The Northwest Mississippi region is known as a sportsman’s haven with forests and wetland areas that offer unparalleled hunting and fishing resources for outdoor sportsmen. The Mississippi River demarcates the most important flyway for waterfowl in North American, while three rivers run through this region, including the Coldwater, the Big and Little Tallahatchie.

The O’Keefe Wildlife Management area (WMA) represents one of the few remaining contiguous tracts of timber in the Mississippi Delta, and the area provides enjoyment to hunters and homes for game and non-game species of wildlife. Migratory songbirds and water birds are also seasonally abundant on O’Keefe WMA (www.mdwfp.com).
