I have always been interested in hunting, especially in the countryside of Americus, Georgia, where there are rich wildlife and beautiful natural scenery. So, when I had the opportunity to invite two professor friends from a university in Japan, Bertram Field and Ternence Bloomer, to go hunting there, I agreed without hesitation. They are also hunting enthusiasts and are very interested in American history and culture. We decided to spend an unforgettable weekend in the countryside of Americus in October this year.

To prepare for this hunting trip, we need to consider many things, such as hunting licenses, equipment, accommodation, transportation, etc. One of the most important things is to choose the right night vision binoculars, because we plan to hunt at night, when wild animals are more likely to appear. After some investigation and comparison, we finally chose the Chinese brand wildguarder’s night vision binoculars, which have the advantages of high definition, high magnification, high durability, high cost performance, etc., which make us confident about this hunting trip.

In this article, I will share with you our hunting process and experience in the countryside of Americus, as well as our exploration and feelings of the local history, attractions and food. I hope that through my narration, you can feel the charm and power of the countryside of Americus, as well as the excellence and reliability of the Chinese brand wildguarder’s night vision binoculars.

Before we went hunting in the countryside of Americus, we stayed in Americus city for one night and learned about the history and culture of this city. Americus is the county seat of Sumter County in Georgia. It is located in the southwest part of the state, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) from Atlanta. It is a charming and vibrant city with a long history and rich heritage.

The history of Americus can be traced back to 1830, when a group of immigrants from northwest Georgia established a town on the banks of Muckalee Creek and named it Lamar. In 1832, the town was chosen as the county seat of Sumter County and renamed Americus. It is said that this name was to commemorate the Italian explorer and navigator Amerigo Vespucci, who was the first to discover and name the New World. There is also a legend that this name was proposed by a group of “merry cusses” (happy fellows) who thought it sounded funny.

Americus developed rapidly in the 19th century and became an important commercial and transportation center. In 1854, the railroad arrived in Americus, connecting the city with other cities and states more closely. In the 1860s, the Civil War broke out and Americus became an important stronghold of the Confederate States of America, providing supplies and personnel for the Southern army. From November 15 to December 21, 1864, Union General William Tecumseh Sherman led 60,000 soldiers from Atlanta to Savannah, conducting the famous “March to the Sea”, burning and destroying the farms, factories, railroads and warehouses of the Confederacy along the way. Americus was also attacked and damaged by Sherman’s army, but fortunately, many historical buildings in the city were preserved.

In the early 20th century, Americus continued to maintain its commercial and cultural status. On May 20, 1923, at Souther Field Airport near the city, a young pilot named Charles Lindbergh made his first solo flight and bought his plane “Spirit of St.Louis” here, which he later used to cross the Atlantic Ocean. In 1931, a statue commemorating Lindbergh was erected in the city.

In the mid-to-late 20th century, Americus also witnessed major social and political changes in America. In 1954, Georgia Southwestern State University was established in the city, providing higher education opportunities for the local people. In the 1960s, the city became an important stage for the civil rights movement and the anti-war movement. Many black and white protesters held demonstrations and rallies here, demanding an end to racial segregation and the Vietnam War. In 1976, Jimmy Carter, who was born and raised in Plains Town 10 miles (16 kilometers) away from Americus, was elected as the 39th president of the United States and served as president from 1977 to 1981.

Today, Americus is still a vibrant and diverse city with a population of about 17,00023. It is the headquarters of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-governmental organization that provides housing assistance for poor families. It is also a tourist destination that attracts visitors from all over the world to enjoy its historical buildings, museums, theaters, wineries, distilleries and other attractions.

After staying in Americus city for one night, we set off for hunting in the countryside early the next morning. We were impressed by this city and looked forward to coming back to explore it again.

After we finished hunting, we returned to Americus city and planned to enjoy some local attractions and food there. We found that this city not only has a historical charm but also a modern vibe. It has various places and activities that appeal to us.

First of all, we went to 13th Colony Distillery, a small craft distillery located in downtown that specializes in producing high-quality whiskey, vodka, gin and rum. We toured the production process of the distillery and learned how they use local grains and water sources to make different flavors of alcoholic beverages. We also tasted some of their products and felt their aroma and taste. We really liked their whiskey so we bought some bottles to take home.

