For all of you youngsters I'd like to give a bit of advice on gaining your own permissions, when I was a youngster I was lucky enough to have been given loads of permissions which were already gained by my family, although it was great I also wanted my own places, so I set about finding some, I must have knocked on twenty doors before someone said yes, but once I had one I would mention that farmers name every time I knocked a new door, most of the time if there's farms in the same area the farmer or land owners will know each other and when you mention there names to each other they will more than likely give you the permission just for the simple fact that they will have known each other for a long time and trust one an others judgement, I have gained countless permissions like this as Iv grown up and now all in I have about 40000 acres, the message inherently is, when you get one, from that you will get more, it worked for me, so keep knocking and in the end it will happen, remember to dress smart and be polite, don't stand at the door with your hands in your pockets and your hood up, and if they say "come back in a few years when your older" do exactly that. Remember you've got to convince them that your trustworthy and know what your doing, good luck :) hope this helps some of you, it worked for me.

The best time to ask is earlier in the year and give them your adress/phone number, then if they say the rabbits for example are under control at the moment then in the summer when the numbers start to dramatically rise they most likely will call you up/knock on your door and ask if you're still up for it
