Getting permission

Postby Mallyard » Mon Aug 01, 2005 1:13 pm

Have you guys noticed lately how hard it is to get permission on private property?
I scouted potential ponds a few days back, got about 12 ponds that looked like they might hold ducks during season. I sat down this morning and spent over an hour calling land owners, not one person gave me permission. I also know a guy that used to let people hunt his property with no second thought, now he won't let anyone hunt it. No matter if he gave you permission years ago and treated his land with the utmost respect. I don't have the money to lease all these ponds for 100 bucks a peice, and land owners don't seem to egar to let you help them with chores around their place for hunting/fishing rights to there property. I don't know what I'm going to do. Guess I'll have to stick with the public hunting and fight all the weekend warriors and people that are just out there to have a few beers with the guys. UUGGGHHH :pissed:

I'm upset.
