    theres a farmer around my way nicked named "manners" as he a serious lack of them. I asked a couple of people about who owns particular fields and was told in no uncertain terms not to bother as he would chase you. during the bad freeze last year i noticed a dog fox in with sheep two mornings in a row, i called in to the yard and mentioned to him that i was passing on the way back from shooting foxes and seen a fox two mornings in a row in a field with sheep and he should keep any eye out for it. To cut along story short he told me to shoot away in any of the fields and to keep an eye for dogs as well. If i called in to ask for permission he would have chased me.

    some are a little easier to get on with than others.

    When calling on farmers whilst looking for shooting you are often judged by whoever has had the shooting before you and the grumpy reaction of some landowners has nowt to do with you. At the beginning of the year just as lambing was starting I obtained the shooting of fox on a 1000 acre piece of ground. First couple of times out the farmer wanted to accompany me. Then it was "just do that couple of fields", now after a good few fox, pigeon and crows I have the whole farm including deer and am running a very nice pheasant syndicate shoot. I have a very good relationship with the landowner, do a bit of work for him, check the security of the farm buildings (especially if I know he is out for the evening) whilst out lamping, phone him if I see any problems with his livestock, never take for granted who owns the land and that his business comes first and always catch up with him the day after a syndicate shoot and pass on the lads thanks for a good day.

    Turns out that although the farmer wanted foxes controlled he has had bad times with guys supposedly shooting fox but taking deer instead, guys paying absolutely no respect to his property and livestock and generally just taking the p1ss. Do it right and your reputation soon spreads and offers do come to you.
