According to the website there are quite a few hunts for people who hold WSMR badges.

Is this just a military ID?

I am on the other side of the planet, I was hoping someone would know. I called and left a message but everyone that knew was out of the office.

The badge hunts are intended for those with "Connections" more or less. Those working on WSMR have to have a security clearance...a badge. If you know someone with that security clearance and they are willing to accompany you at all times on your hunt, then its a good option. Visit with them about the particulars prior to putting in. Also know that they are only allowed to escort you at times they wouldn't ordinarily be working, so you are effectively limited to weekends really.

It's a shoot... Not a hunt just to clear things up a bit. Been there done that, not too impressive. It did make a beautiful mount though :)
