I going to start asking permision to hunt some farms for geese. I never had any luck in the past. Anybody have any tips about going about this?

I always scout before asking so as to not beat myself up in the asking for marginial properties. I ask for permission for "waterfowl and doves and ground hogs an stuff like that." Asking for permission for deer up here is a usless cause.

I also offer a release of liability form as soon as they start thinking. It goes a long way when they know your willing to offer it.

Offer to help them out and tell them to call you if they need help around. Most will not but some will.

You can also try starting with farmers that are leasing land. Some of these guys are planting fron a couple hundred up to a thousand or so and themight be willing to point you the right way. starting with groundhogs is a good start. There aren't many that like them because of how much of a crop they will eat up over a season. Also, look for cattle farmers. Green pastures + stock ponds + grain fed cattle that don't completely digest = lots of geese.
