The Daniel Boone National Forest is home to a wide variety of game species, including deer, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, quail, woodcock, squirrel, rabbit, fox, raccoon, waterfowl, and elk. Hunting is allowed in most areas of the Daniel Boone National Forest with appropriate Kentucky hunting licenses. Seasons, bag limits, and license requirements are determined by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Private land is often interspersed with public land within the Daniel Boone National Forest. When hunting in areas with private land inholdings, make sure to obtain written permission from private landowners to hunt on their property or use a detailed map to ensure that you do not inadvertently stray off the National Forest onto privately-owned land.
