    As I stated in the report section, great report but i can not give you an A as it was a little tardy. Like 1 1/2 year late!:sleep: Btw any picture of the trophies/mounts/rugs?

    The search function is not google for sure.
    A little help.

    In the search function: "More"

    All hunt reports in Africa are now listed with the country in the title.

    If you narrow the search: select "search by title only"
    Select a specific forum; "Hunting Reports Africa"

    The results will be much more satisfactory.

    The search function on AH is actually quite powerful, as @BRICKBURN mentioned try the More... button to get to the actual Search page at the following link: https://www.africahunting.com/search/. Once there you will find different tabs to search in various ways.

    It is true that when searching for an outfitter on AH such as 3S Safaris a lot of results will come up as Safaris is a very common name, however if the name of the outfitter is more unique like for instance Wintershoek you will get a much better search result.

    In regards to the hunting reports section we do include the country at the beginning of each report so that members and visitors of AH can search for a specific country.
    We add the following for instance:
    SOUTH AFRICA:
    NAMIBIA:
    BENIN:
    USA:
    CANADA:
    and so on...

    If the hunt report is for a bow hunt we add also the following:
    BOWHUNT:

    If both rifle and bow we add also the following:
    RIFLE: BOWHUNT:

    We combine the above to make the reports more searchable through their title, like:
    SOUTH AFRICA: NAMIBIA: BOWHUNT:

    I like your suggestions regarding adding the outfitter name, dangerous game/plains game in the title however I have also been reminded by members throughout the years of moderating AH that they do not like it when you start messing around with their title and post too much so this is part of the reason why I stopped at just including the country and if it was a bow hunt.

    Another assist that hunters themselves can provide to other members of using the “tag” Specific, relevant terms that som on might be searching for can be added to each OP.

    I did post some photos of the mounts, or several of them... They should be under the Taxidermy section.
