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

The average bag of waterfowl at San Jacinto Wildlife Area shot upward substantially as compared to Saturday’s average with weather conditions that started off with below freezing temperatures in the morning topping out with temperatures just short of 70 under sunny skies.  Green Wing Teal took over first placefor number of birds checked in with Cinnamon Teal remaining in the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 11/11/20 were as follows:

177 adult and 12 junior hunters checked in with 71 Northern Shovelers, 44 Mallards, 71 Gadwall, 20 Widgeon, 36 Pintail, 224 Green Wing Teal, 131 Cinnamon Teal, 13 Redheads, 32 Ring Necks, 7 Scaup, 18 Bufflehead, 2 Wood Ducks, and 15 Ruddy Ducks.  There were 2 Snow Geese bagged at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  In addition, 13 Coots were checked in on Wednesday.  This figured out to a harvest average of 3.62 ducks per gun or, with the Geese and Coots included, 3.70 waterfowl per person. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation cards issued 32 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.
