Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 12/28/13

The average per hunter waterfowl take at San Jacinto Wildlife Area for this Saturday jumped significantly over last Saturday’s average after the Christmas break Wednesday.  For the first time this year Shovelers were not the most numerous bird taken, that spot being taken over by Green Wing Teal, relegating Shovelers to the second spot. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 12/28/13 were as follows:

139 adult and 17 junior hunters bagged 204 Northern Shovelers, 9 Mallards, 35 Gadwall, 8 Widgeon, 2 Pintail, 231 Green Wing Teal, 10 Cinnamon Teal, 11 Redheads, 3 Canvasbacks, 1 Ring Neck, 4 Scaup, 16 Bufflehead and 11 Ruddy Ducks.  Again no geese were taken at San Jacinto on Saturday.  16 coots were also counted in the take on Saturday. This resulted in a per hunter waterfowl average of 3.60 birds. Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards 32 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 DFG 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 DFG 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 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 will have to wait for the DFG 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 DFG 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.
