Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 12/10/11

Saturday’s waterfowl average dropped quite a bit at San Jacinto Wildlife Area compared to this past Wednesday’s per hunter average. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl count for Saturday, 12/10/11, was as follows:

153 adult and 11 junior hunters checked in with 147 Northern Shovelers, 21 Wigeon, 10 Bufflehead, 11 Cinnamon Teal, 34 Gadwall, 69 Green Wing Teal, 24 Mallards, 1 Merganser, 20 Pintail, 3 Redheads, 2 Ring Necks, 1 Scaup and 11 Ruddy Ducks. A Ross’ Goose and a Snow Goose were also included in the take for Saturday. 5 coot were also taken on Saturday. This resulted in an average per hunter of 2.20 waterfowl. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation holders 27 arrived 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. Check SoCalHunt’s post regarding the toy drive for information at:
