Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/18/14

The per hunter average take of waterfowl at San Jacinto Wildlife Area for this Saturday dropped way down from last Wednesday’s average take. Green Wing Teal regained first place for number of birds bagged with Shovelers coming in at second place. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/18/14 were as follows:

150 adult and 6 junior hunters bagged 59 Northern Shovelers, 3 Mallards, 42 Gadwall, 5 Widgeon, 9 Pintail, 64 Green Wing Teal, 3 Redheads, 1 Canvasback, 2 Ring Necks, 1 Scaup, 5 Bufflehead and 15 Ruddy Ducks.  No geese were harvested at San Jacinto on Saturday.  3 coots were also checked in on Saturday. This resulted in a per hunter waterfowl average of 1.36 birds. Out of 52 reservation holders 36 showed up on time for their spots.

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.
