Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 11/26/16

The waterfowl average take for San Jacinto Wildlife Area ticked back up a little as compared to Wednesday’s averages under cold temperatures and a building rainstorm. Green Wing Teal held on to the first position for number of ducks taken with Widgeon holding on to second place.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 11/26/16 were as follows:

101 adult and 11 junior hunters bagged 19 Northern Shovelers, 11 Cinnamon Teal, 22 Mallards, 17 Gadwall, 37 Widgeon, 57 Green Wing Teal, 10 Redheads, 2 Canvasbacks, 2 Scaup, 11 Bufflehead and 16 Ruddy Ducks. There were no Geese checked in at San Jacinto on Saturday.  In addition 9 Coots were bagged at San Jacinto on Saturday.  This worked out to an average take of 1.82 ducks per hunter or, with the Coots added in, 1.90 waterfowl per person. Out of 52 reservation cards issued 33 showed up 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 –

San Jacinto Wildlife Area has begun its annual Toy Drive for the Bryant Park Head Start Preschool.  If you’re able, please bring a new, unwrapped toy for the kids.  This is a great program and a chance to show that hunters have a heart.  Details of this year’s toy drive can be seen here:

Also, San Jacinto’s 23rd Annual Junior Hunt is coming up on February 4th, 2017.  New state regulations, which went into effect last year, regarding donations for this great event are in effect again this year.  It’s a great cause to donate to as the Junior Hunters are the future of our sport so don’t let a little paperwork keep you from donating. Details on the procedures for donating can be found 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.
