I have always enjoyed hunting because I feel it is a way to challenge myself and enjoy nature. Hunting, to me, is not only a form of entertainment, but also a way to protect wildlife and maintain ecological balance.
I have two good friends, Victoria Leonard and Kristin Wesley, who share the same hobby and philosophy as me. We often go hunting together in different places, exploring new scenery and experiencing new adventures.
Last month, we decided to go hunting in Curtis because we heard that there were many bears and deer there, and there was also a rich history and culture. We wanted to spend an unforgettable weekend there, not only fulfilling our hunting desires, but also enjoying the local scenery and cuisine.
Since we planned to hunt at night, we had to prepare night vision binoculars so that we could see our targets clearly in the dark. Night vision binoculars are equipment that uses infrared or low light amplifiers to enhance visible light, allowing us to see the outlines and eyes of animals at night.
In this article, I will share our process and experience of hunting in Curtis, as well as our feelings about playing and tasting local food there. Through my description, I hope you can feel our passion and happiness, and also understand the charm and features of Curtis.
To hunt at night, we had to prepare thoroughly. First, we had to understand the habits and characteristics of the animals we wanted to hunt, as well as local laws and regulations. We chose bears and deer as our targets because they were common in Curtis and active at night. We also checked the local hunting season and license requirements to ensure that we did not violate any rules.
Secondly, we had to choose suitable weapons and ammunition. We all chose rifles as our main weapon because they had a longer range and greater power. We selected different calibers and bullet types based on the size and skin thickness of our target animals. We also brought some handguns and knives as backup weapons in case of emergencies.
Finally, we had to choose suitable night vision devices and lighting tools. We all purchased night vision binoculars, which allowed us to see the outlines and eyes of our targets in the dark. We also brought some infrared or low light amplifiers to enhance visible light. We also prepared some flashlights and laser pointers to illuminate and mark our targets.
With these equipments, we could start hunting at night. We chose a night with a brighter moon, which could improve our visibility and accuracy. We also chose a location with a favorable wind direction to avoid being smelled or heard by animals. We also used some bait and calls to attract animals.
In this part, I introduced how we prepared the equipment needed for night hunting, especially night vision binoculars, and their roles and advantages. In the next part, I will describe our process and experience of hunting in Curtis.
After we prepared our night hunting equipment, we started our hunting trip. We drove to Curtis, enjoying the beautiful scenery and autumn colors along the way. We found a hotel in a small town, and then went to a local restaurant for a hearty dinner.
That night, we went to a hunting spot that we had previously selected according to our plan. It was an open grassland surrounded by some trees and small hills. We found a large tree by the edge of the grassland, mounted our night vision binoculars on our rifles, and climbed up the tree branches, waiting for the appearance of animals.
We sat quietly on the tree for about an hour, during which we used our night vision binoculars to observe the surroundings. We saw some small animals, such as rabbits and squirrels, but not the bears or deer we wanted. We decided to use some calls to attract their attention, so we used some simulators to make animal calls.
Soon, we heard some movement, as if something was moving on the grass. We immediately used night vision binoculars to look for the target, and found a large black bear walking towards us. We excitedly held our breath and waited for it to come into range. When it walked about 50 meters away from us, I made a gesture to my friend, indicating that we were ready to fire.
We simultaneously pulled the trigger and shot two bullets at the bear. We heard the bear let out a scream, and then fell to the ground. We quickly climbed down the tree, ran to the bear’s location, and confirmed that it was dead. We hugged each other happily, celebrating our success.
We used a rope to drag the bear to the car, and then put it in the trunk. We checked the bear’s body and found that it was a male black bear, weighing about 200 kilograms, with beautiful and smooth fur. We took some pictures with our camera as a souvenir.
In this section, I described our hunting process and experience in Curtis, including how we saw and shot a black bear. In the next section, I will introduce the local attractions we visited and the local food we tasted in Curtis.
On the second day of our hunting, we decided to visit some local attractions near Curtis and taste some local food. We asked for recommendations at the hotel’s front desk and then set off by car.
Our first stop was The Erickson Center for the Arts, an art center located on the shore of Curtis Lake, offering a variety of exhibitions and performances. We enjoyed the works of some local artists there, including painting, sculpture, and photography. We also watched a musical performed by local residents, which was very exciting.
Our second stop was Seney Wildlife Refuge, a 90,000-acre wildlife sanctuary offering a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, bird watching, skiing, and treasure hunting. We rented some bicycles there and rode along a circular bike path for about two hours. We saw many different types of birds such as cranes, geese, and eagles. We also saw some other animals such as beavers, raccoons, and moose.
Our third stop was Waterfront Park, a park located on the banks of the Curtis River, offering various recreational facilities such as picnic areas, children’s playgrounds, and fishing piers. We enjoyed a delicious picnic there, with food that we bought from a local bakery and grocery store. We also took a walk along the river, enjoying the beautiful scenery and fresh air.
In this section, I introduced the local attractions we visited and the local food we tasted in Curtis, as well as our evaluation and feelings about these experiences. In the next section, I will summarize our gains and feelings about this hunting trip to Curtis.
