2nd Volunteer Work Day Set for San Jacinto Wildlife Area- Saturday, August 26, 2017

Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, advised that the next volunteer work day for San Jacinto Wildlife Area would be Saturday, August 26th.  This work day will be primarily to start brushing up the area’s blinds for the coming season.  Tom advised that volunteers should meet at the check station at 6:30 am and anyone coming out to volunteer should bring gloves, shovels and/or hoes, wire pliers and lots of water since it’s expected to be hot. Also, if anyone has access to palm fronds they are way low on their supply of these.  More are needed and we can’t have too many so if you can bring some along, please do.  After the work is done we will get together at a local restaurant for a well-deserved lunch (each person responsible for their own bill).

Again, I know this is short notice so Tom wanted to apologize again as some equipment problems got them behind and they’re still catching up.

Hopefully, we’ll have at least as good a turnout as we had on the August 5th work day so we can get the blinds brushed up for another waterfowl season.  As I always say, the more the merrier (and the less work for each person).

Tom also told me that they will have one more date in September for a final volunteer blind brush-up day at San Jacinto (exact date still to be determined).

Also, if you do come out to help there a potential bonus as this is 6 days before the opening of dove season.  The waterfowl side of the wildlife area will be opened for dove hunting the entire first weekend of dove season (Sept. 1 – 3).  If you want to hunt SJ this would also be a good time to get a little scouting in for the dove opener while you lend a hand.  Just remember, if you do come out to hunt dove at San Jacinto it’s unleaded this year, NON-TOXIC SHOT ONLY!

Hopefully, we’ll have a good crew of volunteers for this one to get the blinds looking good for the upcoming season and another great year of duck hunting.
