Squirrel hunting is a great way to start hunting. There are public areas open for hunting at Hiwassee Refuge, McGlothin-Largen WMA, and Chuck Swan State Forest for anyone to come and try it.

There are five species of tree squirrels found in Tennessee. Two species, the southern flying squirrel and the northern flying squirrel, are not hunted. They are small, nocturnal and rarely seen.

For more information on Tennessee hunting seasons and license information, obtain a 2018-19 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide, available at TWRA Regional Offices and at hunting and fishing license agents or go online to TWRA’s website www.tnwildlife.org [2] to view a copy of the guide.
