    If you present yourself well and don't act like a criminal I think most farmers would be cool with you hunting their fields. Tell them you'll haul out all the iron that would potentially damage their machinery and puncture tires. I doubt any weapons will get pointed at you.

    Be yourself, be up front, be brief, listen carefully. Good Luck!

    Farmers are great people, take the above advice and you should have no problem.

    Oh yeah, stay out of planted fields, of course.

    I read this article a while ago and found it really helpful. Still haven't implemented any of the advice though...too shy. How to Get Permission Without Having to Ask | Detecting365 Metal Detecting Magazine

    Basically, presenting yourself as someone who is interested in the history of their land may soften their hearts a bit. I know I would be more inclined to say yes if that were the case.
