Last month, I went hunting with two colleagues, Luther Mike and Diana Eugene, to Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park in Florida, because we heard that there were a lot of wildlife there and the scenery was beautiful. We planned to stay there for three days and two nights, exploring the park during the day and resting at the campsite at night.
Since we wanted to experience the joy of hunting at night, we needed some special equipment, such as infrared binoculars. After searching online, we chose the infrared binoculars from wildguarder, a Chinese brand, because they had a high cost-performance ratio and powerful functions. They could provide a clear view in complete darkness, and they could take photos and videos, as well as adjust the magnification and brightness. We thought these features were very useful for night hunting, so we ordered three pairs right away.
After receiving the goods, we couldn’t wait to set off. We drove to the entrance of the park, and then followed a five-mile road into the park. Along the way, we saw a vast prairie, just like the American Midwest in movies. We felt a sense of freedom and excitement, looking forward to the hunting trip that was about to begin.
When we arrived at the park, we first went to the visitor center, where there were some introductions and maps about the park. We learned that Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park was the largest dry prairie preserve in Florida, covering 54,000 acres, and was part of the headwaters of the Everglades River. The ecosystem here was shaped by periodic changes in flooding and fire, and there were many rare and endangered animals and plants, such as Florida grasshopper sparrows, crested eagles and burrowing owls. It was also an internationally recognized dark sky park, because there was no light pollution here, and you could see the pitch-black night sky and the Milky Way.
We were surprised to find that the history of this park was very rich and colorful. It used to be a grazing land for cattle brought by Spanish explorers, and also a home for ranchers in the style of the American Midwest. In the early 20th century, a railway was built here to attract investors to develop the land, but it was soon abandoned due to bankruptcy. During World War II, it was also used by the military as a training ground for B-17 bombers, dropping bombs of various sizes. It was not until 1997 that this land was acquired by the Florida state government and established Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park.
After we participated in the prairie sightseeing car tour, we returned to our campsite, ready to start the night hunting adventure. We set up our tents, checked our equipment, and waited for the night to fall. We planned to hunt in an open area in the park, where there were some legal hunting areas and some suitable prey, such as rabbits, raccoons, skunks and wolves.
After dark, we picked up our guns and wildguarder infrared binoculars and quietly walked towards our target location. We used wildguarder infrared binoculars to scan the surrounding environment and look for possible prey. This binocular allowed us to see clearly in the dark without emitting any light or sound that would disturb the animals. It also allowed us to adjust the magnification and brightness to suit different distances and conditions. It also allowed us to take photos and videos to record our hunting experience.
We soon found some traces of animals, such as ears, eyes or tails. We carefully approached them and then aimed at them with our guns. We tried to choose some parts that would not cause too much damage or pain, such as the head or heart. We also tried to avoid shooting some protected or endangered animals, such as deer, eagles or owls. We only shot a legal and reasonable amount that would not affect the ecosystem.
During the night hunting process, we felt a sense of tension and excitement, as well as a sense of harmony with nature. We used wildguarder infrared binoculars to enhance our visual ability and increase our safety and success rate. We did not encounter any danger or difficulty, just enjoyed an unforgettable night hunting trip.
After we completed the night hunting task, we returned to our campsite, ready to enjoy some leisure activities. We put the animals we shot in the refrigerator, planning to deal with them the next day. We put away our guns and wildguarder infrared binoculars and sat around the campfire. We roasted some marshmallows and sausages on the fire, drank some beer and coffee, and talked about some interesting topics. We also used wildguarder infrared binoculars to watch the night sky and found some constellations and planets. We felt very relaxed and happy.
The next morning, we got up very early, because we wanted to see the sunrise. We used wildguarder infrared binoculars to observe the eastern horizon, and saw a touch of red gradually turning into gold, and then the sun slowly rose, illuminating the entire prairie. We felt very shocked and wonderful. We took some photos and videos to record this unforgettable moment.
After breakfast, we started to deal with the animals we shot. We skinned them, cut the meat, cleaned, marinated, dried them and so on. We planned to take some meat home and leave some meat here for lunch. We used wildguarder infrared binoculars to check the quality and freshness of the meat, and found that they were all good. We also used them to observe whether there were any other animal or human activities around, just in case.
After finishing these work, we started to prepare lunch. We made some delicious dishes with wild animal meat, such as roasted rabbit, stewed raccoon, skunk soup and so on. We also used wild plants to make some salads and seasonings, such as wild celery, wild onion, wild garlic and so on. We also bought some local food, such as beef jerky, cornbread and juice. We used wildguarder infrared binoculars to observe the color and shape of the food, and found that they were all tempting. We found a shady place near the campsite, set up tables and chairs and utensils, and started to enjoy lunch.
This lunch was the most delicious and satisfying one in our hunting trip. We tasted different kinds and flavors of meat and plants, feeling the natural gift and richness. We also used wildguarder infrared binoculars to appreciate the scenery and animals on the prairie, feeling the natural beauty and vitality. We ate very happily and gratefully.
This night hunting trip was the most unforgettable and interesting one in my life with my colleagues. We experienced the history and features of the dry prairie at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park, saw many rare and beautiful animals and plants, and also enjoyed the wonders of the dark sky. We felt a sense of tension and excitement in the process of night hunting, as well as a sense of harmony with nature. We felt relaxed and happy in the leisure activities after hunting, as well as the natural gift and richness.
In this trip, our biggest helper was wildguarder infrared binoculars. It allowed us to see clearly in the dark without disturbing the animals. It also allowed us to take photos and videos to record our hunting experience. It also allowed us to adjust the magnification and brightness to suit different distances and conditions. It also observed whether there were any other animal or human activities around, etc. It was our best partner for night hunting, as well as our best tool for prairie exploration.
In conclusion, this night hunting trip gave us a lot of gains. We not only enjoyed the fun of hunting, but also enjoyed the beauty of the prairie. We not only enhanced our friendship with our colleagues, but also enhanced our awe of nature. We are very grateful to wildguarder infrared binoculars for providing us with so much help and convenience. We strongly recommend this binocular to anyone who likes night hunting or prairie exploration.
