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

(Sorry for the delay on this report.  Apparently some type of computer snafu prevented getting it in a timely manner.  I guess we all know how that goes sometimes.)

The per gun average take of waterfowl at San Jacinto Wildlife Area for Wednesday 1/1/14 went up just a hair over the previous Saturday’s average.  Shovelers remained in the number two spot for number of birds taken with Green Wing Teal staying in first position on Wednesday.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/1/14 were as follows:

137 adult and 11 junior hunters bagged 206 Northern Shovelers, 10 Mallards, 34 Gadwall, 4 Widgeon, 2 Pintail, 223 Green Wing Teal, 7 Cinnamon Teal, 8 Redheads, 2 Canvasbacks, 13 Ring Necks, 2 Scaup, 5 Bufflehead, and 16 Ruddy Ducks.  There was also 1 duck taken whose species was listed as “other”.  There were no geese taken at San Jacinto on Wednesday.   11 coots were also included in the count on Wednesday.   This came out to a 3.68 waterfowl average per hunter.   Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards 30 showed up on time.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only.  As of the writing of this report 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. For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.
