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."
