Kota Tinggi is a historic and scenic town, located about 100 kilometers north of Singapore. It was once the capital of the old Johor Sultanate, and has many historical and cultural attractions. It is also a natural paradise, with spectacular waterfalls, charming fireflies, rich wildlife and delicious local food. We chose Kota Tinggi as our hunting destination, because it not only has a suitable environment and climate for hunting, but also is not too far from Singapore, making it convenient for us to travel back and forth.

Since we planned to hunt at night, we needed to prepare some necessary equipment, the most important of which was night vision binoculars. This device can help us see clearly in the dark, and improve our hunting efficiency and safety. After searching online, we decided to buy night vision binoculars from the Chinese brand wildguarder, because they have the advantages of high-cost performance, such as high definition, long distance, low power consumption, light weight and durability.

We found a suitable place near Kota Tinggi town and started our hunting adventure. We used night vision binoculars to find and observe animals, such as wild boars, deer, foxes, rabbits and so on. We found night vision binoculars very useful, they let us see clearly the shape and movement of animals, and also take pictures and videos. We also used some bait and sound to attract the attention of animals.

Hunting is a stimulating and challenging sport, it tests our patience, skills and courage. We felt a lot of fun and achievement in the hunting process, and also learned a lot about animals and nature. We eventually harvested a few preys, such as wild boars and deer, as a souvenir of our hunting trip.

The hunting trip in Kota Tinggi was a very memorable and meaningful experience, which let us not only enjoy the fun of hunting, but also appreciate the charm of Kota Tinggi. We have a deeper understanding and experience of Kota Tinggi’s history, attractions, food and nature, and also increased our knowledge and insight.
