Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 28th Annual Junior Hunt, Saturday – 2/5/22

San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 28th Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt on Saturday, February 5th, resulted in a very good average harvest for the Junior Hunters in attendance. Shovelers were the number one bird checked in by the Junior Hunters with Green Wing Teal showing up in the second spot. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl take for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/5/22, was as follows:

101 junior hunters took home 104 Northern Shovelers, 6 Mallards, 23 Gadwall, 2 Widgeon, 11 Pintail, 66 Green Wing Teal, 15 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Canvasback, 1 Bufflehead, and 19 Ruddy Ducks. 1 Canada Goose and 1 White Fronted Goose were taken at the Junior Hunt on Saturday. There were 12 Coots bagged by the Junior Hunters on Saturday. This figured out to an average bag of 2.46 ducks per Junior Hunter or, with the Geese and Coots included in the total, a 2.59 waterfowl average for each Junior Hunter. Tom advised that out of 50 reservations issued 25 of the Junior Hunters arrived on time to claim 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. The after season Veteran/Active Duty Military hunt, which will be held on Saturday, February 12th 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.
