My friends Burnell Baldwin, Keith Harte, and I went hunting in Fangshan, Nanjing, China. Since nighttime hunting was involved, we chose the Wildguarder brand from Shenzhen, China. During this hunt, I tested the Owler1 Night Vision Binoculars based on my actual use experience and learned about the local customs and cuisine.
Fangshan is a beautiful national forest park located in the Jiangning District of Nanjing and a great place for hunting. It has abundant wildlife resources such as wild boars, deer, rabbits, foxes, and birds. Since we all love hunting, we decided to spend an unforgettable hunting trip in Fangshan.
We booked an accommodation called “Fangshan Forest Residence” online in advance. It is a wooden cabin-style accommodation located at the foot of Fangshan Mountain. The surroundings were peaceful, and the facilities were complete. They even provided firearms, ammunition, and guide services for hunting. We arrived at the accommodation in the afternoon and eagerly picked up our Owler1 Night Vision Binoculars, which are professional night vision binoculars that can clearly observe targets in the dark.
Owler1 Night Vision Binoculars are a high-performance night vision device produced by Wildguarder in Shenzhen, China. It has the following features:
- Can be used during the day and night
- Can clearly see objects within 500 meters in complete darkness
- Supports 20x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom
- Has photo, video, and playback functions
- Built-in 2-inch TFT display
- Supports USB and HDMI output
- Stored in a micro SD card
We were all very satisfied with these night vision binoculars as they made hunting at night safer and more convenient. According to the guide’s arrangement, we set off in the evening and went to a hunting point deep in Fangshan. We walked along the mountain road, enjoying the beautiful scenery of Fangshan and feeling the breath of nature. We also met some friendly local villagers who greeted us and introduced us to local customs, cuisine, and more.
We found a concealed location near the hunting point and began to wait for the right opportunity. We put on our Owler1 Night Vision Binoculars, and through them, we could clearly see the environment and animals around us. We found small animals such as rabbits, deer, and pheasants, but we did not shoot easily because we wanted a bigger challenge. Soon, we heard a group of wild boars approaching, and we became vigilant because wild boars are very fierce and dangerous animals. We used Owler1 Night Vision Binoculars to locate the wild boars moving towards us and quickly prepared for the best shooting opportunity. When the wild boars entered our shooting range, we simultaneously fired and hit several wild boars. We were happy to run over and check our results, finding that we had killed three wild boars, including a huge male boar weighing at least 200 pounds. We felt proud of our success and satisfied with our skills. We tied up the wild boars with rope and dragged them back to the accommodation.
After returning to the accommodation, we handed over the wild boars to the owner, who happily accepted them and prepared a sumptuous dinner for us. The dinner included the wild boar meat we caught and some local specialties such as Fangshan chicken, Fangshan mushrooms, and Fangshan tofu. These foods were made from natural ingredients in Fangshan, tasted delicious, and were nutritious. We ate and chatted, exchanged hunting experiences and insights with the owner, and learned about Fangshan’s history and culture. The owner told us that Fangshan is a place with a long history and splendid culture. It was once the palace of Emperor Xiao Yan of the Liang Dynasty in Southern China and the hometown of the famous painter Shen Zhou in the Ming Dynasty. Fangshan also has many historical sites and scenic spots, such as Liangwang City, Shen Zhou’s Tomb, and Fangshan Temple. The owner also recommended some worth-visiting attractions and invited us to go hunting again the next day. We thanked the owner for his hospitality and accepted his invitation. After eating and drinking, we returned to our room, put the Owler1 Night Vision Binoculars on the bedside, and reviewed today’s experience, feeling very fulfilled and happy. We all thought that this was an unforgettable hunting trip that not only tested an excellent night vision device but also experienced a different culture and lifestyle. We looked forward to tomorrow’s adventure and more surprises and harvests.
