San Jacinto’s Wildlife Area’s Annual Hunter’s Education Class Well Attended

Saturday, June 3rd San Jacinto Wildlife Area held their Annual Hunter’s Education Class.  Tom Trakes, of San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that there were 64 new hunters in attendance and they all passed their Hunter’s Education test.  With their Hunter’s Education Certificate in hand, the students are now eligible to be fully licensed hunters in the State of California.  The students in this class were mostly youth with a few adults and even a few people from out of state.  They will all be joining the rest of us as part of the hunting community.

Donuts in the morning and a great lunch were provided by Quail Forever and Valley Wide provided the tables and chairs for the event.  Quail Forever also provided a swamp cooler to keep the students cooler. A big thanks to both Quail Forever and Valley Wide!

Tom also wanted to extend a big thanks to Scott Sewell, Leo Zamboni of West Coast Guns, Game Wardens Dustin Holyoak, Brandy Hill, and Ryan of Quail Forever for their assistance with the class.

Also, in preparation for the next season, the San Jacinto Staff is starting to collect palm fronds to use for the blind brush-up days.  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.  Please remember, if you are going to donate palm fronds, to avoid bringing the type with the thorns on them.  They can’t be used as they are detrimental to waders and skin.  You can get ahold of Tom at (951)-236-3040.

Students hard at work.

Lunch Break!

Back at it.
