Definition of "searcher"
A searcher is one who searches. It doesn't have to be a human being.

We are all searchers. One doesn't have to be immediately actively involved in searching to be a searcher. I am a truck driver, even though
I don't spend all my time behind the steering wheel of a truck.

So if "a searcher was within 200 feet of the chest", I think it's safe and
valid to take that as meaning that a person was within 200 feet of the
chest. But this, in my opinion, has no value in solving the poem. Of
course a person (notably FF) was within 200 feet of the chest. Please
remember that he is a searcher. Sometimes he searches for a chair.

Concentrate on the poem, but please don't be afraid of a dictionary. It
might even help you understand what "halt" means. And by the way,
I'm giving FF a little leeway here. I'm treating "halt" to mean (per FF's intended definition) coming to a temporary stop for all practical
purposes.

why do you say that if a searcher was within 200ft of the chest, it's safe to to say it means a person

you are the one who just made the point that a searcher doesn't have to be a human being

so if that was a valid point, (let the reader decide), then any animal who searchers for food and has been within 200 feet, would be a searcher within 200ft

I say things because I can.

I don't think FF wants us to much concern ourselves with how close to the TC an ant has gotten. Maybe a red snake was within 200 feet of the TC.

By the way, I don't know whether FF has ever specifically mentioned how close a searcher has ever gotten to the hiding place or hidey place
or the location of either. But I think there's a good chance that a searcher has been within 50 feet of the location before the TC was put there by FF.

I appreciate your attention to detail. Attention to detail sometimes is
accompanied by great grammar, composition, proofreading, and correction as necessary. The concept of "necessary" is a philosophical
one, and subject to debate. A fisherman can debate a hook, possibly
in a masterful way. But I don't necessarily insist that a searcher should spend a huge lot of precious time doing that, even if said searcher is
an aunt.

i see, you made a point of making this point

so you can say the point wasn't much of a point for us to be concerned with

Chris, are you planning to BOTG search for the Fenn trove?

I am. But not before summer. I already BOTG searched at the large
point that can be seen on GE. My next search will be near this place.
