Last month, my two friends Ophelia Delia and Colin Bloor and I went hunting in Des Moines, the capital of Iowa in the United States. It was our first time visiting this city, and we were interested in its history, culture, and cuisine. We booked a comfortable hotel online and began our exploration.
Des Moines is a vibrant and charming city with many sights to see and activities to do. We visited the Capitol building to admire its magnificent architecture and exquisite decorations; we went to the Des Moines Art Center to appreciate various styles of art works and exhibitions; we also tasted local cuisine such as fresh bread and salad from Tangerine Cafe, as well as cheese platters with beer from The Cheese Shop.
Our most anticipated experience was night hunting. Due to poor visibility at night, we needed special equipment to help us detect and track animals. After searching for many brands online, we finally chose wildguarder infrared binoculars – a high cost-effective product from China that has many advantages and functions which made us confident about it.
Des Moines is not only the capital but also the largest city in Iowa state of USA – it’s a vibrant tourist destination where visitors can learn about its history, enjoy its attractions, taste its food specialties while experiencing night hunting.
The history of Des Moines dates back to early 19th century when it was originally inhabited by Native American tribes Sac & Foxes. In 1823 US Army established Fort Des Moines here for protecting trade & transportation routes which was abandoned later on in 1843 followed by European immigrants settling down here since 1846 onwards. In 1851 Des Moines became an official city & then eventually became Iowa’s capital in 1869.
Des Moines has many sights worth seeing, the most famous of which is the Capitol Building. Built in 1886 on a small hill in the city center, this Renaissance-style building features limestone and granite walls and a gold-leafed roof. The interior of the Capitol Building is decorated with exquisite murals, sculptures, and stained glass windows that showcase Iowa’s history and culture. The Capitol Building is open to the public for tours of its various rooms and exhibits.
In addition to the Capitol Building, Des Moines also has other attractions worth visiting such as Des Moines Art Center1, Pappajohn Sculpture Park, Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden4 etc. The Des Moines Art Center is a museum that collects and displays various works of art housed in three different buildings: modernist architecture designed by Eliot Noyes; postmodernist architecture designed by Richard Meier; and sculpture gardens designed by I.M. Pei. The museum houses works from famous artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Mondrian, Dali etc. Pappajohn Sculpture Park is located downtown showcasing about 30 contemporary sculptures created by artists including Claes Oldenburg & Coosje van Bruggen’s “Three-way Plug”, Jeff Koons’ “Balloon Dog” , Anish Kapoor’s “Cloud Gate” etc.. Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden covers an area of 14 acres (about 5.7 hectares) with a huge dome greenhouse and seven outdoor gardens featuring plants from around the world like cacti orchids bamboo roses etc.
Des Moines not only has rich history and culture but also delicious food options available . We tried various dishes here such as grilled corn , fried pork chops , cheese platters , pizza etc.. Our favorite was Tangerine Cafe which offers fresh breads salads soups desserts along with coffee tea varieties . We enjoyed a relaxed lunch here feeling welcomed by friendly locals .

We had an exciting hunting experience using Wildguarder infrared binoculars. Before setting off at night, we fully charged the binoculars and installed the memory card. We drove to a remote forest and found a suitable location to stop. We took out the binoculars and adjusted all parameters according to instructions in manual.We turned on the binoculars and observed our surroundings with it in front of our eyes. To our surprise, there were so many lives & movements in darkness that we could not see before! We saw various animals, some foraging, some resting, some mating…We used its photo-taking & video-recording functions to capture these precious moments.We also used its infrared illuminator feature which helped us discover hidden prey such as rabbits, foxes,& deer etc..We slowly aimed at them with guns then gently pulled triggers,enjoying the thrill of hunting.

Our night hunting trip was very successful, as we caught many animals and encountered some difficulties and surprises, which added to the fun and challenge of hunting. In this section, I will share our achievements and feelings, as well as the role and value of Wildguarder infrared binoculars.
We hunted in the forest for about two hours using Wildguarder infrared binoculars to observe and aim at many animals. We eventually caught several types of animals:
Rabbit: This was our first catch, also the easiest one. It hopped around in the grassy area making it easy to spot. We used the red light illuminator on our binoculars to light up its location before shooting it with a gun.
Fox: This was our second catch but also proved to be quite challenging since foxes are very alert creatures that run away at any sign of danger or disturbance. Using digital zoom function on our binoculars helped us get a closer look at it before taking aim with a gun when we found an appropriate opportunity.
Deer: This was by far most surprising catch since deer are not commonly seen during hunts like these due their elusive nature . When we spotted one through out binoculars ,we were amazed by its beauty – tall stature with long antlers- so much so that we took pictures before shooting it down.
We felt extremely satisfied with what we achieved during this hunt; proud even! Hunting gave us an adrenaline rush while allowing us intimate contact with nature’s wonders.We experienced various emotions throughout such as :
Fun: Hunting brought joy into each moment spent together where communication flowed freely between us. We laughed and joked while working together to achieve our goals.
Challenge: Hunting also presented us with many challenges such as finding targets, controlling hand tremors, judging distances, adjusting angles etc. We learned and improved continuously throughout the hunt.
Surprise: Hunting brought about unexpected surprises like discovering rare animals or witnessing amazing sights. It was a journey of exploration where we adapted to new situations as they arose.
