Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/23/21

The waterfowl average take at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area ticked up just slightly as compared to Wednesday’s average under rainy skies and temperatures that started in the low 40s and never even got into the 50s. Green Wing Teal jumped into first place for most birds bagged swapping spots with Shovelers which slid back into the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/23/21 were as follows:

174 adult and 11 junior hunters harvested 92 Northern Shovelers, 5 Mallards, 36 Gadwall, 17 Pintail, 114 Green Wing Teal, 42 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 1 Canvasback, 4 Bufflehead, and 14 Ruddy Ducks. 2 Canada Geese were checked in at San Jacinto on Saturday.  72 Coots were also bagged at San Jacinto on Saturday.  This came out to an average bag of 1.76 ducks per hunter or, with the Geese and Coots worked in to the total, 2.16 waterfowl per person. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation cards issued 21 hunters showed on time to get 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.
