Hunt Results for the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area Junior Hunt Weekend, Saturday – 2/2/19, Sunday – 2/3/19

This year’s Junior Waterfowl Hunt at the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area resulted in great averages for the Junior Hunters on Saturday. Pintail and Green Wing Teal were tied for the most numerous birds taken with Gadwall showing up in the second spot. The Wister Staff reported that the waterfowl take for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/2/19, was as follows:

46 Junior Hunters checked in with 22 Shovelers, 9 Mallards, 31 Gadwall, 10 Widgeon, 38 Pintail, 38 Green Wing Teal, 10 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 1 Ring Neck, 1 Bufflehead, and 4 Ruddy Ducks. There were also 2 Snow Geese checked in by the Junior Hunters on Saturday. The Juniors didn’t bag any Coots on Saturday. This figured out to an average of 3.59 ducks per Junior Hunter or, with the Geese included, 3.63 waterfowl per Junior Hunter. Out of 100 reservations issued only 18 showed up in time to claim their hunting spot.

The average take of waterfowl for Sunday, the second day of the Junior Hunt weekend, at the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area, surprisingly, continued with a great average bag just slightly lower than Saturday’s great averages.  Pintail held on to the first spot for number of birds taken with Green Wing Teal sliding back into the second position tied with Mallards. The Wister Staff reported the waterfowl take for the Junior Hunt on Sunday, 2/3/19 were as follows:

9 Junior Hunters checked in with 5 Mallards, 4 Gadwall, 10 Pintail, 5 Green Wing Teal, and 4 Cinnamon Teal. 2 Snow Geese were also included in the bag at the Junior Hunt on Sunday. Again, no Coots were brought into the check station by the Juniors on Sunday. This worked out to an average of 3.11 ducks per Junior Hunter or, with the Geese included, 3.33 waterfowl per Junior Hunter. Out of 100 reservations issued only 4 arrived on time for their spot.

With that, the 2018/2019 Waterfowl Season at the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area is in the books. Watch for SoCalHunt’s Season-Long Stats report for Wister coming here soon.  It’s been another great season with preparations soon to be underway for next season. Hope to see you out there.
