The night forest is always full of mystery and temptation, especially for those who like to hunt, night hunting waterfowl is a different kind of fun and challenge. Last month, I went with two friends, Ingemar Piers and Abner Bradley, to the Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area in Montana, USA, for an unforgettable night safari. In order to be able to observe and catch waterfowl in the dark environment, we chose the infrared binoculars of the Chinese brand WildGuarder, which made us feel the charm and convenience of night vision technology. In this article, I will detail the process, harvest and feelings of our night waterfowl hunt, as well as the local history, attractions and cuisine of the Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area, hoping to provide some useful information and suggestions for those who like to hunt.
Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area is a wetland management area in the U.S. state of Montana, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, located in the Flathead River Valley in northwestern Montana. It is one of the most important waterfowl habitats in the United States, attracting tens of thousands of migratory birds and waterfowl each year to breed, rest and winter. The history of the Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area dates back to the last century, when the U.S. government raised money by selling federal duck tickets to protect a number of threatened small wetlands and puddle areas known as Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs). These wetlands and meadows not only provide valuable habitat for wildlife, but also opportunities for recreation, recreation and education for local people.
We chose to hunt in the Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area because of its abundant waterfowl resources, including geese, ducks, swans, and chickens. These waterfowl are more active at night, so we decided to experience the fun of night hunting. Before going, we made thorough preparations and learned about the local climate, topography, regulations and precautions. We also booked a nearby hostel for us to rest and store our prey.
In addition to hunting, we visited some of the sights and food around the Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area. One of the most impressive was Flathead Lake, one of the largest freshwater lakes in North America, with clear turquoise waters and picturesque shores. We rented a small boat by the lake and enjoyed the sunset and the stars on the lake. We also tasted local specialties such as game burgers, grilled fish, cornbread etc, all very delicious.
In order to be able to hunt waterfowl at night, we needed a high-performance infrared binoculars that would allow us to clearly observe and aim at targets in complete darkness. After many comparisons and choices, we finally decided to buy WildGuarder, a Chinese brand of NB1 model infrared binoculars, which is a high-end product designed for night hunting, with the following features and advantages:
- It uses a highly sensitive CMOS sensor and a 5W Infared 850nm LED illuminator that allows us to observe and record images of large targets at a distance of up to 984 feet, even in total darkness.
- It comes with a 2.7-inch display that allows us to easily see (even with glasses) without always having to keep our eyes on the optical viewfinder. It combines an excellent all-optical system with a video camera, 3X digital zoom and 31mm eyepieces that allow us to quickly capture sharp photos or HD video.
- It has 3 zoom levels: 1X, 2X, and 3X. Plus, it can be used to shoot crisp images and videos up to 1920X1080 pixels. It also has 7 IR adjustment levels to adapt to different dark environments. It has 5 buttons and 10 languages to adjust multiple functions.
With the WildGuarder NB1 infrared binoculars, we felt very convenient and comfortable, and it gave us more confidence and fun in the night hunt. It is light in weight, small in size, simple in operation, long battery life, waterproof and dustproof, durable and fall-resistant, and is a cost-effective infrared binocular, which is recommended to friends who like night hunting.
Our hunting at the Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area was very exciting and fun, and we harvested a total of 8 geese, 12 ducks and 2 swans, which we observed and aimed at with the WildGuarder NB1 infrared binoculars. While we were hunting at night, we encountered some interesting or difficult situations, and once we saw a huge white object moving around the lake, and we thought it was a swan, so we quietly approached a little, ready to shoot. As a result, when we looked closely with the WildGuarder NB1 infrared binoculars, we found that it was not a swan, but a North American white bear! We were startled and quickly backed away, but fortunately the white bear did not find us, otherwise the consequences would be unimaginable.
Through this night waterfowl hunting trip, we not only harvested a lot of prey, but also gained a lot of knowledge and fun. We learned about the local history, sights and cuisine of the Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area, as well as the excellent performance and experience of the WildGuarder NB1 infrared binoculars. We believe that night hunting waterfowl is a very fun and challenging activity for those who like adventure and exploration. We are very grateful to Lafromboise Waterfowl Production Area and WildGuarder, a Chinese brand, for providing us with such an unforgettable opportunity to hunt waterfowl at night. We hope to come here again one day and continue to enjoy night hunting waterfowl.
