I killed my first hog on Fort Benning in 2000. They got some big motorscooters too. Lots of deer and turkey too.

Most military installations have big hunting programs, but limited to bow/crossbow, shotgun slugs, or muzzleloaders (not sure about Benning anymore...they used to allow rifles). Usually, you can access the training (hunting) areas without entering the main cantonment area and passing through gated checkpoints.
hang up and drive

First of all you must be military, retired military, civil service or their guest to hunt on post. The way it used to work is you had to get a permit from the provost marshall to hunt.
All of fort benning is divided into different areas. They have a call in system that tells you what areas are open and you sign in to whatever area you are hunting over the phone.

They do allow rifle hunting for deer in certain areas and some areas are shotgun only. Turkey hunting is awesome.
Wish I had access to it but unfortunately not.

Since 9/11 they have tried to close off every access point. You used to be able to get in there from anywhere around the city of Columbus.

Have to be Active/Retired or a guest in the company of one. Liscense from outdoor rec. Not sure, haven't looked for a while, but until turkey season, in the right area, you can still use centerfire. They also have bow/shotgun/pistol areas. However, they have had a bounty($25) per tail for about a 6 months now. The boys have been out there slaying them from what heard. Here's a link.

i wonder why it's so restrictive at Benning? At Fort Stewart, anyone who has passed the hunter's safety course and has a hunting license can get a Fort Stewart hunting/fishing pass.
