Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s Veteran/Active Duty Military Hunt, Saturday – 2/11/23

San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s Veteran/Active Duty Military Hunt on Saturday, February 11th, resulted in a great average harvest for our Military Heroes participating. Shovelers were the number one bird checked in by the Military Vets/Active Duty Hunters with Green Wing Teal in the second position. Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the waterfowl take for the Veteran/Active Duty Military Hunt on Saturday, 2/11/23, was as follows:

91 Military Vets/Active Duty Hunters came away with 188 Northern Shovelers, 4 Mallards, 27 Gadwall, 8 Widgeon, 34 Pintail, 88 Green Wing Teal, 61 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 4 Ring Necks,1 Scaup, 8 Bufflehead, and 13 Ruddy Ducks. 4 Canada Geese were bagged by the Hunters on Saturday. 9 Coots were checked in by the Veteran/Active Duty Military Hunters on Saturday. This worked out to an average harvest of 4.80 Ducks per hunter or, with the Geese and Coots considered in the total, a 4.95 waterfowl average for each gun. Tom advised that out of 52 reservations issued 25 showed up in time to claim their hunting spot.

So, that completes the 2022/2023 Waterfowl Season at San Jacinto Wildlife Area. Watch for SoCalHunt’s San Jacinto season long stats report here soon.

On a side note, today’s Veteran/Active Duty Military hunt was the last hunt day in the long career of Tom Trakes. Tom has worked for the Department of Fish and Wildlife for 29 years and anybody that know Tom knows the SJWA will not be the same without him. The DFW has some big shoes to fill at San Jacinto and, hopefully they can find someone with at least half the dedication and customer service that Tom has. I’m sure everyone will join me in wishing Tom a great retirement.
