Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 1/27/21

The average waterfowl harvest at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area dropped quite a bit compared to Saturday’s average under partly cloudy skies with temperatures that started in the mid 30s and got into the mid 50s. Cinnamon Teal took over first place for most birds checked in with Shovelers holding on to the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/27/21 were as follows:

166 adult and 12 junior hunters harvested 31 Northern Shovelers, 5 Mallards, 20 Gadwall, 1 Widgeon, 14 Pintail, 19 Green Wing Teal, 37 Cinnamon Teal, 2 Redhead, 2 Scaup, 17 Bufflehead, and 17 Ruddy Ducks. No Geese were bagged at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  9 Coots were also taken at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  This came out to an average take of 0.93 ducks per gun or, with the Coots added in to the total, 0.98 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that out of 50 reservation cards issued 25 hunters arrived in 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.
