Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/28/17

For the last regular hunt day of the 2016/17 season, the per person waterfowl average take for Saturday at San Jacinto Wildlife Area dropped about a ¼ bird compared to Wednesday’s average numbers under clear skies with off and on light winds.  Shovelers remained in the first position for number of birds taken with Gadwall showing up the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/28/17 were as follows:

111 adult and 12 junior hunters bagged 76 Northern Shovelers, 15 Cinnamon Teal, 21 Mallards, 36 Gadwall, 13 Widgeon, 12 Pintail, 10 Green Wing Teal, 4 Redhead, 6 Ring Necks, 1 Scaup, 18 Bufflehead, 2 Goldeneye and 17 Ruddy Ducks. There were no Geese checked in at San Jacinto on Saturday.  16 Coots were bagged at San Jacinto on Saturday.  This figured out to a per hunter average take of 1.88 ducks per hunter or, with the Coots figured in, 2.01 waterfowl per gun. Out of 52 reservation cards issued 17 hunters arrived on time for their spot.

Once again we come to the end of another waterfowl season.  The 2016 / 2017 regular waterfowl season is in the books. If you are a junior hunter, or you have a junior hunter in the family, there’s one more chance for them to waterfowl hunt this season at San Jacinto’s Annual Junior Waterfowl hunt, next Saturday, 2/4/17.
