Is the any possible way to search and list the bounty question seperately in SO.?

To list the current bounty questions, click on the featured tab.

There doesn't appear to be a way to limit the search though. There's no hasbounty: keyword on the search page. Since September 2011, the hasnotice:1 search option can be used to show bounty posts, but that also shows other posts with notices (deleted question).

This also works for sort/filtering a tag search! But not for normal searches. –  Grace Note Jun 21 '10 at 14:44
hasnotice doesn't show questions with bounties at this time –  chb Nov 18 '13 at 3:09

Using combinations of advanced search operators, you can reach around 90%-95% accuracy:

  1. hasnotice:1 (bounty is considered a post notice, but there are more kinds of notices)
  2. is:question (show only questions, we don't want stuff like locked answers)
  3. locked:0 (exclude most common notice that isn't a bounty)
  4. lastactive:[week ago date]..[today] (format yyyy-mm-dd to exclude questions with notice like "Insufficient explanation" and others)

Example for a full search term: hasnotice:1 is:question locked:0 lastactive:2013-10-03..2013-10-10 (click me)

The tricky part is manually writing the date range to be only last week, if anyone can come up with a userscript for this it would be great.

Really tricky way to search bounty questions. –  hims056 Oct 10 '13 at 12:33
Ha, I copy-pasted your query over and was about to change the date to today. I did a double take and had to look back over here to see if you were doing some sort of wizardry with the date, only to discover it's just a new answer to a three year old question. Apparently I completely missed the last sentence as well. Well done. –  Geobits Oct 10 '13 at 19:49
@Geobits lol! Blame hims056 for pointing me here! ;) –  Shadow Wizard Oct 10 '13 at 20:39
Will this advanced search work for other communities as well? e.g. Biology Can you show an example of how to use a particular tag in this search for past question which offered bounties? –  bonCodigo Jul 31 at 15:34
@bonCodigo this is not possible for past bounties, I'm afraid, since only active bounties cause the question to have a post notice, which is the main part of my answer. –  Shadow Wizard Jul 31 at 16:30

I realize this is an old question, but the way to search bounty questions is to place your search terms in brackets. For example: [java]. All other search criteria can be added as well.
