I just recently received permission to hunt on a large piece of property. It has little to no pressure at all on it. The landowners watch the deer coming and going on it every day. The only problem is they want me to wait until late August or early September to come out and scout and put my stands up. That's only 4 weeks before the season starts. I would like to get out there and put up a camera or two and get at least a couple of stands. Should I try asking again and explain a little better why I would like to get in there now? Or should I just wait and make them happy so I don't possibly blow a chance to get access on a good piece of property. Opinions would be greatly appreciated.

What I would probably do is
What I would probably do is if you know the landowners a little bit like you talk to them every now and then I would go knock on there door and say I thought about what you said with me coming out 4 weeks before the season starts. But I was wondering if I could come out a little sooner and scout some. But if you don't know them very well then I would wait untill next season. They might get to know you better and let you go scout earlier.

for me. 4 weeks is plenty of
for me. 4 weeks is plenty of time to do some scouting and hang a couple cams and the last week before the season put up a couple stands, if they said they wanted you to wait I'd wait and not blow the chance of hunting there.

I know them pretty good.
I know them pretty good. They are my wife's aunt and uncle. They have hardly ever let anyone hunt there. But they are now getting frustrated because the deer and turkey are eating all of their plants and they want them out of there.

I dunno'... Maybe you could get your wife to give them a call in passing or something and say how antsy you are and driving her crazy. Please let him come early so I can get him out of the house and keep my sanity type thing, LOL!
Good luck... ;-)

I would ask them about
I would ask them about placing a camera out there but not the stands you can put them in the week before and be fine. If they let you place the camera show them the pictures that you get off of it.

I would respect their wishes
I would respect their wishes since it is their property and let are letting you hunt on it. Maybe after this season and getting to know them better next year you can work on getting set up earlier
