There is a wooded property near my house that I'd like to get permission to hunt. Through the great Internet I have found a little on the landowner. He is a doctor in west Tennessee. I believe I found the phone number to his office. His father lives across the street from the property but behind a gated driveway. The property itself hasn't been posted in years. Only the occasional "no hunting" metal sign with faded words and you have to look to find them. I have thought I might pick up some litter and offer to post the property in exchange for permission to hunt. Should I try to get in touch with the owners father across the street or should I talk to the owner directly? I'd prefer to talk to the owner himself but also prefer face to face rather than by phone. I think the owners dad is pretty old. Any advice would be appreciated. I'd like to have the best shot at getting permission to bow hunt for deer this fall. I know the answer still may very well be "no" but I'd like to talk to the right person and present myself as best as possible.
