Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 11/5/11

The Waterfowl count improved at San Jacinto Wildlife Area on Saturday, 11/5/11, as hunters came in with the best average per gun of the season so far. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 11/5/11 were as follows:

118 adult and 11 junior hunters harvested 94 Northern Shovelers, 30 Wigeon, 4 Blue Wing Teal, 25 Bufflehead, 102 Cinnamon Teal, 10 Gadwall, 2 Green Wing Teal, 30 Mallards, 9 Pintail, 2 Redhead, 30 Ring Necks, 6 Scaup and 19 Ruddy Ducks. A lone Snow Goose was downed on the refuge Saturday. 52 coot were also bagged on Saturday. This averaged out to 3.22 waterfowl per gun. Tom stated that out of 50 reservation cards 24 checked in for their spots on time.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. You can put in for reservations on-line through the DFG Automated License Data System (ALDS). Your reservation request has to be to the ALDS system 17 days in advance to get in on the drawing 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. The ALDS can be accessed through the DFG web site at the below link –

Don’t forget that all licenses and 1 day, 2 day or season passes must be purchased at a DFG Office or a license agent before your arrive at the refuge. These can be purchased on-line via the ALDS system also, however, you will have to wait for the DFG to mail you’re the actual licenses and passes which can take up to 15 days. If you purchase your license and passes in person at a DFG office or license agent you immediately get them without the wait for the mail. No licenses or passes will be sold at the check stations this year. You can also show up for an afternoon refill hunt but the last refill is at 2 PM. For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.

Don’t forget to donate towards San Jacinto’s Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt by dropping a buck or two, or even some change, in the bottle on the check station counter. In the past this bottle has been filled by hunters putting their change from daily permit purchases in the bottle. Since the check station is no longer selling permits the source of that change has dried up. This is important for promoting the future of our sport by getting young people interested in waterfowl hunting.

Also, San Jacinto’s Annual Christmas Toy Drive has started. Bring a toy to donate to the barrel in the check station. Look for a post in the near future on SoCalHunt’s blog for details
