Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/7/23 (corrected)

(Note: the results sheet sent to SoCalHunt by the SJWA yesterday contained several errors. Disregard yesterday’s post regarding SJWA’s hunt results. Below are the corrected numbers)

The average waterfowl take for Saturday at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area went up a bit as compared to Wednesday’s average under cloudy skies with temperatures ranging from the low-40s to the mid-60s. Shovelers remained in first place for number of birds bagged with Green Wing Teal retaining the second position. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/7/23 were as follows:

151 adult and 12 junior hunters harvested 167 Northern Shovelers, 2 Mallards, 22 Gadwall, 16 Widgeon, 10 Pintail, 68 Green Wing Teal, 5 Cinnamon Teal, 3 Ring Necks, 7 Bufflehead, 1 Merganser, and 13 Ruddy Ducks. No Geese were checked in at San Jacinto on Saturday. 18 Coots were downed at San Jacinto on Saturday. This figured out to an average bag of 1.93 ducks per gun or, with the Coots worked into the total, 2.04 waterfowl per hunter. Tom advised that out of 52 reservation cards issued 31 arrived in time to claim their spot.

Donations are needed for the Junior Hunt giveaway. If you are inclined to make a prize or other donation towards the event, which will be on February 4th, 2023, California State procedures for donating are detailed here (and it’s really not that tough, I’ve done it every year since the procedures were implemented):

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.
