Some people may ask, why go to Meizhou, Guangdong, China for hunting? In fact, this place not only has beautiful scenery, but also rich wildlife resources, making it a paradise for hunting enthusiasts. However, to enjoy hunting here, an important equipment is necessary – a night vision binoculars. Because many prey here are active at night, it is difficult to detect their tracks without night vision devices. And we chose the Wildguarder owler1 night vision binoculars this time, because it has many advantages that other brands do not have.
Firstly, it has 20x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom, allowing us to observe distant targets clearly in the dark. It also has a 2-inch high-definition screen that allows us to view the picture in real time and store it on a TF card. This way, we can replay the exciting moments we captured at any time and share our hunting experience with friends.
Secondly, it has a night vision distance of 500 meters, which other brands cannot match. It uses LED lights with a wavelength of 850nm as an auxiliary light source, which can provide enough brightness in complete darkness and not expose our position. It also has a wide dynamic range and wide field of view, which allows us to see clear, natural, and realistic images under different lighting conditions.
Finally, it also has excellent durability and portability. It has a waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof design that can adapt to various harsh environments. It also comes with a comfortable neck strap and a sturdy backpack that allows us to carry and protect it easily. In short, the Wildguarder owler1 night vision binoculars is a product with outstanding performance, powerful functions, easy operation, and reasonable price, and it is an indispensable partner on our hunting trip.
Since we have chosen the Wildguarder owler1 night vision binoculars as our hunting equipment, we need to find a suitable place to use it. We chose Meizhou, Guangdong, China, which not only has rich wildlife resources, but also beautiful scenery and unique Hakka culture. Meizhou is known as the “World Hakka Capital” and is one of the four major Hakka villages in China. It is also the hometown of Marshal Ye Jianying and has a long history and colorful culture.
Meizhou has many scenic spots worth visiting, such as the Qiaoxiang Village in Nankou Town, which is known as “the first ancient Hakka village in the world”. It has a history of more than a hundred years and retains many ancient buildings and folk customs, allowing us to feel the simplicity and diligence of the Hakka people. There is also the Yannanfei Tea Field Scenic Area, which is the largest organic tea garden in China, covering nearly 10,000 acres. The tea garden has various tea tree varieties, allowing us to taste different tea aromas and flavors. There is also the Hakka Weilong House, which is a unique Hakka architectural form. It is a large-scale residential building made of adobe that can accommodate dozens or even hundreds of households, and is a symbol of the Hakka people’s resistance to external enemies and maintaining unity.
Meizhou’s cuisine is also not to be missed. It is the hometown of Hakka cuisine in China, which is known for its original flavor, lightness, freshness, and nutrition. For example, Hakka salt-baked chicken is a chicken dish marinated with salt, ginger, garlic, and other seasonings, and then baked in a sand pot. The meat is tender, juicy, and fragrant. There is also Hakka stuffed tofu, a dish made by filling tofu with pork, shiitake mushrooms, dried shrimp, and other fillings, and then stewed in soup. The tofu is smooth and fragrant, and the filling is delicious. There is also Hakka lei cha fan, a main dish made by grinding peanuts, sesame seeds, tea leaves, and other ingredients into a soup, and mixing it with rice, vegetables, and beans. It is both healthy and delicious.
In addition to having advanced night vision binoculars, we also have an important reason for choosing to hunt in Meizhou, Guangdong, China, and that is the scenery and cuisine. Meizhou is the “Hakka Capital of the World” and the hometown of the Hakka people. It is also an excellent tourist city in China with rich natural and cultural resources. We enjoyed the quaintness of Qiaoxiang Village in Nankou Town, the picturesque Yannanfei Tea Plantation, the magnificent Hakka Walled Dragon Houses, and the deliciousness of Hakka cuisine.
