Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 24th Annual Junior Hunt, Saturday – 2/3/18

San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 24th Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt on Saturday, February 3rd, resulted in a good average bag for each of the Junior Hunters in attendance. The Juniors managed to beat the per gun average for most of the regular hunt days during the season.  Green Wing Teal were the number one bird checked in by the Junior Hunters with Cinnamon Teal coming in the second. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl harvest for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/3/18, was as follows:

79 junior hunters checked in with 21 Northern Shovelers, 9 Mallards, 13 Gadwall, 2 Widgeon, 58 Green Wing Teal, 41 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 1 Scaup, 5 Bufflehead, and 3 Ruddy Ducks. The Juniors also managed to harvest 2 Canada Geese at the Junior Hunt on Saturday. There were no Coots brought in to the check station on Saturday. This worked out to an average of 1.95 ducks per Junior Hunter or, with the Geese added in, 1.97 waterfowl per Junior Hunter. Tom advised that out of 52 reservations issued 20 showed up on time for their spot.

Since SoCalHunt couldn’t attend the Junior Hunt this year I’ll be posting a report on the breakfast, lunch and raffle as soon as Tom gets me the info on that.  As always, I’m sure it was a great event with lots of prizes and food for all that attended.  As soon as I have the info I’ll post it here.
