who here hunts turkeys' posts that I wont even begin a rant on.
