Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Saturday – 1/26/19

The average waterfowl take at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area slipped back a little as compared to Wednesday’s averages under partly cloudy skies with temperatures that climbed into the mid-70’s.  Shovelers held on to the number one spot for number of birds taken with Gadwall taking over the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Saturday, 1/26/19 were as follows:

136 adult and 17 junior hunters bagged 77 Shovelers, 10 Mallards, 39 Gadwall, 7 Widgeon, 5 Pintail, 35 Green Wing Teal, 24 Cinnamon Teal, 5 Bufflehead, and 15 Ruddy Ducks. Again, no Geese were bagged at San Jacinto on Saturday.  23 Coots were checked in at San Jacinto on Saturday.  This worked out to an average harvest of 1.42 ducks per gun or, with the Coots included, 1.57 waterfowl for each person. Out of 52 reservation cards issued 28 arrived on time to claim their spot.

Well, that’s it for the 2018/2019 regular waterfowl season. Junior hunters have one more chance at those elusive waterfowl, next Saturday, February 2nd.  If you’re a junior hunter or you have a junior hunter in the family, here’s hoping you’ll take advantage of San Jacinto’s Annual Junior Waterfowl hunt, next Saturday, 2/2/19. Here’s hoping the Juniors have a great hunt!  If your junior hunter doesn’t have a reservation for the Junior Hunt he or she can still get in on the sweatline drawing, just like any regular hunt day, by showing up at SJ at 3 AM to get their name in on the sweatline drawing.  For more information, contact the staff at San Jacinto at 951-928-0580.

The average waterfowl bag at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area climbed back upward as compared to Saturday’s numbers under clear skies with temperatures that started just at freezing and climbed to just touch 70 degrees.  Shovelers were the number one bird taken and, if you didn’t count Coots, which would have been the number two bird, Green Wing Teal took over the second spot, but only by one bird over Gadwall.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/23/19 were as follows:

121 adult and 5 junior hunters bagged 83 Shovelers, 2 Mallards, 30 Gadwall, 5 Widgeon, 5 Pintail, 31 Green Wing Teal, 22 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Ring Neck, 1 Blue Wing Teal, 8 Bufflehead, and 27 Ruddy Ducks.

Out of 52 reservation cards issued only 19 showed up on time to claim their spot.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. At this point in the season, it is now too late to put in for reservations online through the DFW Automated License Data System (ALDS).   You can still get in on the daily “sweat line” drawing for the remaining blinds after the reservations are taken care of. Reservation spots are given out starting at 3 AM and the “sweat line” drawing is at 3:30 AM.

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.
