Here is an interesting article on the use of paint in place of signs to indicate no trespassing.

NC started Purple Paint and written permission in 2011 due to trespassers pulling signs down.

Landowner Protection Act.

Quite a few states are adopting it.  Illinois picked it up in 2011.  The awareness of it is still very low however, and I'm sure plenty of lawyers are using ignorance of the law to get trespassers off the hook.  I think it's a good option, but I've rarely seen anyone using it.

Here in GODS country. You don't need to post your property. There is an old saying up here "If you don't know, DON'T GO!" It's the individuals responsibility to know where they are and if the property is private or public. Trespassing carries a $700.00 fine.

I have my own methods of handling trespassers. I have painted a vehicle with liquid manure parked in my field, removed a drive shaft and sold it back to them for $500, and scared the bejesus out of a sleeping bow hunter then offered him some toilet paper. This was 3 separate incidents and the word got out not to even ask me permission and don't enter.

I think the paint looks terrible sprayed here and there. I prefer a nicely placed no trespassing sign's, but I also understand why they passed this law.

Here in Virginia we can use paint also.  Below is how the law is written.


•Using a paint mark of aluminum color paint consisting of a vertical line at least 2 inches in width and at least 8 inches in length, no less than 3 feet and not more than 6 feet from the ground or normal water surface and visible when approaching the property.

•Signs that specifically prohibit hunting, fishing, or trespassing on the property.

Here is the law in Md.
You can use no trespassing signs or:
Maryland law also allows property owners to use bright blue oil base paint on trees to mark property boundaries. The paint mark must be a vertical mark at least 2 inches wide and at least 8 inches in length. The mark must be at least 3 feet from the ground but no more than 6 feet high. An observer should be able to see marks to his left and right when standing between marked trees.

Arkansas has been using purple paint for over a dozen years.  It's a shame you have to post your own property.  I caught some kids trespassing on my land, when confronted they said, "we didn't see a no trespassing sign".  Evidently they didn't get the hint when they had to cross a 9 strand barbed wire fence to enter onto my land.  If you don't own it or have permission stay off!!!

That should have had a good effect on additional trespassers as well as on the ones directly effected

I had someone one time think I was trespassing on my grandpa's brother's land, this was in nebraska and I'm from iowa so I had an out of state plate is where I think the confusion came from. Pretty sure it ended up being my mom's cousin's son that did it but could never confirm it as he did try to chew me out as I was walking down the road after.  anywho, what they did was put a small rock in the valve stem cap of my passenger rear truck tire, lucky for me I had tire sensors and the truck warned me I had a flat before I moved. Didn't realize there was no flat until I took it to the tire shop later the next week.
tank of gas: $50
hunting licence: $190
ammo: $20
getting to spend time with family and hunting buddies: priceless
