Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 12/21/11

This Wednesday’s average waterfowl take took a nose-dive from Saturday’s average at San Jacinto Wildlife Area. Hunting under blue-bird skies resulted in the lowest average of the season so far. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl count for Wednesday, 12/21/11, was as follows:

153 adult and 10 junior hunters checked in with 92 Northern Shovelers, 1 Wigeon, 3 Bufflehead, 1 Canvasback, 7 Cinnamon Teal, 35 Gadwall, 40 Green Wing Teal, 5 Mallards, 27 Pintail and 15 Ruddy Ducks. There was a single snow goose taken on the refuge on Wednesday. No coot were reported in the count on Wednesday. This figured out to a per gun average of 1.39 waterfowl. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation holders 22 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.
