It is getting harder and harder to find land to hunt on. So how do you get permission to hunt on private land ? I know here in West Virginia, the farmers don't like the deer eating and damaging their profits but they don't want strangers on their land because of the lawsuits. One way I have tried is to walk right up to the door in the daylight and just ask. To my surprise a couple have said yes and then I get it on paper, but most have said no. I also tell them that I will come out and earn my permission and their trust to allow me to hunt. The other way was to try to lease that land but if money is tight then you need a few guys to go in and help pay the lease and you better have a contract made up that you as the hunter are responsible for anything that happens on that land. In my experience on leasing land is that the first couple of years it is great unless the other guys don't harvest any deer then they say, "We are not going to pay for our share of the lease this year" and now your stuck to pay it all. If you know any other ways to get permission, I would love to hear it. Make a great day God bless.
