San Jacinto Wildlife Area Announces the 23rd Annual Junior Hunt Event

Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area advised that their 23rd Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt has been set for the Wildlife Area. The date for the hunt is Saturday, February 4th, 2017. This is a great event and provides our junior hunters an opportunity for some great waterfowl hunting after the regular season closes. This year’s hunt will honor our Military Men and Women. There is a wonderful pancake breakfast provided by the San Jacinto Staff and volunteers prior to the hunt and a nice lunch after the hunt with a bunch of raffle prizes for the Junior Hunters.  Juniors can apply for the hunt by going to the DFW reservation system at:

…to apply for a reservation for the Junior hunt on the regular waterfowl reservation system for a reservation for the Feb. 4th Junior hunt.  If the applicant’s DOB shows that they’re a Junior hunter then the system will give them the option to apply for a reservation for Feb 4th.

Last year there were new DFW regulations put in place regarding donations for the Junior Hunt (details here: ). These rules are still in effect for this year.  Anyone who would like to donate prizes for the raffle or money towards prizes / food needs to have their donation(s) “on the books”, so to speak, by January 15th by following the procedure laid out in the above link.  This is a great cause so don’t let a little paperwork dissuade you from donating, it really isn’t all that hard.

Bass Pro Shop in Rancho Cucamonga is assisting again this year by giving hunters a chance to win one of five exclusive wildlife canvas prints by BBC nominated photographer David Salem.

You can go to or contact Bass Pro Shops in Rancho Cucamonga for details on the print raffle.

If you’d like to volunteer to assist at the breakfast and/or lunch, or need any further info on the DFW approved method to donate this year, you should contact Tom Trakes at (951)-236-3020.
