Last month, I went hunting in Vladivostok with my friends Ingram Kelvin and Bartholomew Truman, which was our dream trip. This is the largest city in the Russian Far East, and also the most important port on the Pacific coast, with rich historical and cultural and natural scenery. Since we planned to hunt at night, we needed a high-performance night vision binoculars to help us observe and capture targets. After comparing and choosing from various brands and models, we finally decided to buy WildGuarder owler1, a professional digital night vision device, which has high-definition resolution, long battery life, waterproof and shockproof, multi-functional modes and other features, allowing us to clearly see objects more than 500 meters away in the dark. This article will introduce our process and feelings of using WildGuarder owler1 to hunt in Vladivostok, as well as our exploration and discovery of local history, attractions and food.
Before we went hunting in Vladivostok, we started looking for a night vision binoculars suitable for night use, because observing and capturing animals in the dark is very difficult and dangerous. We searched online for many brands and models, and finally chose WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars, which is a professional digital night vision device with the following performance and advantages:
• High-definition resolution: WildGuarder owler1 uses a high-performance CMOS sensor and a 2-inch TFT display screen, which can provide up to 4608×2592 picture resolution and 1280×720 video resolution, allowing us to see clear images and videos in the dark.
• Long battery life: WildGuarder owler1 uses 8 AA batteries as power supply, which can provide up to 6 hours of continuous working time, so that we do not have to worry about battery exhaustion affecting the hunting experience.
• Waterproof and shockproof: WildGuarder owler1 has IPX4 level waterproof performance, which can be used normally in rainy or humid environments. Moreover, its shell is made of sturdy materials and design, which can resist falling and impact, so that we can use it with confidence in harsh conditions.

It also supports HDMI output and USB transmission, allowing us to output images and videos to large screens or transfer them to computers or mobile phones.
During the hunting process, we made full use of the performance and advantages of WildGuarder owler1, which brought us a lot of surprises and gains. For example: using WildGuarder owler1’s 20x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom, we found a deer that was foraging, locked the target from more than 500 meters away, and successfully shot it down. In addition, during a daytime hunt, using WildGuarder owler1’s wide dynamic range and wide viewing angle, we observed a group of migrating birds and took some beautiful photos and videos.
The reason why we chose Vladivostok as a place to hunt is because its history and culture are very complex and diverse. It used to be Chinese territory, was occupied by Japan, Britain, the United States and other countries. During the Soviet period, it was an important military base and exile place. It was also a window for Russia to communicate with Asian countries. The cityscape of Vladivostok is shaped by different histories and cultures. Each period and influence left a special impression on this city. If you want to know more about the city’s past, the best way is to go to see some museums. We went to the Fortress Museum and the Regional Museum this time and learned a lot.
We went to the Fortress Museum, which tells the military history of Vladivostok from 1860 when it was taken away by Tsarist Russia to 1945 when it was taken back by the Soviet Union. We also learned how Vladivostok Fortress was built and developed. Vladivostok Fortress is one of the largest military engineering projects built by Russia in the Far East region. It has many fortresses, batteries, tunnels, warehouses, etc., which are scattered in Vladivostok city area and nearby mountains and islands. They form a strong defense system. In the Russo-Japanese War and Soviet-Japanese War, Vladivostok Fortress protected this city from being occupied by enemies. In the museum, we saw a lot of military things, such as weapons, clothes, medals, documents, photos, etc., we felt how big and powerful Vladivostok Fortress was.
We also went to the Regional Museum, which tells the history and culture of Vladivostok region from the past to the present in terms of nature, humanities, society, etc. We saw some animals and plants in Vladivostok region, some clothes of different ethnic groups, some things they made by hand, some artworks they made, etc. We also learned how Vladivostok region was connected with China, Japan, Korea and other countries in history. We also learned that Vladivostok used to be called “Yongming City”, and there are some things that prove that Vladivostok was a part of China during the Qing Dynasty. We saw from these things how many different kinds of nature and humanities there are in Vladivostok region, and how long and close the history between it and China is.
And some buildings and attractions in the city center of Vladivostok, such as the Orthodox Church, the train station, the tiger statue, etc. These buildings and attractions reflect different historical periods and cultural styles of Vladivostok. For example, the Orthodox Church is one of the most representative religious buildings in Russia. It is characterized by golden onion-shaped roofs and colorful walls, reflecting Russia’s tradition and faith. The train station is the eastern end of the Trans-Siberian Railway. It is characterized by European-style architecture and decoration, reflecting Russia’s modernization and openness. The tiger statue is one of the symbols of Vladivostok. It is characterized by realistic shape and posture, reflecting Vladivostok’s nature and vitality. In these buildings and attractions, we felt the diversity and charm of Vladivostok.
In Vladivostok, it is natural to eat some delicious seafood and special dishes. As a port city, Vladivostok mainly uses seafood as its main ingredient, and has a variety of seafood dishes and special snacks. We tried king crab, Kamchatka crab, snow crab, Far East sea cucumber, sea urchin, pollock, whale, sturgeon, mahi-mahi, etc. in local restaurants or markets, all of which are fresh and delicious. The most impressive one for us was king crab, which is a kind of crab with huge body size, tender meat quality and delicious taste. It is one of the specialties of Vladivostok. We ordered a 3 kg king crab in a restaurant called “King Crab”, which was made by boiling, baking, frying and other methods. In addition to seafood, we also tried some traditional Russian dishes and snacks, such as black caviar, Russian sausage, borscht, blini, etc., which are also very characteristic and flavorful. In Vladivostok, we not only satisfied our eyes, but also our stomachs.
This hunting trip gave me a lot of gains. I not only experienced the fun and challenge of hunting, but also appreciated the history, culture, nature and food of Vladivostok, and also met some like-minded friends. I would like to thank WildGuarder owler1 specially, this is a professional hunting telescope.
