San Jacinto’s Annual Hunter’s Education Class a Great Success

Saturday, May 2nd was San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s Annual Hunter’s Education Class. Tom Trakes, of San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that 40 new hunters were in attendance and they all passed their Hunter’s Education test. The new hunters are now eligible to be fully licensed to hunt in the State of California. The students ranged in age from about 9 years old to their late 50’s and they will now be joining the ranks of the hunting community.

The hunter’s education students enjoyed a hearty lunch at the San Jacinto Headquarters at midday consisting of giant sub sandwiches, potato salad, chips and soft drinks.

The next event for hunters at San Jacinto Wildlife Area will be a workday / blind brush-up day, probably around the first Saturday in August. This will be a general workday to clean out water control structures and build or replace and brush-up some blinds in the waterfowl area. There will then be at least one additional workday, some time in September, to finish up what work is needed and finish brushing the blinds. Keep your eye on SoCalHunt for announcements of the exact dates when these are set.

Tom also wanted me to mention that they have started to collect palm fronds to use for the blind brush-up day. If you have palm trees to trim and want to get rid of the palm fronds just give Tom a call and he’ll make arrangements for someone to be at SJ to meet you so you can drop off the palm fronds. You can get ahold of Tom at (951)-236-3040.

Here are some pictures of the Hunter’s Education class in progress.
