Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 1/12/22

The waterfowl average bag at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area stayed nearly identical to Saturday’s good average under partly cloudy conditions with temperatures ranging from the low 40s to the mid-70s. Shovelers remained out in front holding down the first position for number of birds checked in with Green Wing Teal again holding the second spot. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/12/22 were as follows:

148 adult and 5 junior hunters harvested 193 Northern Shovelers, 4 Mallards, 33 Gadwall, 18 Widgeon, 9 Pintail, 87 Green Wing Teal, 3 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Canvasback, 6 Ring Necks, and 24 Ruddy Ducks. No Geese were bagged at San Jacinto on Wednesday. 7 Coots were downed at San Jacinto on Wednesday. This worked out to an average bag of 2.54 ducks per gun or, with the Coots worked into the total, 2.59 waterfowl per person. Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards issued 29 hunting parties showed up in 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.
