What WW said.
I'm the legal caretaker for a property. The owner is not local, but he rents out a home on the property. The residents (renters) in that home do NOT have the authority to grant/revoke hunting access to the property. There are several of us named by the owner to act in his stead, and the renters are not on that list.
In my case, if the renters gave hunting permission to someone, I'd be more than a little irritated by it, because it would cause some real issues for me to clean up once I even found out about what was going on. I've been very grateful that so far, we've had good relationships with the tenants in the home there, and have always shared our harvest with each family that's lived there over the years, helped them if they needed something, and generally tried to have a good interaction. That has paid off in that the renters have helped us out with reporting odd things they've seen, and helped us track down potential problems. Honestly, I think they feel glad they don't have to say yes or no when people ask to hunt.
Definitely best to verify that the resident is authorized to give permission.
