Northern Mass. and Southern NH

I was hoping to get some advice. I'm new to hunting, just took my hunters safety course, and have been reading your posts and trying to glean a few tips to make my first season successful. From what I've read so far scouting the terrain is the the biggest key. What I would like from the forum is: What are some tips on asking permission from private landowners and farmers.

Be yourself, be polite whether or not they let you hunt it, prove to them you are responsible ethical hunter, you will respcet their land & you will not hold them accountable if something happens that is not their fault ( most I have incountered their concern is being sued or people trashing their land) Oh & small gifts never hurt

Thanks guys,
I appreciate the insight. Can I pick your brains about best places to start scouting? There are a couple of orchards around here as well as a small pumkin farm and a couple of corn field and family farms.

the orchard then corn really are a tie then the pumpkin farm assuming your deer hunting.the time to ask is now in the summer just look around first and make sure they aint busy first.the crop comes first.you might want to offer to help around the place.i got a buddy that trades handyman services for access

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
