Be polite, direct and breif with your inquery and always thank them for their time regardless of their response. Maybe offer up some of the days take if they are so obliged, AND by all MEANS respect their property, that means closing gates behind you that were close when you happened upon them and vs versa. maybe offer up some of your time in return after the fact or make it part of your negotiations. I know parking out on the main drag, not the homes approach/driveway, and walking up to the door works wonders for gaining access to some prime WT country in ID. Initially plan on a 70/30 split, Nea vs Yeah and go from there. Good luck!
