I'm not looking for easy ground or your ground. I do have a permission already an hour and a half away but would like something closer to home that I can get out on more regularly. I'll put in the legwork to try and secure this.
But when you go knocking on doors looking for permission and you get a 'yes', what is 'accepted' practice to document the permission?
Do you take a pre-prepared letter of permission with you in case you get lucky? Do you handshake and follow up with written permission? Do you take the lead or let the farmer/ landowner lead? What does it need to spell out?
Would appreciate any hints or tips.
