Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/14/12

Waterfowl numbers dropped again Saturday at San Jacinto Wildlife Area after going up slightly on Wednesday, resulting in a new season low average per hunter. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl count for Saturday, 1/14/12, was as follows:

148 adult and 14 junior hunters checked in with 27 Northern Shovelers, 1 Bufflehead, 10 Cinnamon Teal, 17 Gadwall, 60 Green Wing Teal, 3 Mallards, 1 Merganser, 35 Pintail, and 8 Ruddy Ducks. There was a lone White-front goose checked in at San Jacinto on Saturday. 16 coot also were included in the bag on Saturday. This worked out to the season’s lowest average so far of 1.10 waterfowl per hunter. No stats on the on time reservation holders were included in the report for Saturday.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. At this point in the season it is now too late to put in for reservations on-line through the DFG Automated License Data System (ALDS). You can still 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.

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 may not get your pass in time to use it as they have to mail it to you which can take up to 15 days. At this point you need to purchase your license and passes in person at a DFG office or license agent so you will 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.
