Specify indexes for searching

I have indexes in the format of

these go back several years. when i try to query the system using

index: indexname-*

i end up getting the dreaded 'you're trying to query to many shards error'. if i specify one index indexname-2017.01.01 the query works just fine.

my question is there a way to specify a range of indexes for the query, (ie only look in indexes between these two dates)
