Mahannah Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is located in Warren and Issaquena counties, approximately 15 miles north of Vicksburg, Mississippi. The WMA consists of approximately 12,695 acres of bottomland hardwoods, agriculture fields, hardwood reforestation, and waterfowl impoundments. Mahannah WMA is part of one of the most ecologically intact and biologically diverse bottomland hardwood ecosystems in the Mississippi Delta. The area is a unique balance of flooding timber, cypress swamps, and controlled flooded agricultural lands. This diverse land provides habitat for some of the largest concentrations of wintering waterfowl in the Mississippi Delta.
The area provides habitats for various species of wintering waterfowls. Shallow areas are used by puddle ducks and the deeper water is used by diving ducks. Mallards are the primary species; however, northern shoveler, canvasback, blue-winged teal, green-winged teal, gadwall, northern pintail, wood duck, American widgeon and others are abundant.
