Posting land

11 posts in this topic

My dad told a buddy that I'd take care of getting his land posted this year so he can take his grandson out and hunt without being interupted. Besides being sure that the no hunting signs are signed by the landowner and dated, what do I need to know to be sure that the land is posted correctly?

I would make sure you have plenty of signs out and they are visable everywhere. We posted a ton of signs last year some jerk-baits tore a few down, then if you catch people out there they cant be like i didnt see them if you have plenty

No doubt mrklean, for me it's about the safety of my nephews and such because I have many property line hunters that do shoot into my land especially on evening deer hunts figuring once dark, then we'll go recover the deer, when confronted it's the well we shot it, it jumped your fence and we were just recovering it, yea right.

I would put the signs up with a ladder, like 10' off the ground. That way people can't just go up to them ripe them down. Make sure no branches are in the way too, if they are in the woods.

I know you have to have signs at the corners or property line and at all access points. Other than that I would put up as many as you can because like some others pointed out, people seem to like to tear them down.

The more rigid yellow plastic signs seem to only last a year in the sun and cold. I picked up a few metal ones for the in laws and they seem to be the best. For the money, the yellow signs that come in the roll hold up decent as long as you put some tape on them keep the fasteners from pulling out. They work well to wrap on trees and if they get destroyed you're not out much.

There is a description of posting regs in the hunting and fishing book hand-outs. Check the regs...they are also posted on the DNR HSOforum.

Yes, definitely check the regulations on this. I believe if you post "no hunting" signs on your own property, then not even you can hunt there. "no trespassing" signs is what you really need. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

It is NOT illegal to hunt your own property even if its posted no hunting.

Scoot, since you're in ND I would check your state regs about posting. MN has laws about posting woods vs ag land as well as the distances needed on signs in woods vs the open.

More signs is always better, but remember if you put up more than required, than each sign has to comply with the regs even if its more than necessary....meaning if you decide to add an extra sign in between the required ones, it still needs all the info on it.

I know a guy who added extra signs but didn't want to take the time to write his info on those and it became an issue for him when someone trespassed and said the signs weren't legal. A technicality yes, but it gets losers like that out of trouble.

    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
    • The curved blades may very well be the "Jet" part that made it different from their other hand augers?
    • It's always nice to have fresh homemade pickles in the winter. Jalapeno peppers will be next.
    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like what I had heard from the guy I met at upper red who was from the area. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
