    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Hey guys,

    Just thought i'd say I got my first permission today ....spoke to the landowner on the phone and ive just to go over with my gear etc and he'll show me where my boundaries are etc.

    He has about 7 or 8 fields so he said I have the 'run of them' and can just go up when I want ... no problems.

    He's also on good terms with the surrounding farmers (as he's an older guy so knows the area and the farming community well) .... so a wee bit of luck I might end up with a few neighbouring permissions and widen the acreage a bit.

    But it was hard work ... the amount of refusals etc before you get that one that makes it all worthwhile..... thank god !!!! lol

    So whats the norm fella's for the landowner ... a bottle every few months? Whats 'good form' so to speak?

    All the best guys

    well done on the permission,enjoy,and as bradley says dont go over the top with gifts,because if the farmer has a word about you shooting on other farms and says you give him a bottle every few months the rest will want the same,then its going to cost you a fortune to keep them in drink.dont go over the top with permissions if your a lone shooter,dont over stretch yourself with to much land to cover,better to have a small amount of land and do a good job,than have to much land and do a crap job,result loss of permission.

    This is spot on and will keep you in the good books :up:

    Same again as above, having too many permissions ends in a problem, you are out all hours and have no spare time and Mrs goes mad and home life suffers and if you don't hunt on it the farmer thinks your not right good and will boot you off. It's a balancing act but you have to get it right ;):up:

    That makes perfect sense guys .... to keep the acreage to a manageable amount and do the job properly rather than be spread too thin as it were. Valuable advice that I will heed for sure :) ....and yeah I can imagine it taking you away from the wife etc which isnt always a positive hahahahaha. Excellent and wise advice :)

    worth taking a pathfinder map with you and marking all permissions on it.. and offering the farmer a pick of your bag when you shoot too..
