Hi pauliboy,

Thank you for your question.  

Because laws vary from state to state and county to county, the first
thing you'll want to do is inquire about your local laws and

Contact either the USDA or CSREES.  I've provided the links for you. 
Click on your state map, and then click on your county.  The links
will take you to your local contact information.

Local USDA Service Centers

Click on your state, then click on your county.  You'll find local

A very informative article titled "Chipmunks" can be found at:

(For legal status scroll to Legal Status - page 3)

"Chipmunks are not protected by federal
law, but state and local regulations
may apply. Most states allow landowners
or tenants to take chipmunks
when they are causing or about to
cause damage. Some states, (for
example, Georgia, North Carolina, and
Arkansas) require a permit to kill
nongame animals. Other states are
currently developing laws to protect
all nongame species. Consult your local
conservation agency or USDAAPHIS-
ADC personnel for the legal
status of chipmunks in your state."
