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.

Scroll down to Eglin Reservation for more info and the phone number for the Jackson Guard

Good Luck
