Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 29th Annual Junior Hunt, Saturday – 2/4/23

San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s 29th Annual Junior Waterfowl Hunt on Saturday, February 4th, resulted in a very good average bag for the Junior Hunters in participating. Shovelers were the number one bird taken by the Junior Hunters with Green Wing Teal found in the second spot. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl harvest for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/4/23, was as follows:

74 junior hunters came away with 85 Northern Shovelers, 2 Mallards, 6 Gadwall, 1 Widgeon, 6 Pintail, 62 Green Wing Teal, 26 Cinnamon Teal, 2 Ring Necks, 9 Bufflehead, and 4 Ruddy Ducks. No Geese were bagged by the Junior Hunt on Saturday. There were also 3 Coots checked in by the Junior Hunters on Saturday. This figured out to an average bag of 2.74 Ducks per Junior Hunter or, with the Coots included in the total, a 2.78 waterfowl average for each Junior Hunter. Tom advised that out of 50 reservations issued 21 of the Junior Hunters showed up on time to get their spot.

Ok, that’s it for the Junior Hunters for the 2022/2023 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 next Saturday, February 11th 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.
