I am a person who loves outdoor sports and exploration. I have two like-minded friends, Berg Richard and Jack Whit. We often travel and hunt together in different places, enjoying the charm and challenges of nature. Last week, we decided to go hunting in Xianyu Mountain, Shitai County, Chizhou City, Anhui Province, China. This is a beautiful place with beautiful scenery and a long history, and it is also the west branch of Huangshan Mountain. We brought our guns and equipment, as well as an essential tool, the night vision binoculars. Because we planned to hunt at night when animals are more active and easier to approach. We chose the Wildguarder owler1 night vision binoculars from a brand in Shenzhen, China. It has clear vision, powerful functions, and durable quality, which makes it our reliable assistant. In this article, I will share with you our hunting experience in Xianyu Mountain, as well as our feelings about the local customs and cuisine.
Xianyu Mountain is a national AAAA-level tourist scenic spot located in Shitai County, Chizhou City, Anhui Province, and is the west branch of Huangshan Mountain. The main peak of Xianyu Mountain is 1376 meters above sea level, which is the fourth highest peak in southern Anhui. Xianyu Mountain has the natural attributes of southern Anhui landscape and the cultural characteristics of Huizhou, and it also has the fairy aura of mythical legends. It is said that this was the place where Seven Fairy Maidens descended to earth, so it was named Xianyu Mountain. Xianyu Mountain has rich natural landscapes and cultural attractions, such as the Millennium Ancient Huizhou Road, Selenium-rich Village, Colorful Jade Valley, Guanyin Hall, etc. We chose to hunt in the main peak scenic area of Xianyu Mountain, where there are beautiful scenery such as peaks, deep valleys, ancient roads, waterfalls, etc., as well as precious and rare animal and plant resources. We arrived at Xianyu Mountain scenic area on Friday afternoon and stayed in a farmhouse near the foot of the mountain, prepared some food and water, as well as our night vision binoculars and guns. We planned to start hunting on Saturday night and continue until Sunday morning.
Night vision binoculars are our essential tool for hunting. It allows us to see the location and movement of animals in the dark and avoid some dangers. We chose the Wildguarder owler1 night vision binoculars, which is a brand from Shenzhen, China, and has many advantages. First, it has a clear field of view, which can see objects 200 meters away in the absence of moonlight, and can see objects 500 meters away in the presence of moonlight. Second, it has powerful functions, which can take photos and videos, and can also connect to mobile phones or tablets through Wi-Fi for real-time viewing or playback. Third, it is durable and can withstand harsh environments such as water, dust, and vibration, and can also work normally in a temperature range of -30℃ to 60℃. Before hunting, we carefully adjusted our night vision binoculars to ensure that they could operate normally. We also learned some usage tips and precautions, such as how to adjust the focus, brightness, and contrast, how to save and transmit data, how to protect and clean equipment, etc. We are very satisfied with this night vision binoculars and feel that it is our best partner for hunting. On Saturday night, we brought our night vision binoculars and guns and started our hunting trip. We walked up the ancient Huizhou Road, enjoying the night scenery of Xianyu Mountain and carefully observing the surroundings. Our night vision binoculars allowed us to see clearly in the dark and made us feel safe. We found a suitable place on the mountain, built a simple tent, and prepared to rest for a while. At this moment, we heard the sound of an animal, like a wild boar or a wolf. We immediately picked up our night vision binoculars and guns and quietly approached the direction of the sound. We used the night vision binoculars to search and found a group of wild boars eating grass. We decided to try hunting, so we dispersed and found a suitable shooting position. We aimed at the target with the night vision binoculars, and gently pulled the trigger. We heard the sound of the gun and the screams of the wild boars, and then saw several wild boars fall to the ground. We ran over excitedly, confirmed our harvest, and took several photos with the night vision binoculars and recorded a video with our mobile phones, recording this unforgettable moment. We dragged the wild boars back to the tent and prepared to process them the next morning. We felt excited but tired, so we went back to the tent and slept.
In addition to the pleasure of hunting, we also experienced the local customs and cuisine. Xianyu Mountain is located at the junction of Shitai, Qimen, and Dongzhi counties in Anhui Province and is the west branch of Huangshan Mountain. It has the natural attributes of southern Anhui landscape and the cultural characteristics of Huizhou. Xianyu Mountain, as the name suggests, is the mountain where immortals live, where strange celestial phenomena such as “Seven Fairy Maidens descending to earth” have occurred. It not only has beautiful scenery but also has a long history and culture. We visited the Jugen Pass Ancient Huizhou Road, a national key cultural relic protection unit that was founded in the Tang Dynasty and is still well-preserved today, and felt the diligence and wisdom of ancient Huizhou merchants. We also tasted local specialties such as selenium-rich tea, stone ear, lily, fern, and other mountain delicacies, as well as traditional snacks such as Xianyu cake, butter cake, and glutinous rice cake, which made us enjoy a feast. We also stayed in a local farmhouse and experienced the fun of rural life and felt the warmth and friendliness of the locals.
Through this Xianyu Mountain hunting trip, we not only harvested a lot of prey but also enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Xianyu Mountain, experienced the local customs and cuisine, and felt the magical charm of the mountain where immortals live. Xianyu Mountain is a tourist destination worth visiting, with rich natural resources and cultural heritage that make people linger. We left a deep impression and good evaluation of Xianyu Mountain and looked forward to our next trip.
