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.

    • Apparently it took one to know one
    • Well, yes and no.  When the distillery opened they hired Steve Nally of Makers Mark fame and all of the ingredients come from the local area.  The facility is cool, the bottle and label are cool... it had everything going for it.  But for some reason the partners decided on releasing it earlier than planned, and about this time Nally (who the story claims did not agree with this decision) parted ways with them.  Because of promotion there was a lot of interest and advanced sales and some dealers were limited to a case or two.  But it really bombed hard, and some batches (the bottles show batch numbers) were way worse than others. It didn't turn out like they planned it would and after a while most of the sales were to tourists. On the bright side, after a few years WW admitted they had a problem and began blending batches (and likely made other changes as well), and even had representatives travel the state giving free samples of the "new" WW.  It has improved slightly, but many folks still have the bad taste in their mouth.  A dealer I know told me the liquor commission in Cheyenne (all sales go through them) has something like 500 cases in the warehouse and it's a slow mover.      I actually ordered a case so I could give it out to customers, as luck would have it the bar I ordered through only got 2 cases on that first order, so all of the pre-order people just got a couple of bottles, and they kept a few back for stocking the bar.  For a couple of days patrons were sampling it at the bar and it began to get the thumbs down. I actually cancelled my order for the remaining case.  I did make it halfway through one bottle, but wound up tossing the rest.  I kept the unopened one just because it might be worth something in 20 or 30 years.   Yep nice color alright. The flavor is slightly sweet with a hint of oak, vanilla and kerosene, and it has a burn.  The first glass is sort of deceiving and after the second the flavor becomes unpleasant.  Most believe it's just too young and needed the full aging.

    • Come on Duff, you gotta know it was just picking one liar over the other. The difference being that there is a small chance his lies were not generated by the machine.  In the end it doesn't matter what he says but what he can get others to do.    I gave Barry a chance to do the job and I extend the same to Donald. My guess though is that what he will bring will not be what his voters are looking for but at times we need to go through that to get to where we want to be.   In the meantime maybe tanning booths will make a comeback
    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
    • And yet?   Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 21 A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!
