Oneida County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the Oriskany Flats Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Habitat Management Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Oriskany Flats WMA is located in the Mohawk River flood plain. The WMA is known to have been extensively farmed in the past; a 1938 aerial photo shows virtually the entire area under cultivation. Today, the WMA consists of floodplain forest, emergent marsh, shrub swamp, successional hardwoods, and old field habitat. Some of the last remaining original Mohawk River corridor flows through the WMA. The WMA is situated between two major population centers (Utica and Rome, New York) with over 100,000 people living in the immediate vicinity. The WMA is dedicated to Dave Pierce, a local sportsman active in the Oneida County Sportsman's Federation whose efforts made the acquisition of Oriskany Flats possible in the 1980s. Oriskany Flats WMA is floodplain habitat and was originally intended to be managed for shallow water impoundments, as well as old field management for waterfowl and game bird nesting habitat. The WMA is a popular general hunting destination in Oneida County and is used as a site for stocking adult ring-necked pheasants. Some formalized access has been developed to facilitate public use.

Habitat management goals for Oriskany Flats WMA include:

  • Managing approximately 7% of the WMA (20% of the forested landscape) as young forest (0-10 years) to promote American woodcock, wild turkey, and white-tailed deer habitat;
  • Maintaining approximately 29% as intermediate and mature forested wetland;
  • Managing approximately 30% as early successional shrublands;
  • Managing approximately 7% as grasslands;
  • Continuing agricultural agreements on approximately 4% of the WMA; and
  • Maintaining approximately 22% as wetlands to provide prime breeding and migratory stopover habitat for marsh birds and waterfowl.

The Oriskany Flats WMA is located in the Towns Marcy and Whitestown and the City of Rome, New York.
