Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 1/20/15

The per hunter average harvest of ducks at San Jacinto Wildlife Area stayed almost the same on this Wednesday as compared to Saturday’s totals on a day that started out with foggy conditions with limited visibility for a while in the morning. Green Wing Teal stayed in first place for number of birds taken and Gadwall slipped into the second spot today. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/20/15 were as follows:

115 adult and 6 junior hunters bagged 27 Northern Shovelers, 56 Gadwall, 4 Widgeon, 93 Green Wing Teal, 7 Mallards, 2 Pintail, 4 Bufflehead, 6 Cinnamon Teal, 5 Redheads, 2 Ring Necks and 12 Ruddy Ducks. No geese were harvested at San Jacinto on Wednesday. In addition 5 coots were also brought in on Wednesday at San Jacinto. This figured out to an average bag per hunter of 1.80 ducks, or, with the coots included, 1.84 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that out of 52 reservations 21 showed up on time.

Don’t forget to bring a buck or two or ten, whatever you can spare if you’re able, and put some in the box in the check station for the Junior Waterfowl Hunt. These donations go towards running the event, the food and some of the prizes for the junior hunters. The juniors are the future of our sport and the junior hunt is a great way to get them enthused about the sport.

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 “sweat line” drawing for the remaining blinds after the reservations are taken care of. Reservation spots are given out starting at 3 AM and the “sweat line” 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 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 DFW 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 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.
