    Not sure where to ask this question, so move it if need be.

    Does anyone have an example of a simple "permission to hunt" form?

    I want to have it already printed out for the landowner to sign.

    I don't want it to sound to much like a lawyer wrote it.

    Just enough information so the game warden will be satisfied.

    I've always just written them out, both parties sign. I have been asked to sign a liability release before also, again handwritten and signed.

    Simple is the easiest way.

    Wonder if NC has anything similar?

    Looks like I'm going to have to come up with something with similar info.

    Do I have to get permission to use a centerfire rifle?

    Or, does it make any difference?

    Another thing, would you request an indefinite time period or just one calendar year or seasonal hunting with valid hunting license?

    This is a copy of the cards we hand out at hunter ed classes. They are printed on card stock and perferated. Land owners seem to like the fact that each party keeps part of the form. Hope it helps

    At first I will usually ask for a season for deer. I ask for a day for pheasant and quail ect. The at the end of the day stop by and thank the landowner graciously for letting you hunt. Offer them some meat if they want. I will hand over a backstrap in a heart beat if it gets me invited back. I have one farmer who owns roughly 800 acres that I hunt. I stop by his house several times a year. I walk fences and make repairs or at least tell him about them. A handful of tomatoes from the garden, a jar of homemade salsa, a dozen farm eggs. Little things make a huge diffrence.

    Arizona has its perks, too. Of all the land in AZ (aside from the reservations), only about 12% is privately owned, including all the land that makes up municipalities. Now if only we had some kind of game that we could freely hunt.

    Huh, never heard of written permission before, but it's been many years since I've hunted, and it was usually on relatives' land. Looks like an outstanding idea though. CYA cards!

    It is an optional land owner protection in Tennessee. The land owner has to put up a bunch of signs on his/her property to gain the extra protection. In return, it makes it much easier on the wildlife police to figure out if someone should really be hunting there. If the land is posted, then anyone hunting must have the signed card. If they don't have the card then anyone caught hunting without one is breaking the law.

    It simplifies identifying the bad guys. It also provides a formal CYA for people doing what they should be...getting permission to hunt.

    I drafted this doc. You may make as many copies as you wish without copyright concerns.

    The rules vary by county (and perhaps even city) in NC. In the county I hunt in the written authorization must indicate that we have permission to use a centerfired rifle. Local rules are summarized in the booklet the wildlife commission prints out.

    These are good things to be required. You would not believe the trash and destruction some hunters leave behind. In OH you have to have a written consent form from the landowner. Even if it is family, and you are not immediate family, you need written permission.

    I got this from a friend upon whose lease I hunted once. I guess he wants me to sign it in case he ever invites me back.
