My two good friends, Ryan Grote and Werner Pigou, share a passion for hunting. We often travel and seek adventure together. As experienced hunters, we enjoy seeking challenges and thrills in nature.
Last month, we decided to go hunting in the outskirts of Houston because we heard that there were beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife there. We wanted to experience what it was like to hunt under different environments and conditions, so we planned a night hunting trip. Knowing that night hunting is very dangerous and difficult, we needed some professional equipment to ensure our safety and efficiency.
After searching online for information and advice on night hunting, we discovered a Chinese brand called Wildguarder’s infrared binoculars. After reading its introduction and reviews, we found that it was perfect for our needs due to its many advantages such as high definition clarity, high magnification power, high sensitivity level, durability as well as portability. We believed it would be the perfect companion for our night hunting trip without hesitation; therefore three units were ordered immediately.
Upon receiving the goods from Wildguarder ,we couldn’t wait any longer before starting our journey into the outskirts of Houston at night.
The history and culture of Houston’s suburbs are richly diverse reflecting influences from different people groups throughout time periods past . At our chosen location for this hunt ,we could see traces of history along with cultural characteristics which gave us deeper understanding about this place while also showing respect towards it .
The earliest inhabitants of Houston’s suburbs were indigenous tribes such as Karankawa ,Atakapa,Akacosa,Bidai etc., who mainly lived by hunting,fishing,and farming while living harmoniously with nature.Their language ,art,reliigion,and traditions still have some remnants or influence today.
Houston’s outskirts were discovered and occupied by Spanish explorers and colonizers in the late 16th century, bringing European culture, religion, law, and technology to the area. This also led to conflicts and trade with Native Americans. The Spanish built churches, forts, towns, and ranches in Houston’s outskirts; some of which still exist or are protected.
In the late 18th century, American immigrants from southern slave states began pouring into Houston’s outskirts with cotton planting and slavery. They engaged in a series of wars and revolutions with Spaniards and Mexicans that ultimately led to the establishment of the Republic of Texas and its annexation by America. Houston’s outskirts played important roles in both the American Revolutionary War and Civil War witnessing bloodshed as well as heroism.
Houston’s outskirts experienced a tremendous change at the beginning of the 20th century when oil industry emerged. In 1901 near Spindletop on Houston’s outskirts was found an abundance of oil that triggered an oil boom attracting thousands seeking wealth & opportunity here. Soon after it became one of America’s most important centers for petroleum production & processing promoting development across various fields such as economy, transportation education & healthcare.
Houston’s suburbs entered another new era during mid-20th century -the rise of space exploration industry-. In 1961 NASA established Johnson Space Center on Houston’s suburbs serving as command center for US manned space program since then making it one among world’s advanced bases for aerospace technology & exploration participating in many major missions like Apollo Program ,Space Station Program,Mars Exploration Program etc.
The history & culture surrounding Houston suburbs make us feel their diversity& transformation inspiring our curiosity& admiration.
The natural scenery around Houston is very beautiful&spectacular allowing us to experience nature’s charm&power while hunting.Houston has diverse terrains&ecosystems including forests,mountains,lakes,rivers,&prairies providing us with rich&varied hunting grounds & experiences.
We first went to Armand Bayou Nature Center, a 2,500-acre nature reserve with tall grasslands, winding rivers and dense forests that are home to many wild animals. We rented some canoes there and quietly paddled along the river looking for our targets. We saw deer, foxes, raccoons, wolves and other animals feeding or resting on the banks sometimes even crocodiles swimming in water. We used our WildGuarder infrared binoculars to observe their behavior & habits then chose appropriate timing& location for shooting.We hunted there all day long and had quite a harvest.
The next day we went to Hermann Park,a 445-acre urban park featuring a beautiful lake an 18-hole golf course,a large outdoor theater,a mini train,&a children’s playground.There we planned to hunt some waterfowl such as ducks geese swans etc.We found a secluded spot by the lake using food as bait attracting waterfowl closer.We used our WildGuarder infrared binoculars to identify targets&distance then shot them with shotgun.Hunting here took half of our day but was also fruitful.
On the third day we went to Buffalo Bayou-a 52-mile-long river which is Houston’s main source of water supply & landscape.It has many bridges,parks,trails,&artworks,and is also home to many wildlife species.There we planned on hunting small mammals like squirrels,rabbits,hedgehogs etc.Walking along the riverbank using WildGuarder infrared binoculars searching for movements in trees or bushes then shooting them with small-caliber rifles.This hunting trip lasted half-day yielding good results too.
Wildlife scenery around Houston suburbs allowed us different pleasures&challenges while hunting also enabling us appreciate various landscapes&animals.
