Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 27th Annual Junior Hunt, Saturday – 2/6/21

San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 27th Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt on Saturday, February 6th, resulted in a fair average take for the Junior Hunters in attendance. Cinnamon Teal were the number one bird bagged by the Junior Hunters with Shovelers in the second spot. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl take for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/6/21, was as follows:

107 junior hunters checked in with 26 Northern Shovelers, 1 Mallard, 11 Gadwall, 1 Widgeon, 3 Pintail, 16 Green Wing Teal, 47 Cinnamon Teal, 6 Bufflehead, and 12 Ruddy Ducks. No Geese were downed at the Junior Hunt on Saturday. There were 6 Coots checked in at the Junior Hunt on Saturday. This worked out to an average take of 1.15 ducks per Junior Hunter or, with the Coots included in the total, a 1.21 waterfowl average for each Junior Hunter. Tom advised that out of 50 reservations issued 29 showed up on time for their spot.

Ok, that’s it for the Junior Hunters for the 2020/2021 season.  If you’re a Veteran or an Active Duty Military Member you also have one more chance this season.  For the first time the DFW has authorized an after season Veteran/Active Duty Military hunt which will be held on Saturday, February 13th at San Jacinto.  Hopefully our Vets and Active Duty Heroes will take advantage of this opportunity.  Here’s hoping our Vets and Active Duty have a great hunt!  If you don’t have a reservation for the Vets/Military Hunt you can still get in on the sweatline drawing, just like any regular hunt day, by showing up at SJ at 3 AM to get your name in on the sweatline drawing.  For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580. And, to all our Vets and Active Duty, thank you for your service.
