Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/11/14

The average per person bag of waterfowl at San Jacinto Wildlife Area for this Saturday dropped markedly from Wednesday’s average take.  Green Wing Teal took first place once again for number of birds bagged with Shovelers coming in a distant second. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/11/14 were as follows:

146 adult and 21 junior hunters bagged 88 Northern Shovelers, 8 Mallards, 18 Gadwall, 8 Widgeon, 3 Pintail, 167 Green Wing Teal,  6 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 3 Ring Necks, and 10 Ruddy Ducks.  No geese were downed at San Jacinto on Saturday.  6 coots were included in for the take on Saturday. This resulted in a per hunter waterfowl average of 1.90 birds. Out of 52 reservation holders 28 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 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. For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.
