Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 11/7/20

The waterfowl average take at San Jacinto Wildlife Area remained almost exactly the same as Wednesday’s average under rainy skies that even brought a little hail, and temperatures just barely getting into the 50s.  Gadwall climbed into first place for most numerous bird bagged with Cinnamon Teal being found in the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 11/7/20 were as follows:

172 adult and 15 junior hunters checked in with 24 Northern Shovelers, 29 Mallards, 59 Gadwall, 18 Widgeon, 19 Pintail, 22 Green Wing Teal, 32 Cinnamon Teal, 17 Redheads, 23 Ring Necks, 7 Scaup, 26 Bufflehead, and 23 Ruddy Ducks.  There were no Geese taken at San Jacinto on Saturday.  Also, 28 Coots were bagged on Saturday.  This came out to an average harvest of 1.60 ducks per hunter or, with the Coots included, 1.75 waterfowl per gun. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation cards issued 24 showed up on time to claim their spot.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. You can put in for reservations on-line through the DFW Automated License Data System (ALDS).  Your reservation request has to be to the ALDS system 17 days in advance to get in on the drawing or you can get in on the daily “sweatline” drawing for the remaining blinds after the reservations are taken care of. Reservation spots are given out starting at 3 AM and the “sweatline” drawing is done after that. The ALDS can be accessed through the DFW web site at the below link –

Don’t forget that all licenses and 1 day, 2 day or season passes must be purchased at a DFW Office or a license agent before your arrival at the refuge.  These can be purchased online via the ALDS system also, however, you will have to wait for the DFG to mail you the actual licenses and passes which can take up to 15 days.  If you purchase your license and passes in person at a DFW office or license agent, you immediately get them without the wait for the mail.  As in past seasons, no licenses or passes will be sold at the check stations this season.  You can also show up for an afternoon refill hunt, but the last refill is at 2 PM. For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.
