Leave the camo and the big muddy 4x4 at home unless they are into camo and mudding.Get to know them the best you can before planning your visit. Maybe a talk before ever asking to hunt first. or just Dress casual, be polite, respectful, and go ask.

Yeah....don't wear the camo. Just dress decent and be polite. And I usually let them know that I'll respect their property and tryntomleave it better than I found it.

Just tell them your going to hunt the property regardless, you were just trying to give them a heads up.

I'm just kidding, don't try that.

Be polite, offer meat, offer help, let them know how responsible you are.

Never ask permission to you become very good friends,My farms are 75 miles away in Ky.But i visit the small town almost every month during the off season.Most everyone in town knows me and i wave at everyone.Eat at the local cafe and spend your money with the locals.I have some farms i have my eye on but havent asked permission yet.Waiting on that perfect time.If someone else is hunting it i never even ask.The last small farm i picked up cost me about $20 when i bought the farmer and his daughter breakfast one morning.He was already a friend and just purchased this 90 acres.Nothing but a corn field and 2 fence rows.On the way out of the Waffle House he just out of the blue told me where it was and "kill en all" is what he said.
What i'm getting at here is,just make friends with them before you ask.Works for me.
That 90 acre farm with 2 fence rows?Its where i have pics of a 6x5 that will be real close to Boone and Crockett.

One more thing.
Never ask permission when someone else is with you.Get permission for your self first then maybe a year or two later ask if they mind if you bring a friend.

Write a good old fashioned hand written letter introducing yourself, explaining how you know about the property, and tell them you would love the opportunity to talk to them in person about hunting. It will make an impression that you care enough to write a letter and its less intrusive than knocking on a door.

this is the most solid advise I have ever seen, I have given "free" permission to people in the past just because of the posted actions stated above

Twice this year I have asked land owners permission to hunt. I didn't know either all that well but offered to lease (and was willing to pay). I was polite and both gave permission without having to pay. Now I understand with no lease they can call me up at any time and tell me that I can not hunt. I'm ok with that. If the lease amount is too high then you can politely decline. I feel like offering money shows you don't just want something for free. Good luck
