Last month, I and two friends Bblythe Marcellus and PagRutherford decided to go hunting in the countryside at Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary in Belize, to experience the thrill and fun of tracking and killing wild animals in the dark. We knew this was one of the world’s most famous jaguar reserves, and one of Belize’s largest reserves, with a rich and diverse flora and fauna. We wanted to see some rare nocturnal animals here, such as owls, badgers, kinkajous, etc., and even have the chance to witness the jaguar. To achieve this goal, we had to have some professional equipment, such as night vision binoculars.

After searching online for many brands and models, we finally chose the Chinese brand wildguarder’s night vision binoculars. These binoculars have many advantages that make us very satisfied with them. First of all, they can provide clear images and videos in completely dark environments, and can observe targets up to 400 meters away. Secondly, they have various functions, such as taking photos, recording videos, playback, etc., and can also transfer data to computers or mobile phones via USB or SD card. Finally, they are very durable and portable, waterproof and shockproof, and have a battery life of up to 6 hours.

Our destination was Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary in Belize, a nature reserve located in the southern Stann Creek district, covering an area of about 400 square kilometers, and is part of the eastern Maya Mountains. This is the world’s first and most famous jaguar reserve, and one of Belize’s largest reserves. It has a rich and diverse flora and fauna, including more than 300 species of birds, such as parrots, toucans, eagles, owls, etc., as well as various mammals, such as jaguars, monkeys, badgers, kinkajous, otters, wild boars, deer, tapirs, etc.

We stayed here for three days and two nights, and we would go hiking at different times and routes every day to observe and photograph various animals. We would sometimes meet other tourists or guides who were very friendly and willing to share their experiences and knowledge. We would also rest and eat at the visitor center or forest cabins where there were clean water sources and sanitary facilities as well as some basic food and drink supplies.

What we looked forward to most was the moment of hunting at night, because that was when many nocturnal animals were active, and also the time when jaguars were most likely to appear. We would prepare our equipment before dusk every day, including night vision binoculars, flashlights, cameras, knives, etc., and then quietly advance along some more hidden and safe paths, looking for and tracking our targets of interest.
