Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 11/6/21

The average waterfowl bag at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area ticked down slightly from Wednesday’s average with weather just making it into the 80s under clear skies.  Green Wings Teal were once again found in the first position for number of birds bagged with Shovelers again holding on to the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 11/6/21 were as follows:

174 adult and 4 junior hunters harvested 72 Northern Shovelers, 8 Mallards, 27 Gadwall, 11 Widgeon, 5 Pintail, 81 Green Wing Teal, 9 Cinnamon Teal, 2 Redheads, 3 Canvasbacks, 14 Ring Necks, 15 Bufflehead, 2 Mergansers, 1 Blue Wing Teal, and 9 Ruddy Ducks.  There were no Geese brought into the check station at San Jacinto on Saturday.  2 Coots were also downed on Wednesday.  This came out to an average take of 1.46 ducks per person or, with the Coots added in, an average of 1.47 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards issued 28 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.

Also, just a reminder.  Kern NWR has delayed their opener until Saturday, November 20, 2021, due to water issues so, obviously, there will be no report on Kern’s results until after that date.
