Getting permission from landowner?
This is from my buck lickers mineral thread but I thought I'd start a new thread cause it's of a different topic.
So there's about 140 acres of land behind our house owned by a very rich business guy who lives mainly in colorado but also has a $25mil house on top of an adjacent knoll. The 140 acres is mostly field with some paved driveways, a few sculptures, a pond decorated with really nice landscaping, and a couple buildings that were renovated from and old barn and an old pavillion.
Now I see a lot of deer back there, and there's a couple nice bucks that look to be pushing the 130" range. I'd love to hunt them but I need to get permission first (obviously). I just discovered that this land is right outside of city limits, so I can use a gun and all that.
There have been construction workers working on this property for the past year and a half every day except sundays and holidays (and really bad weather). Recently, I've noticed a guy driving around at dusk scaring deer away from the landscaping where they put down fresh sod. I imagine the deer are becoming a pest to them.
So how should I go about asking permission to hunt on the land? Could I talk to one of the workers who scares off the deer and see if he can get a deal with the landowner for me to hunt? Since they don't want the deer it seems like I might have a chance at hunting. But what's the best way to ask permission?
Thanks for any advice
