Hunt Results for San Jacinto 12/29/10

Despite the rainy weather, or maybe because of it, hunting at San Jacinto Wildlife area slowed for the second week in a row. The weather, and the fact that hunters were required to walk in to their assigned blinds, didn’t keep hunters at home however. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto, reported that the results for Saturday, 12/29/10 were as follows:

138 adult and 10 junior hunters checked in 116 Northern Shovelers, 12 Widgeon, 9 Buffelheads, 2 Cinnamon Teal, 13 Gadwall, 17 Green Wing Teal, 10 Mallards, 2 Pintail, 4 Red Heads, 24 Ring Necks, 9 Ruddys and 1 blue-wing teal for an average of 1.48 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation cards 26 showed up on time.

There is a lot of open water in the area of the refuge now, including Mystic Lake, and this may have dispersed the waterfowl throughout the area resulting in less birds on the refuge.

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.
