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

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.
