Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/21/12

Saturday’s per-gun average take of waterfowl went up marginally over Wednesday’s take under rainy conditions. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl count for Saturday, 1/21/12, was as follows:

153 adult and 11 junior hunters checked in with 48 Northern Shovelers, 2 Wigeon, 22 Bufflehead, 1 Canvasback, 13 Cinnamon Teal, 50 Gadwall, 101 Green Wing Teal, 10 Mallards, 1 Merganser, 40 Pintail, 1 Redhead, 1 Ring Neck, and 14 Ruddy Ducks. There were 2 White-front geese taken on the refuge on Saturday. 5 coot were also bagged on Saturday. This figured out to an average of 1.90 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that 22 of the 50 reservation holders arrived on time to claim their spots.

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.
