In October of this year, my three friends Francis Strachey, Charles Soph, and Ian Bill and I went hunting in Dasi Forest Park, Nanyang, Henan, China. We are a group of adventure and exploration enthusiasts who wanted to find some excitement and fun on this mysterious land. We chose the Wildguarder’s Owlery1 night vision binoculars, a professional night vision binocular that allowed us to observe the movements and characteristics of animals clearly in the dark. Through this hunting trip, we hope to test the performance and effectiveness of this product while also learning about the local customs, culture, and cuisine.
Dasi Forest Park is a national 2A-level scenic area located in Dacheng Mountain of Tongbai Mountain range, Fangcheng County, Nanyang City, Henan Province, 15 kilometers southeast of Fangcheng County. The forest coverage rate in the park is 95%, with a variety of lush and verdant trees. The forest types mainly include evergreen coniferous forests, deciduous broad-leaved forests, mixed forests of evergreen coniferous and deciduous broad-leaved, and various colorful shrub forests. There are also many natural and cultural landscapes in the park, such as strange peaks and stones, cliffs, streams, waterfalls, and ancient temples, which are breathtaking.
We rented an off-road vehicle locally and drove to the park along the provincial road Lu Yau Road. Along the way, we saw many rural landscapes and village homes, and felt the simplicity and friendliness of the locals. We also tasted some local specialties at roadside stalls, such as spicy soup and braised noodles, which were delicious and nutritious.
After arriving at the park, we first bought tickets at the scenic area ticket office for 60 yuan per person. Then we entered the park and began our adventure. We first came to Pu Yan Temple, which is a Buddhist holy site built in the Tang Dynasty and has a history of 1100 years. There are many stone inscriptions and Buddha statues left by literati and poets from various dynasties in the temple, and the atmosphere is solemn. We paid our respects in the temple and felt the profoundness of Buddhist culture.
Then we climbed up along the mountain path, enjoying the scenery along the way. We saw the Three Dragon Ponds (Black Dragon Pond, White Dragon Pond, and Green Dragon Pond), which are of various shapes, curved, undulating, and resemble a swimming dragon. We also heard the roaring sound of the flowing Yunfei waterfall, which is tall, spectacular, and has a drop of more than 40 meters, and smelled the fragrance of various plants such as pine forest and red leaves. We also encountered some wildlife, such as egrets, cormorants, huamei birds, and owls, playing and making various sounds in the forest, adding a lot of fun for us.
We finally reached the highest peak of the park, Shuangshan, with an altitude of 711.2 meters. The mountains here are magnificent and strange, with cliffs and precipices towering into the clouds. We climbed to the top and looked around, only to see mountains surrounding us and clouds shrouding us, as if we had entered a fairyland. We also saw other peaks such as Bailong Mountain, Niangniang Mountain, Huajian Mountain, and Dazhu Mountain, as well as unique landscapes such as the Jieyi Stone and Jinbei Moon, which were breathtaking.
By now it was getting late, so we decided to camp on the mountaintop for the night. We set up our tents on a flat spot and made a campfire. We took some food and drinks from the car and enjoyed a hearty dinner around the fire. We also took out our owler1 night vision binoculars and prepared to start our night hunting journey.
The owler1 night vision binoculars are a professional night vision telescope that allows us to observe the movements and characteristics of animals clearly in the dark. It has four modes: full darkness mode, low light mode, daytime mode, and recording mode. It also has a 4x zoom function, which allows us to observe targets up close. It also has a built-in 32GB storage card, which can store the photos and videos we shoot. It weighs only 750 grams, making it easy to carry.
We each took an owler1 night vision binoculars and walked in different directions, looking for traces of prey. Through the night vision binoculars, we saw many animals active at night, such as rabbits, wild boars, foxes, and deer. We chose suitable targets according to our own preferences and skills, and used guns or bows and arrows to shoot. We observed and recorded with the night vision binoculars before and after shooting, feeling the convenience and fun brought by night vision technology.
After a fierce night hunt, we harvested many prey and brought them back to the camp. We cleaned and roasted the prey with a campfire and seasoned them with some spices. We ate and chatted, sharing our own night hunting experiences and feelings. We all praised the Owler1 night vision binoculars by Wildguarder, thinking it is an excellent night vision product with outstanding performance, powerful functions, and simple operation, which is very suitable for outdoor hunting and exploration. We also used the night vision binoculars to take some photos and videos, recording our night hunting process and results, planning to share them with more friends when we go back.
After we ate and drank enough, we entered the tent and prepared to rest. We lay in our sleeping bags, listening to the sounds of the mountains and forests, feeling the charm of nature. We all felt that this was an unforgettable trip, not only experiencing the fun of wilderness survival but also feeling the local cultural charm. We are all curious and admiring of this magical country of China and hope to have the opportunity to explore more places.
This is the story of me and my friends hunting in Dasi Forest Park, Nanyang, Henan, China. With Wildguarder’s Owler1 night vision binoculars, we realized our night hunting dreams and also gained rare friendship and memories. If you also want to experience the excitement and fun of night hunting or want to learn more about Chinese customs and food, please contact us. We are happy to share our experiences and feelings with you.
