So I searched through the forum for this and didn't really see what I was looking for. I'm newer to the forum as well as fossil hunting/collecting as a whole. And I'm curious as to how you guys get permission to search on private property out of state. I like to travel here and there, and would like to make some trips to maybe explore and find some cool fossils in other states. But would hate to make a trip just to get denied access and end up wasting the trip. And I'm just wondering how others may go about it if they plan trips within areas of private property.
DeepTimeIsotopes posted a topic in Collecting GearAlright, so I noticed there isn't really a go-to form on the internet for asking permission from private property owners to collect on their land. So I compiled all the requests and suggested clauses from here: and here and here and several other private property permission forms into one specifically for fossil, mineral, and rock collectors. I put it all into these documents as a general cover-all forms.
