It also helps to ask during spring or summer. Much more likely to be told no if you ask right before or during the season. If you're asking, chances are, you are not the only one. Best of luck!

I like to sit down and hand write a good old fashioned letter. People like getting letters, you don't have to worry about bothering them at a bad time, and you can word everything perfectly. Introduce yourself, tell how you found out about the property, you're experienced, offer to help with work on property, etc. then give your contact info and ask them to call you to discuss hunting rights if they would indulge the conversation. You may not get a call, but if not they would have said no anyway. Something about taking the time to write a letter seems to make a positive impression.

I would advise just the opposite. I have never had a response of any kind from a letter. face to face is always better.

I mailed 100 letters this off season. Netted about 300 acres of land w/in 30 minutes of the house.

Lots of good tips on here.

I also offered labor specifically in my letters.

It would be best if you could find someone that the both of you know in common. Most people arent going to let a stranger hunt, but if someone you both know would put a word in for you, you will be 1000x better off.
