Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 1/20/21

The average waterfowl bag at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area jumped up a bit as compared to Saturday’s average under mostly clear skies with temperatures that started out in the mid 50s and only got up to the mid 60s. Shovelers took over first place for most numerous bird taken with Green Wing Teal falling back to the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/20/21 were as follows:

151 adult and 5 junior hunters checked in with 67 Northern Shovelers, 9 Mallard, 49 Gadwall, 27 Pintail, 61 Green Wing Teal, 31 Cinnamon Teal, 3 Canvasback, 1 Scaup, 3 Bufflehead, and 8 Ruddy Ducks.  No Geese were bagged at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  5 Coots were also downed at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  This figured out to an average take of 1.66 ducks per gun or, with the Coots included, 1.69 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation cards issued 21 hunters arrived 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.
