I am a student at the University of Virginia, majoring in computer science. I like programming, as well as outdoor activities and exploring nature. My two good friends Berton Alerander and Marcia Cowper are also students of the same school and major, and we often study and play together. Last week, we decided to go night hunting in Monongahela National Forest, to experience a different adventure. Monongahela National Forest is a national forest in West Virginia, USA, with rich wildlife and beautiful scenery. We brought WildGuarder night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars, which are two types of night vision devices that allow us to observe and hunt animals in the dark. This article will introduce our experience and feelings of night hunting in Monongahela National Forest, as well as the local food and specialty dishes we tasted. I hope you will like our story and get some inspiration and fun from it.
Before we went night hunting in Monongahela National Forest, we needed to prepare some necessary equipment, the most important of which were night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars. These two devices allow us to observe and record distant targets in the dark, improving our night hunting efficiency and safety. Below, I will introduce the WildGuarder night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars we used, as well as their features and advantages.
WildGuarder night vision binoculars are a professional night vision binoculars that use advanced digital technology to provide high-definition images and videos in the dark. It has the following features:
- 4-inch screen, which allows us to clearly see the details of the target.
- Powerful infrared illuminator, which can illuminate the target in complete darkness, allowing us to see objects within 300 meters.
- 32GB memory card, which can store high-definition pictures and videos.
- Adjustable magnification, Optical Zoom: X20, Digital Zoom: 4X.
- Waterproof and shockproof design, which can adapt to various harsh weather and terrain. We don’t have to worry about it being damaged by rain or falling.
Infrared binoculars are a type of night vision device that uses infrared light to amplify existing light, providing clear images in low-light conditions. It has the following features:
- Binocular field of view, which allows us to see a wider and more stereoscopic view.
- Automatic gain control, which automatically adjusts the brightness and contrast of the image according to the changes in ambient light.
- Multi-coated lenses, which reduce eye fatigue and glare.
- Lightweight and comfortable design, which allows us to wear it for a long time without feeling burdened or uncomfortable.
By using WildGuarder night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars, we can observe and hunt animals in the dark, enjoying the excitement and fun of night hunting. These two devices are indispensable partners in our night hunting activities.
After we prepared the night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars, we started our Monongahela National Forest night hunting trip. We arrived at the edge of the forest by car at night, and then walked into the forest. We took out WildGuarder night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars, and started looking for prey. We saw all kinds of animals, chose some suitable targets, and shot them with firearms or bows and arrows. The whole process was thrilling and tense.
We first saw a group of deer; they were leisurely eating grass in the forest. We used WildGuarder night vision binoculars to observe their location and number, and then used infrared binoculars to confirm their body temperature and movement status. We decided to shoot one of the larger bucks, as our first prey. We quietly approached them, found a suitable shooting angle and distance. I took out my rifle, aimed at the buck’s heart, and gently pulled the trigger. I heard a crisp gunshot, and then saw the buck fall to the ground, and the other deer ran away in panic. I ran over happily, checked my prey. It was a strong and beautiful animal, with dense fur and huge antlers. I tied it to my backpack with a rope, ready to take it back.
Then we saw a fox, it was looking for food in the forest. It had red fur and pointed ears, very cute. We used infrared binoculars to observe its whereabouts, and then used WildGuarder night vision binoculars to record its image. We decided not to shoot it, but to take some videos as a souvenir. We followed it, saw how it caught mice and frogs, and how it avoided other predators. We felt its intelligence and agility, and also appreciated its survival skills. We sent the video to our friends and family with our phones, so they could also see this cute animal.
Finally, we saw a raccoon, it was looking for garbage in the forest. It had black and white fur and eyes like wearing a mask, very interesting. We used WildGuarder night vision binoculars to observe its actions, and then used infrared binoculars to check if it carried rabies or other diseases. We decided to shoot it, as our last prey. We equipped a poisoned arrowhead with a bow and arrow, aimed at the raccoon’s head, and then released the bowstring. I saw the arrow fly towards the raccoon, and then pierced its skull, killing it instantly. I walked over carefully, put it in a plastic bag, preventing its blood and body fluids from contaminating our other items.
We night hunted in Monongahela National Forest for about three hours, captured three animals, very excited and satisfied, but also felt very tired and hungry. Decided to go back to our car, drive to a campsite in the forest. We set up tents there, lit a bonfire, ready to use our prey to make a hearty dinner. We sat down by the bonfire, shared our night hunting experience and feelings. We felt this was an unforgettable adventure trip that enhanced our friendship, expanded our horizons, exercised our bodies, and experienced the beauty of nature. We thank WildGuarder night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars for providing us with powerful night vision capabilities that allow us to safely carry out night hunting activities in the dark.
