The bird per hunter average for San Jacinto Wildlife Area for this Saturday improved markedly over Wednesday’s average, recovering to near 2 ½ birds per hunter.  As has been since the beginning of the season Shovelers were the most numerous bird taken with Green Wing Teal taking over the number two spot on Saturday.

153 adult and 6 junior hunters bagged 123 Northern Shovelers, 16 Mallards, 42 Gadwall, 49 Widgeon, 6 Pintail, 84 Green Wing Teal, 26 Cinnamon Teal, 7 Redheads, 2 Ring Necks, 3 Scaup, 10 Bufflehead and 20 Ruddy Ducks.  There were also 3 ducks listed as “other” on the take sheet.  Again no geese were bagged at San Jacinto on Saturday.  2 coot was also included in the take on Saturday.  This resulted in a per hunter waterfowl average of 2.47 birds. Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards 34 showed up on time.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. You can put in for reservations on-line through the DFW 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 DFW 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 DFW 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 DFW 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 DFW 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.  You can also show up for an afternoon refill hunt but the last refill is at 2 PM.
