Which argument/reason have you had most success in gaining/keeping a permission?
I need to establish contact with the new owners of a small pocket of land I have that has a nice population of muntys (and a few million rabbits)...
The last owners were family friends, kept a few sheep on their 30 acres, happy for me to come down whenever, take a munty and some rabbits for the pot.
New owners - I don't know them, no contact yet, they've been in about 2 months and I feel it's about time for me to get down there (didn't want to rush it/push it too early).
So... best approach?
Do I go down the "munty problem", previous owners asked me to keep the number down (but not eradicate), destroying their plants, danger on the road, etc..
Previous owners knew I was keen on shooting, enjoy a good venison steak once in a while and liked me coming down, especially when they were on holiday as kept up an air of "people about the place".
Do I say, I knew previous owners, they weren't to bothered about the rabbits, happy to come down try and knock down the population a bit for them, also keep the muntys in check and few rabbits/venison for their pot...