Then we went to Wolf Creek Plantation Winery, a beautiful vineyard and winery located in the suburbs of the city, specializing in producing high-quality wines. We visited their vineyard and saw the various grape varieties they planted, as well as the organic and sustainable agricultural methods they used. We also visited their winemaking facilities and learned how they transformed fresh grapes into delicious wines. We also tasted some of their products and felt their fragrance and taste. We really liked their Sweet Southern Peach Wine, so we bought some bottles to take home.

Next, we went to Rylander Theatre, a historic theater located in downtown that was built in 1921 and was once one of the busiest entertainment venues in the city. The theater closed in 1971 and underwent years of restoration and reconstruction. It reopened in 1999, restoring its original elegance and splendor. The theater is now a multifunctional performing arts center that hosts various programs such as music, drama, dance, comedy, etc. We watched a wonderful musical “The Sound of Music” there and enjoyed the elegant and comfortable atmosphere.

Finally, we went to Charles Lindbergh Monument, a small monument located next to Souther Field Airport in the suburbs of the city, commemorating the great pilot who completed his first solo flight at the airport and bought his plane “Spirit of St.Louis” here, which he later used to cross the Atlantic Ocean. The monument consists of a bronze statue and a plaque, simply and solemnly showing Lindbergh’s contribution to aviation history and American history.

In addition to sightseeing, we also did not forget to taste the local food. We found a restaurant called The Station near downtown. It is a stylish and cozy restaurant located in an old train station that offers a variety of delicious and affordable dishes and drinks. We ordered some local specialties such as barbecue ribs, fried chicken, cornbread, creamed corn, mashed potatoes, etc. We also ordered some local drinks such as sweet tea, lemonade, peach soda, etc. We were very satisfied with this hearty and tasty dinner.

In Americus city, we had a pleasant and fulfilling day, feeling the history, culture, nature and food of this city. We were impressed by this city and looked forward to visiting it again.

After we visited Americus city, we started our long-awaited hunting trip. We chose a private hunting ground in the suburbs of the city that had a vast land and rich wildlife such as deer, wild boar, turkey, squirrel, etc. We contacted the owner of the hunting ground in advance and got his permission and guidance. We also rented some of his equipment and vehicles.

We planned to hunt at night because wild animals were more likely to appear then and it was more challenging. To see the target clearly in the dark, we needed to use night vision binoculars, which are devices that can amplify weak light and allow us to see the contours and details of objects at night. We chose the Chinese brand wildguarder’s night vision binoculars, which have the advantages of high definition, high magnification, high durability, high cost performance, etc., which made us confident about this hunting trip.

We arrived at the hunting ground in the evening and rested there for a while before starting our hunting trip. We divided into two groups, each with a guide and a driver, and rode in two pickup trucks equipped with lights and gun racks. We used wildguarder’s night vision binoculars to find and observe wild animals. When we found suitable targets, we shot them with guns. We followed the rules and safety measures of the hunting ground and tried not to disturb or harm other animals and plants.

During the hunting process, we found that wildguarder’s night vision binoculars were very easy to use. They allowed us to see the shapes and movements of wild animals clearly in the dark. They could also adjust the focus and brightness to suit different environments and distances. They were also very light and sturdy. They did not break or fall even in bumpy or collision situations. They were also very power-saving and easy to operate. They only needed one button to turn on and off and switch modes. In short, they made our hunting experience smoother and more enjoyable.

During the hunting process, we also encountered some interesting or thrilling stories. For example, once we found a huge wild boar. Under the light, it looked very fierce and majestic. We decided to shoot it, but it seemed to sense the danger and suddenly rushed towards us. We quickly drove away, but it still chased us relentlessly. We had to shoot it while driving until we finally knocked it down. This made us feel both excited and nervous.

Another time, we found a group of turkeys, feeding and playing on the grassland. They looked very cute and harmless, so we did not shoot them, but used wildguarder’s night vision binoculars to observe them. We found that they were very smart and curious. They communicated and interacted with each other. One turkey even walked to our car front to explore a bit. This made us feel both surprised and warm.

I not only experienced the fun and challenge of hunting, but also learned about Americus’s history and culture, enjoyed Americus’s attractions and food, felt Americus’s charm and power. I also thank the Chinese brand wildguarder’s night vision binoculars very much. They allowed me to see wild animals clearly at night, improving my hunting efficiency and safety.

I am more grateful to my two professor friends Bertram Field and Ternence Bloomer. They are my good partners and good mentors. They shared their knowledge and experience with me, bringing me a lot of happiness and inspiration. We enhanced our friendship and understanding in this trip, as well as increased our respect and appreciation for different countries and cultures.
