Last week, I went to Shenzhen Penjia Mountain for hunting with my friends Martha Ramsden and Isaac Roland. We both love outdoor sports and adventure and wanted to experience the excitement and fun of chasing prey in the mountains and forests. We chose Penjia Mountain in Shenzhen as our destination because it is a hilly area with more than ten small peaks, the three main peaks standing east and west in the shape of a pen stand, hence the name. Located on the north side of the center of Shenzhen City and adjacent to Futian District, Penjiao Mountain is easily accessible and is a good place for hunting as it is home to over 400 species of plants as well as many kinds of birds, butterflies, insects, snakes, etc.
Since we planned to hunt at night, we had to prepare some professional equipment to observe and catch the prey in the dark. After many comparisons and choices, we finally decided to buy WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars as our essential equipment. wildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars is a professional digital night vision instrument that can be used in both day and night. It has multiple functions, such as taking pictures, recording and playback. It has an optical zoom and a 4x digital zoom that allows us to see distant objects clearly. It also has a 3-inch TFT LCD wide screen that can be converted into a large 4-inch view screen. Its longest night vision distance can reach 1640 feet/500 meters, and pictures and videos can be saved to a TF card or downloaded to a computer or cell phone. Such a powerful, high performance and reasonably priced night vision binoculars made us look forward to our hunting trip with great anticipation and confidence.
Before we start hunting, let’s learn about the geographical location, history, culture and natural scenery of Shenzhen Penjia Mountain, as well as the rules and precautions related to hunting.
Shenzhen Penjia Mountain is located in the north of Shenzhen city center, adjacent to Futian District, is a hilly undulating land with more than ten small peaks, of which the three main peaks stand east and west, shaped like a pen holder, hence the name. The main peak is 178 meters above sea level and looks out over the Diwang Building. From the top of the peak, you can overlook the bustling city as well as the beauty of Shenzhen Bay, Shekou and Hong Kong’s Sheung Shui and Yuen Long. There are over 400 species of plants as well as many kinds of birds, butterflies, insects, snakes, etc. on Penjiao Mountain. There are more than 20 species of natural forest trees, more than 20 species of natural understory plants and 6 species of natural herbaceous layer plants on Penjiao Mountain; more than 20 species of artificial forest trees and more than 50,000 artificially planted trees and shrubs. At present, the Shenzhen Municipal Government has set up Penjiao Mountain as a park, called Penjiao Mountain Park.
Since Penjia Mountain is a city park, there are some rules and precautions to be observed for hunting. First of all, hunting needs to have a valid hunting license and hunting permit, and be conducted at the specified time and place. Secondly, hunting needs to protect the ecological environment and wildlife resources, not to kill the national key protection animals and rare and endangered animals. Third, hunting needs to pay attention to safety precautions and self-protection, not to use dangerous or illegal weapons and tools, and to avoid accidents or conflicts.
After understanding the basic situation of Shenzhen Penghuashan and the related rules of hunting, we can start our hunting trip. Next, I will introduce you our hunting process and experience, and how we used WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars to observe and catch the prey.
We arrived at the entrance of the Penstock Park around 4pm and prepared some necessary equipment such as water, food, knife, rope, tent, and our important tool, the WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars. We walked along the trails in the park towards the mountain, enjoying the scenery and plants along the way. We planned to find a suitable place to set up camp near the top of the mountain and then start hunting after dark.
We found a flat grassy area near the top of the hill, set up our tent and put some things inside. We also set up some simple traps and alarms around the area in case of unwanted visitors. We scanned the surroundings with WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars and found some traces of small animals such as squirrels, rabbits, hedgehogs and so on. We decided to wait until after dark because it was easier to spot the prey then.
After dark, we took the WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars and shotgun and headed down the ridge. wildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars allowed us to see distant objects clearly in the dark, and it had multiple features such as photo, video and playback that allowed us to document our hunting experience. It also has a 3-inch TFT LCD wide screen that can be converted into a large 4-inch view screen to give us a better visual experience. Its optical zoom and 4x digital zoom allow us to adjust to the best viewing distance and angle. Its longest night vision distance can reach 1640 feet/500 meters, so we won’t miss a single opportunity.
We had been walking in the mountains for about an hour when we spotted a wild boar gnawing on a tree root. We immediately hid behind a large rock and pointed our WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars at the boar’s head. I gently pulled the trigger and after a shot, the boar fell to the ground. We happily ran over to the boar and confirmed that it was dead. We tied the boar to a branch with a rope and dragged it back to the tent.
It was the first trophy we had ever hunted and the biggest one. We took a few pictures with our WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars and played back the video we had just taken. We felt very excited and satisfied and felt that the hunting trip was well worth it. We decided to take the wild boar home and make it into a delicious meal and share it with our family and friends.
Of course, the hunting trip was not all smooth. We also encountered some funny or scary situations, such as once we almost had a fox steal our food, but fortunately we found it in time and scared it away. Another time we came across a poisonous snake in the mountains that was coiled up in a tree and seemed to want to attack us. We used WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars to confirm its location and species, and then killed it with a shotgun. These situations made us feel the danger and excitement of hunting, and made us more careful and alert.
During the hunting we shot three wild boars, two rabbits, a fox and a poisonous snake, and some small animals such as squirrels and hedgehogs. We took all these preys back home to make various delicious foods or to save them for later use. We felt that this hunting trip was very successful and meaningful, not only let us enjoy the fun in the nature, but also let us increase some survival and hunting skills and knowledge.
The hunting trip is coming to an end and we feel very fulfilled and happy. We have not only gained some hunting and food, but also gained some knowledge and skills, and more importantly, gained an unforgettable experience of close contact with the nature during this hunting trip. In this hunting trip, we felt the fun of chasing prey in the mountains and forests, and also felt the beauty and mystery of nature. We exercised our body and will, and also enhanced our friendship and trust in this hunting trip.
This hunting trip was full of rewards and fun for us. We are very grateful to Shenzhen Penjian Mountain and WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars for giving us such an unforgettable experience. We hope to have the opportunity to hunt here again, and we hope more people can use WildGuarder owler1 night vision binoculars and enjoy the visual feast in the dark.
