Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 1/8/14

The per hunter take of waterfowl at San Jacinto Wildlife Area for this Wednesday jumped upward significantly from Saturday’s average. Green Wing Teal regained the most numerous bird taken spot with Shovelers taking second place on Wednesday. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/8/14 were as follows:

152 adult and 8 junior hunters bagged 126 Northern Shovelers, 10 Mallards, 24 Gadwall, 12 Widgeon, 3 Pintail, 315 Green Wing Teal, 2 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 1 Canvasback, 2 Ring Necks, 2 Scaup, 3 Bufflehead, and 7 Ruddy Ducks.  There was a lone Aleutian Goose taken at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  9 coots were also checked in for the count on Wednesday.  This worked out to a 3.24 waterfowl average per hunter.  Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards 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 DFW 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 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 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 DFW 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.