Nankou Town Qiaoxiang Village is known as the “Number One Ancient Village in the Hakka World” and is a well-preserved Hakka village from the Ming and Qing dynasties. There are ancient silver apricot trees, ancient docks, and Yuanqiu Pagoda, as well as Hua’elou, a temple built during the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty. Hua’elou is a popular attraction in Meizhou. It uses a wooden and stone structure without nails and has a unique shape, symbolizing the unity and harmony of the Hakka people. We felt the simplicity and tradition of the Hakka people here.
Yannanfei Tea Plantation is a scenic area that integrates tea culture, eco-tourism, and leisure vacation. It has thousands of acres of tea gardens that are evergreen all year round. In spring, the mountains are full of flowers; in summer, they are lush; in autumn, they are golden; and in winter, they are silver. We admired the beauty of the tea garden, visited the tea museum, and tasted authentic Hakka lei cha and Yannanfei tea. Lei cha is a specialty drink of the Hakka people. The tea leaves, peanuts, sesame seeds, and other ingredients are ground into a paste with a stone mortar, and then mixed with boiling water and rice. Yannanfei tea is one of the top ten famous teas in China, with a clear and mellow taste and a sweet aftertaste.
The Hakka Walled Dragon Houses are a unique architectural form of the Hakka people. They are large square houses built to resist external enemies and wild animals. Meizhou has many walled dragon houses, among which the most famous is the Qianhu Miao Ling Dragon House Group in Xijiang. There are 108 walled dragon houses distributed on the mountainside, forming a spectacular picture. We visited the layout and decoration inside the walled dragon houses and learned about the Hakka people’s customs and historical stories.
Hunting is an exciting and fun outdoor activity, but it is not something that can be done casually. Before enjoying the fun of hunting, we need to understand some precautions for hunting to ensure our own and others’ safety, comply with laws and regulations, respect prey and the natural environment, and choose suitable equipment and locations.
First of all, safety is the top priority of hunting. When hunting, we should carry essential items such as first aid kits, mobile phones, and compasses to prevent accidents. In the wild, we should pay attention to observing the surrounding environment and avoid touching poisonous or dangerous plants and animals. When using firearms or archery weapons, we should be extra careful and not point them at people or non-target objects, not shoot or release arrows in uncertain situations, and not hunt under the influence of alcohol or drugs. When going out hunting, we should first load the bullets, and then control the firearm in a safe manner. After hunting, we should unload the bullets and clean the firearm in a timely manner. If encountering dangerous situations, such as encountering wild animals or criminals, we should remain calm and seek help.
Secondly, the law is the bottom line of hunting. Before hunting, we should understand the local laws and regulations, know when, where, and what animals can be hunted, and when, where, and what animals are prohibited from hunting. We should apply for relevant licenses before hunting, such as hunting licenses, fishing and hunting licenses, and specific animal hunting permits, and carry and display them as required. When hunting, we should comply with local regulations, such as wearing bright-colored clothes to distinguish ourselves, not entering private property or prohibited areas, not killing innocent or stealing others’ prey. After hunting, we should handle and transport the prey according to regulations and report to relevant departments.
Thirdly, morality is the criterion for hunting. Hunting is not slaughter, but a way of harmonious coexistence with nature. When hunting, we should respect prey and the natural environment and avoid causing unnecessary harm or pollution. We should know how to choose, kill the big ones and leave the small ones, kill males and leave females, and avoid over-killing or over-fishing, to protect ecological balance and species diversity. After hunting, we should cherish and use the prey well, and not waste or abandon it. We should also respect the rights and feelings of others and not interfere or threaten their safety and interests.
After this hunting trip to Meizhou, Guangdong, China, we not only experienced the fun of hunting but also learned knowledge and skills of hunting. We enjoyed the scenery and cuisine of Meizhou and felt the culture and tradition of the Hakka people. We understood the precautions for hunting and complied with the norms of safety, law, and morality, and chose suitable equipment and locations. We respected prey and the natural environment and cherished and used the prey well. We felt that hunting is a way of harmonious coexistence with nature and a way of physical and mental exercise. We hope to have more opportunities to go hunting and also hope that more people can understand and support hunting. Finally, thank you for reading my article, and I hope you can also enjoy hunting.
