Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/26/19

The average waterfowl take at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area slipped back a little as compared to Wednesday’s averages under partly cloudy skies with temperatures that climbed into the mid-70’s.  Shovelers held on to the number one spot for number of birds taken with Gadwall taking over the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/26/19 were as follows:

136 adult and 17 junior hunters bagged 77 Shovelers, 10 Mallards, 39 Gadwall, 7 Widgeon, 5 Pintail, 35 Green Wing Teal, 24 Cinnamon Teal, 5 Bufflehead, and 15 Ruddy Ducks. Again, no Geese were bagged at San Jacinto on Saturday.  23 Coots were checked in at San Jacinto on Saturday.  This worked out to an average harvest of 1.42 ducks per gun or, with the Coots included, 1.57 waterfowl for each person. Out of 52 reservation cards issued 28 arrived on time to claim their spot.

Well, that’s it for the 2018/2019 regular waterfowl season. Junior hunters have one more chance at those elusive waterfowl, next Saturday, February 2nd.  If you’re a junior hunter or you have a junior hunter in the family, here’s hoping you’ll take advantage of San Jacinto’s Annual Junior Waterfowl hunt, next Saturday, 2/2/19. Here’s hoping the Juniors have a great hunt!  If your junior hunter doesn’t have a reservation for the Junior Hunt he or she can still get in on the sweatline drawing, just like any regular hunt day, by showing up at SJ at 3 AM to get their name in on the sweatline drawing.  For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.
