Hunt Results for San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Wednesday – 1/2/19

The waterfowl averages at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area stayed almost exactly the same as Saturday’s averages under clear, calm skies with temperatures that started out in the mid-20s and rose to just short of 60 degrees. Again, Coots were actually the most numerous bird bagged but if you didn’t count the coots Green Wing Teal held on to first place for number of ducks checked in with Shovelers holding on to the second spot.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/2/19 were as follows:

123 adult and 4 junior hunters checked in with 32 Shovelers, 10 Mallards, 24 Gadwall, 4 Widgeon, 55 Green Wing Teal, 11 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 2 Ring Necks, 8 Bufflehead, and 22 Ruddy Ducks. A single Ross’ Goose was taken at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  62 Coots were also taken at San Jacinto on Wednesday.  This figured out to an average harvest of 1.33 ducks for each hunter or, with the Goose and Coots added in, 1.83 waterfowl per gun. No information was provided on how many reservations showed up to claim their spot.

San Jacinto is open for waterfowl hunting on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. You can put in for reservations online 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 website at the below link –

Also, San Jacinto’s 25th Annual Junior Hunt is coming up on February 2nd, 2019.  New state regulations, which went into effect 3 years ago, regarding donations for this great event are in effect again this year.  It’s a great cause to donate to as the Junior Hunters are the future of our sport so don’t let a little paperwork keep you from donating. The last day to donate to the Junior Hunt is January 15th.  Details on the procedures for donating can be found at the below link:

Also, don’t let a little paperwork stop you from donating.  It’s not that hard, I know, I’ve done it every year since DFW started this requirement.

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.
