    Go knocking on doors is your best option, act responsible and listen to what the landowner says regarding areas of 'no-go' and what's in the background. Do this during the day and don't show up with firearms when asking permission, just count the first trip as a reply. Expect a few doors to shut in your face but theres surely one or two around d who will say yes

    Yep I agree the only way is cold calling. I would say I have about an 80% success rate by cold calling. Be respecful and don't call at meal times. Be prepared to have a yarn and chew the fat. Good luck.
