Hunting is considered a sport but this particular sport has many restrictions when it comes to obtaining permission. After all, you cannot hunt just anywhere (or anything). There are laws that govern where and what you can hunt and you have to abide by them. If there is a particular area where you want to hunt in, you will need to find out who it belongs to and then acquire hunting permission from them. If you decide to just up and go and begin the sport without permission, you may be liable for punishment and fine according to the law.
Writing a hunting permission letter is the way to do this. Asking the owner of the property where you want to hunt if he or she is okay with it is foremost. Your letter should introduce you (provide information of your background), and lay out facts about your hunting licenses. If all is in order, and the land owner deems it alright for you to hunt, you will receive permission immediately. If not, well, there are other places to look into.
In your hunting permission letter, make sure that you provide reasons for hunting – even if it is merely sport. Looking for heads up? Here is a sample to help you:

Dear Mr. Steenkamp:
I am writing to you to obtain permission to hunt on your property during spring 2017. Jeeve’s Property has been one of the best hunting grounds for over 5 years now, and I have heard so much about it that I cannot help but ask if I might gain hunting experience at one of the best hunting places in Austin.
Both my wife and I are avid hunters and have been quite successful in our hunting endeavors over the years. Both of us have our hunting licenses updated and are willing to provide you with copies if you require them. We are aware of the rules governing game hunting of rare or near-extinct animals and birds and we respect these regulations. If there are any additional rules or protocols that you want us to abide by, we will do so without questioning them.
If possible at your end, I would like to stop by at your place next week to discuss this further. Please let me know if this is possible – if you would rather meet earlier or later than next week, please let me know at (333) 333-3333.
