Drive thru it almost daily but have never hunted on the base. It is HUGE though and I have seen some nice deer along the side of the road.
You can contact the Jackson Guard for specfic information, but I don't believe that modern rifles are allowed, only muzzleloaders, shotguns and archery.
The security on this base is very tight, as they test and develop some serious stuff out there so dont stray from open areas into sensitive areas.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
