As a landowner all my property is posted. Most of you will quit reading right there as most do my signs. WITHOUT PERMISSION they fail to read that. I save some areas but allow other areas to keep my kids safe and other hunters safe. Here are tips I feel might get you permission. 1. Dont show up opening morning!! 2. Dont show up dressed like a slob or alcohol on your breath 3. Ask if landowner knows of anyone who allows hunting. This is none threathing and most know someone or may let you hunt on their property. 4. The earlier you ask the better chance you have. 5. Ask about varmit hunting!! A year of getting rid of varmits will let landowner observe you and may get you a ticket into hunt deer or whatever you are hunting. 6. Introduce yourself and whoever you plan to take with you . The smaller number the better!! 7. Ask if there are any chores (fence repairing, weeding, etc. that you could help with) 8. Always share a choice cut of game taken to landowner 9. Dont forget to thank them successful or not. 10. Send a thankyou card !!! or gift certificate to special diner in area! Good luck!!!
