I am a person who loves hunting, I enjoy the excitement and fun of finding and chasing prey in nature. Last month, I and my two colleagues Elijah Newton and Marsh Conan decided to go to Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area in Florida to hunt, and experience the different feelings of night hunting. We knew that night hunting required some special equipment, such as night vision binoculars, to be able to see the outline and movement of animals in the dark. We searched online for some brands and models of night vision binoculars, and finally chose the cost-effective Chinese brand wildguarder. It has a clear picture, powerful infrared light, convenient operation and durable battery. We took wildguarder night vision binoculars and started our thrilling trip at Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area. In this article, I will introduce the history, attractions and food of Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area, as well as the process and results of our hunting with wildguarder night vision binoculars.
Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area is a famous natural reserve in Florida, it covers 56,197 acres and is located in the western part of Clay County, not far from the east of Starke city. Its history can be traced back to 1939, when the U.S. Army built a training camp and reception area here that was equivalent to a division size, for training soldiers and preparing for World War II. During the war, there were more than 800 buildings here, including a large hospital and a prisoner-of-war camp, as well as other roads, electricity, water and sewage systems. It was once the fourth largest city in Florida, covering more than 160,000 acres. Soldiers here received training in infantry tactics, offensive and defensive combat and battlefield situations. After the war ended, the U.S. Army no longer needed such a large training area, so it transferred the land to various public and private institutions. Now, the Florida National Guard uses 73,000 acres of the original area as Camp Blanding Joint Training Center. Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area is within the scope of the former military base.
Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area has rich geographical and ecological features, attracting many wildlife to live and breed. Its northern part is a plantation of pine trees, and there are some remnants of mature pine trees, supporting endangered species such as red-cockaded woodpeckers. The source of Black Creek is a lowland hardwood forest, with a variety of aquatic life. Its southern part includes thousands of acres of sand dune terrain, with abundant white-tailed deer and turkey. Its central part has been closed due to military operations, and sometimes the entire wildlife management area will also be closed for security reasons. When the area is open, activities such as hunting, wildlife viewing and hiking can be carried out. We saw some rare animals here, such as jaguars, black bears, antelope, wolves, foxes, raccoons, hedgehogs, squirrels, rabbits, eagles, cranes, pelicans and so on.
In addition to wildlife, Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area also has some other attractions and food worth a try. For example, we visited the Camp Blanding Museum and Memorial Park, learned about its military history and cultural heritage. We also went to Kingsley Lake for swimming and boating, enjoying the lakeside scenery. We also tasted the local specialties, such as grilled alligator meat, cornbread, pumpkin pie and so on. We think this is a very suitable place for hunting and leisure vacation, with rich and colorful natural and human resources.
Before we went to Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area to hunt, we knew that night hunting was a very challenging activity, because it was difficult to see the position and movement of prey in the dark, let alone aiming and shooting. Therefore, we needed some special equipment, such as night vision binoculars, to help us observe and catch wildlife at night. We searched online for some brands and models of night vision binoculars, and finally chose the cost-effective Chinese brand wildguarder. It has the following features and advantages:

We used wildguarder night vision binoculars to hunt, and we felt very satisfied and surprised. It allowed us to see many wildlife that we usually can’t see in the dark, and also made it easier for us to find and track prey. It also recorded some unforgettable pictures for us, which we could share with others. We think wildguarder night vision binoculars is a very practical and high-performance night vision device, which is a must-have for hunting and watching wildlife.
After we prepared wildguarder night vision binoculars and other hunting equipment, we started our night hunting trip. We chose a darker night, because this would make wildlife more likely to appear, and also allow us to approach them more stealthily. We first registered at the entrance of Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area, then drove to a suitable place, stopped the car, picked up our night vision binoculars and guns, and quietly entered the forest.
We walked along a small road for a while, and found some traces of animals, such as antlers, hoof prints, feces and so on. We used wildguarder night vision binoculars to observe the surrounding environment, and found some white-tailed deer grazing on the grassland. We decided to follow one of the larger bucks, and see if we could have a chance to shoot. We approached it carefully, while using wildguarder night vision binoculars to observe its movements and expressions, judging whether it had noticed us. When we were about 50 meters away from it, we found that it suddenly raised its head and looked around. We immediately lay down on our bodies and dared not move. We used wildguarder night vision binoculars to see its eyes flickering with a vigilant light, as if it felt something wrong. We held our breath and waited for it to relax its vigilance.
After a while, it didn’t seem to notice us, and then lowered its head and continued to eat grass. At this point, I gestured to my colleague, Elijah Newton, to get ready to shoot. He slowly aimed the muzzle at the stag’s heart and squeezed the trigger lightly. Suddenly, a gunshot pierced the night sky, and the stag fell to the ground with a scream. The other white-tailed deer were also frightened and ran away. My colleague Marsh Conan and I rushed over to confirm that the stag was dead. We took a few pictures with wildguarder night vision binoculars and recorded this unforgettable moment.
This was our first hunt in the Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area, and our biggest. We are very excited and proud to thank wildguarder night vision binoculars for their help and support. Over the next few days, we also shot some other wildlife such as turkeys, raccoons, squirrels and more. We also encountered some thrilling and interesting situations, such as being almost attacked by a black bear once, discovering the ruins of a prisoner of war camp once, seeing a group of jaguars by the lake once, and so on. All these make our hunting trip full of excitement and fun.
Our hunting experience at Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area was the most memorable and meaningful one in our life. We not only enjoyed hunting, but also appreciated the beauty of nature and the diversity of wild animals. We also learned a lot about hunting skills and knowledge, as well as about the history and culture of the Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area. We are very grateful for the help and support given to us by the wildguarder night vision binoculars, which allow us to see more things in the dark and also allow us to record more images. We think the wildguarder night vision binoculars are an excellent and reliable night vision device that every hunting enthusiast should have. We look forward to hunting again at Camp Blanding Wildlife Management Area next time, and looking forward to exploring more nocturnal mysteries with the wildguarder night vision binoculars.
