Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt, Saturday – 2/5/11

Waterfowl counts for the Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt on Saturday, 2/5/11, at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area were a little slow, however, the junior hunters had a great time shooting at the refuge. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto, supplied the following results for Saturday, 2/5/11:

75 junior hunters bagged 5 Northern Shovelers, 7 Bufflehead, 13 Cinnamon Teal, 5 Gadwall, 18 Green Wing Teal, 4 Pintail, 2 Ring Necks and 5 Ruddy Ducks. The juniors also shot 9 coots. This gave an average of 0.9 waterfowl per junior hunter.

So, that brings an end to a great 2010/2011 season at San Jacinto Wildlife Area.

Tom wanted me to thank all who donated time, effort, prizes and money to help pull off a successful junior hunt. Every penny, dime, nickel, quarter and dollar that hunters put into the Junior Hunt “water bottle” at the check station desk was put to good use. Each junior hunter left the check station in the morning with a gift bag containing a hat, shirt, calendar and gift card. That’s not to mention all of the nice prizes that were donated which were given out at the raffle at lunch.

Planning ahead for next season, unless there are some changes between now and then, San Jacinto will be 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.
