Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 11/9/16

San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s duck count slid back slightly over Saturday’s bag under continuing warm, nearly cloudless skies. Green Wing Teal stayed in first place for the number of ducks taken with Shovelers retaining the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 11/9/16 were as follows:

112 adult and 3 junior hunters bagged 18 Northern Shovelers, 10 Cinnamon Teal, 3 Mallards, 12 Gadwall, 8 Widgeon, 1 Pintail, 44 Green Wing Teal, 6 Redheads, 1 Canvasback, 17 Ring Necks, 9 Bufflehead, 1 Blue Wing Teal, 2 Mergansers and 8 Ruddy Ducks. There were also 6 Aleutian Geese taken at San Jacinto on Wednesday. In addition 5 coots were checked in on Wednesday.  This worked out to an average bag of 1.22 ducks per person or, with the Geese and Coots figured in, 1.31 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards 27 arrived on time for their spot.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. You can put in for reservations on-line through the DFW Automated License Data System (ALDS).  Your reservation request has to be to the ALDS system 17 days in advance to get in on the drawing or you can 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. The ALDS can be accessed through the DFW web site at the below link –

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 arrival 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 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.  As in past seasons no licenses or passes will be sold at the check stations this season.  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.
