Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 1/23/13

The pre hunter average take of waterfowl at San Jacinto Wildlife Area this Wednesday dropped a full bird from Saturday’s average under cloudy skys. Shovelers remained in first place for number of birds taken and Green Wing Teal took second place on Wednesday. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/23/13 were as follows:

142 adult and 4 junior hunters bagged 175 Northern Shovelers, 4 Bufflehead, 7 Cinnamon Teal, 50 Gadwall, 86 Green Wing Teal, 1 Mallard, 14 Pintail, 1 Redhead, 1 Goldeneye and 11 Ruddy Ducks. Again no geese were taken at San Jacinto on Wednesday. 7 coots were included in the count on Wednesday. This worked out to a per gun average of 2.45 waterfowl. Out of 50 reservations exactly half, 25, 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.
