Default Wow, what a day at San Jacinto. Even though I was #47, I was the 15th person to pick.

Wow, what a day at San Jacinto. Even though I was #47, I was the 15th person to pick. There must have been 100 people in the sweat line.

We ended up with pond 1, right next to the first parking lot. It was the best day duck hunting I've ever seen. It was like dove season. There were literally hundreds of ducks in the air.

We all ended up with three, but missed MANY more.

All three of us shot almost a full box of ammo. The only problem with pond 1 is without a dog it's tough to find your ducks.

On the positive side, I was the only guy that didn't go swimming

We all should have limited out by 7:00. There was that many ducks, and they were in close.

Now it's leg cramp time...

Sounds like it was it good time out there. Glad you guys picked up a few.

I figured the cold weather in the local mountains would bring down some ducks. Wish I would have sweatlined it today. But didn't have anyone to go with.

Umm, hello, you could have gone with us. Pond 1 didn't have a blind, it's just two big islands.

2.33 average for today at SJ. Over a full bird more than last few weeks averages.

Kicking myself, went fishing today instead, well casting to say the least, skunkolla.

No, we got three a each, but two of us could only find one bird because the reeds are so thick. The other guy found two.

The fact that I missed eight or so right in my face, makes me say it was the best I've ever seen it.

Don't confuse my lack of shooting skills with a lack of birds.

My buddy got a huge banded Mallard out there Saturday, I still haven't been able to get a res yet, I've only waited in sweat line once and had to leave before being able to get in. Now that my kids sports are done hopefully I can make it soon.

Did you let the ducks work your decoys or did you shoot at what ever flew over.
I got chewed out at kesterson because some hunter thought we were sky scraping and it would ruin his ducks coming into his decoys.We gave the guy crap right back that this is not a private club etc.. but now that I think about it I think we were it was just fun shooting....
I should get back into it..

There was no need for decoys, 10 minutes before the buzzer, goof balls were shooting. There were hundreds of birds flying 25 yards over head.

I just kept missing, then by 8:00, not a shoot was being fired.

They weren't looking for decoys, they we're looking to get the hell out of Dodge.

Need to get back to basics Brad: Hold point, look point, brake point, feet and body position, swing with your thighs ....call "Pull" and hit the duck

On a serious note....Timing the "take the bird" takes a bit of experience. Shooting the duck when its flaring right over your head is very tough

No, it is not "Hold point, look point, brake point, feet and body position," It is A300. Use serious gun and you will see the improvement LOL...

Sounds like you all had a great time! I saw the average was up on Saturday and not that many with a resi showed up. Last season I put in for all the drawings at SJ and didn't draw, you gave me some motivation to try to sweatline it.

There were four times as many people in the sweat line as there were in the res line

Also with increasing numbers the number of sweatliners will double and people with ressies will actually show up. This last weekend was probably the best for it. Low numbers the previous weeks, but an influx of birds.

I'm so glad I left California.

Duck hunting has certainly become full retard for some folks. Screw hunting let's "hunt" in a manner you'll have zero chance to kill a decoying bird. Ever wonder why you shoot almost a full box of shells and only have 3 ducks? Then losing how many birds? It's a disgrace.

Then you come on the web chest pounding and give everyone every ounce of data regarding the hunt. Once again something every hunter knows is a golden rule. You were ressi number 47 or whatever and got on quick because people thought it was slow. Now that you've flapped your jaws that ressi number 47 will likely get you in at 47. Just once again disgraceful.

That's why you're taking a beating over at the Fuge.

Yeah, because there's no other mention of San Jacinto anywhere on the web. It's not on Facebook, it's not on the CA Fish and Wildlife website, it's not on the socalhunt website, nope, I'm the guy that let the cat out of the bag.

Grow up.

Lol. You need a mentor. It's a shame you think you're adulting. There is a thing called tradition in duck hunting you should learn about it. I promise not one thing you've shared about duck hunting has supported that tradition.

I won't tell you to grow up but maybe educate yourself. And just because fb and dog has basic info doesn't mean you have to expand and give details on every hunting site like you expected a congrats and pounding your chest lik a 12 year old.

I know people guard their hunny hole like their daughters virginity, but we're talking about a public refuge that's really well known in southern california.

You guys crack me up. If you don't want to read the crap I post, don't.

You were loosing birds because your were pass shooting. A bird with its feet down setting into your decoys is easy next to a teal doing mach 3 by you.

Next time make sure you tell them you are a newbie hunter and have no dog so they can put you in a pond that is not deep. Then make sure you shoot birds that will not drop into the weeds so you can find them.

Here's something the OP didn't think of but hopefully others who read this do. It sounds like 75 shots were taken and only 9 ducks recovered. All of the hunters around you were ****ed by your constantly blasting away and not killing anything as when ducks are decoying and a neighboring blind shoots (or even far away) it flares the birds so that they won't decoy. They then fly off somewhere else and nobody gets an opportunity at them.

Never mind all the cripples you guys wasted. There are laws against that and yes you could be cited for spraying the pond with cripples and not retrieving them regardless if you have a dog or not.

My memory failed me as this is even worse than what I thought it was. Recovering 4 ducks and shooting 75 shells, that tells me they sure weren't as close as you thought they were or; considering I see you posting about all of the skeet and sporting clays places you shoot I wouldn't think you would just flat out miss that many shots up close but who knows. What choke are you using and what shells?

To give you an idea of what is normal/accepted... My father and I killed 8 ducks Saturday, I shot 14 times. I don't know how many he shot but it was that or fewer. 5 of those ducks were pass shooting as wood ducks don't decoy, so we had 3 ducks that decoyed. Frankly I thought I shot poorly since I didn't knock a duck down until my 3rd shot on at least 2 volleys and I flat out missed a big drake gadwall that came in the back door 3x. I don't consider myself a very good shotgun shot.

Man I have to say having to stand in line with 50 other people is just ****in retarded.!!!!!!! Only in this state!!!!! This is why I go to Arkansas and Missouri for my waterfowl hunting!!!!

And if your missing ducks at 25 yards it might be time to reevaluate your shooting skills or hunt something bigger like a tundra swan or ostrich!!!

Have you actually event been to San Jacinto? I'm thinking the birds were spooked WHEN OTHER PEOPLE STARTED SHOOTING TEN MINUTES EARLY.
