Tuscumbia Wildlife Management Area
Tuscumbia Wildlife Management Area (TWMA) is located in Alcorn County near Corinth and is comprised of approximately 2,600 acres of state owned land located in northern Alcorn County, approximately three miles west and northwest of Corinth, MS.  This is a relatively new area, established in 1999.  The TWMA is split into two separate blocks of land known as Unit 1 (1400 ac.) and Unit 2 (1200 ac.) for management purposes.

Unit 1, the northern most block of land, is primarily swamp bottomland with limited access by foot and boat. Only a small portion of Unit 1 on the northeast corner is accessible to the public for land access.  The remainder of the area is surrounded by private property.  The primary species hunted on Unit 1 is waterfowl. 

The southern block of land, Unit 2, was mostly abandoned agricultural fields before the waterfowl impoundments were created.  Unit 2 also has some good deer and rabbit habitat and limited hunting opportunity (scheduled around waterfowl hunting) is being allowed. 

This WMA has excellent birding opportunities based on the variety of habitat types.  Many species of marsh birds benefit from the management practices implemented for waterfowl.  Some of the marsh birds that are frequently sighted are great blue heron, green heron, American bittern, rail, purple gallinule and egrets. 

From Corinth, take Hwy 72 West. Turn north onto Alcorn Rd and go past the hospital. At the fork just north of the hospital, bear left. Turn right at concrete bridge onto County Road 750. The headquarters building is 2 miles on the left.
