Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/19/13

The per hunter average take of waterfowl at San Jacinto Wildlife Area for this Saturday went up again from Wednesday’s average take. Shovelers, again, were in first place for number of birds bagged with Green Wing Teal coming in at second place. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/19/13 were as follows:

140 adult and 10 junior hunters bagged 283 Northern Shovelers, 3 Wigeon, 8 Bufflehead, 4 Cinnamon Teal, 40 Gadwall, 133 Green Wing Teal, 4 Mallards, 21 Pintail, 4 Redheads, and 14 Ruddy Ducks. No geese were harvested at San Jacinto on Saturday. 3 coots were checked in on Saturday. This resulted in a per hunter waterfowl average of 3.45 birds. There was no information provided about how many reservation holders showed up on time.

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. For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.
