Big South Fork is one of only a few National Park Service units legislated to allow hunting. Big game species found within the park are whitetail deer, turkey and wild boar. In addition, the area is rich in small game species, such as squirrel, raccoon, rabbit, and game birds.
As a unit of the National Park Service, Big South Fork River and Recreation follows standard regulations applying to hunting. In general, the hunting regulations within the Big South Fork are the same as the respective state in which you are hunting. For those hunting in Tennessee, the Tennessee regulations would apply, and for those hunting in Kentucky, the Kentucky regulations would apply.
