I currently hunt public land but I am hoping to gain access to some private property. For those of you with experience, what is typically the best time of year to approach landowners/farmers? Are weekends better than week days? I am looking at properties in the fairfield/perry/licking county areas.
Thanks

Now is a good time because most farmers are not planting or harvesting. I think you will have better luck in Perry VS Fairfield or Licking. I know Licking county has it's fair share of outfitters and land there is a premium or so I heard. Same thing with Fairfield, very close to Columbus I am sure a lot of those folks knock on doors. Don't know unless you try.......good luck!

That's what I was thinking. I wish the Perry county auditors site had property maps like other counties. Any tips to break the ice to get a conversation started?

Agree with Darron. Now is a good time. I usually go on Sat.mornings. Weekday evenings would be another good time. I say this because a lot of smaller scale farmers may work another job and wont be around on weekdays. I stay from Sundays as people tend to be at church or visiting family.

I have a question that kind of pertains to the permission thing.. As of now I am attempting to get permission to hunt this corporations land for bow season. They have give or take about 800 acres within 1/10th of a mile of me. It is partially farmed and there is a fair bit of woods. I was wondering if I don't get permission. Could I go buy some stock in the company and then be considered a shareholder and therefore make it legal for me to hunt??

Yes I am thinking outside of the box since there are a fair few deer there and I mean really. It's right outside my door.
