lots of great info.

Managed to pick up another farm over the weekend. Have shot there a couple of times and always let the farmer know how I get on. Was talking to him on Friday and he said "you do realise you dont have to ask everytime you want to come up, just text me so I know that you are here"

Im in hospital recovering from my heart attack rabbiter!! Great to see you back.

I see aunty Chris got his knickers in a knot about my previous post, if he didn't take that as a bit of a joke he should maybe arrange to see Mr Kim Dotcom!

But in what was orginally said and all the following is what farmers think etc. Some of you are "townies" so need to know how country folk work, and in Rabbiters and mine and others responses will help you a lot to approach farmers.

Some people will do anything for a bit of attention.  Cheesy

Seriously? Now youve really got me worried, guy with a life style like yours gets a heart attack.?  Tongue

Hi guys

Just wanted to drop a thank you message on here. Followed the advise outlined in this thread and secured a place to cull bunnies. Being in an area where it is a little harder to find a shooting spot, I can't be happier. Cheers
  

aim,take the safety off...and dance

Sad to say my first oost on here was one of those 'where can I go hunting..' Haha have since learned and have sorted myself 4 blocks to hunt on. As previously said if you shoot something let the owner know and maybe drop him off a backsteak or leg or something. I'm only 17 and one guy was a bit skeptical about givin me acess so he gave me acess for a day to see how I went.shot a deer and gave him a back leg. Know I have the keys for the gate. A little gift/ respect goes a long way

Over the weekend I dropped off a bottle of wine, fresh baking courtesy of the missus and a card to a cocky on whose property I hunt ducks and bunnies. Merry Xmas, thanks for letting us hunt, I said. Took one of my three youngsters with me and he later asked why we give the farmer and his wife so much (we drop off fresh baking once a month or so).
'Mate', I said, 'by doing this, you're showing respect and gratitude and in doing so, possibly setting yourself up to be allowed to hunt here for the rest of your life.' He got it, and then suggested he mows their lawn !  Wink

Asking honestly without coming on strong about how youll solve all his pest problems is the best policy.. I find it productive to just ask if there is a patch somewhere you could hone your skills on. Being humble  is always better than being arrogant.

The other thing is to shoot it alone for a while before asking if you can bring 20 MATES WITH YOU .. that doesn't usually go off to well. Grin

Glad to hear you guys are having some success.

I had a rabbit bolt out from under a tight heap of branches today .He travelled around the back of the tractor shed and went to shoot under a small garden shed on skids .He was almost under it when I took the shot ,yep got him but blew a bit of tin off the bottom of iron just above ground level .Later the farmer arrived home ,so after he asked how had I done & all the rest of the small talk ,I took him over and pointed out the damage & said sorry ,to which he replyed " nothing major ,don't worry about that ,no real damage done ,.......did you get the rabbit ?" .Now anybody can make a mistake however its what you after you have made a boo boo is what counts ,be up front at all times .It pays in the long run ,sure in this case, he may not of noticed for days ,weeks or even years however doing the right thing is by far ALWAYS the best bet .
