    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.

    “This Is My Creed I believe first in God, the same God in which my ancestors believed. I believe in Jesus Christ and that he is my saviour. Second, I believe in the Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America, without interpretation, as it was written and meant to work. I have given my sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I intend to fulfill that oath. Third, I believe in the family unit and, in particular, my family unit. I have sworn that I will give my life, if it is required, in defense of God, the Constitution, or my family. Fourth, I believe that any man without principles that he is ready and willing to die for at any given moment is already dead and is of no use or consequence whatsoever.

    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.
