San Jacinto Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt Event – 2/5/11

I just returned from attending the annual San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s Junior Waterfowl Hunt Event. A great time was had by all who attended. There were about 65 junior hunters in attendance (exact numbers and the bird count will be in a later report) and there were a number of nice raffle prizes given out.

The attendees were treated to a wonderful pancake breakfast and a nice lunch of giant submarine sandwiches, chips, and many homemade desserts.

After lunch the raffle was conducted and many nice prizes were given out. These ranged from gun cases, knifes, decoys, calls and other various hunting equipment. The big prizes today were a Remington 870 Junior Shotgun, won by Taylor Reed who was hunting in Marsh Z, and a fully guided turkey hunting trip on private property in the Julian area, won by Carlos Barrios who was hunting in blind B-3. There were several former junior hunters in attendance that Tom had conduct the raffle this year. Tom and the rest of the San Jacinto Staff, as always, did a great job running the show.

Once the lunch and raffle were over many of the junior hunters headed back out to their blinds to finish their day of duck hunting (which many are still doing as I write this, I’m sure). I should have the final bird count for the junior hunt by Wednesday and will post it as soon as Tom gets the numbers to me.
