Welcome to O'Keefe Wildlife Management Area (WMA). O'Keefe
WMA is an island of bottomland hardwood forest rises from a sea of
soybeans, corn, and rice in the Northwest Delta of Mississippi.
This 5,914 acre WMA located south of Lambert in
Quitman County, represents one of the few remaining contiguous
tracts of timber in the Mississippi delta. The Mississippi
Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks purchased the land
from the Mississippi Department of Corrections in 2001, and the
area has since provided enjoyment to hunters and homes for game and
non-game species of wildlife. O'Keefe WMA is intensively
managed for waterfowl. Sportsmen and women can choose to hunt
600 acres of flooded fields or flooded timber in the greentree
reservoir. In addition to waterfowl, deer and gray squirrel
hunting are also popular. Migratory songbirds and
waterbirds are also seasonally abundant on O'Keefe
WMA. Come see us.
