Hunt Results for San Jacinto 12/22/10

Duck Hunting at San Jacinto Wildlife area dropped off a bit from Saturday’s results with hunters bagging less ducks in muddy and rainy conditions on the refuge. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto, reported the following results for Wednesday, 12/22/10:

110 adult and 10 junior hunters bagged 28 widgeon, 1 buffelhead, 1 cinnamon teal, 25 gadwall, 20 green-wing teal, 5 mallards, 109 northern shovelers, 13 pintail, 5 red-head, 12 ring necks, 4 ruddy ducks, and 3 scaup. There were also 2 Ross’s geese taken. The average number of birds was 1.95 per hunter.

Tom reported that 17 out of the 50 reservation cardholders showed up on time.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. You can put in for reservations through the state reservation system (your card has to be to Fish and Game in Sacramento 17 days in advance to get in on the drawing – buy one day and five day reservation cards at your local license agent AKA: sporting goods store) or you can get in on the daily “sweatline” drawing for the remaining blinds after the reservations are taken care of. Reservation spots are given out starting at 3 AM and the “sweatline” drawing is done after that. You can also show up for an afternoon refill hunt but the last refill is at 1 PM. For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.

Remember, tomorrow, Saturday 12/25/10, the refuge will be closed to hunting for Christmas day.
