Looking for a no hunting sign
Somebody (maybe Charlie) turned me on to no hunting signs a number of years ago that I really like. They were plastic and rather than anything being printed on them, they had the "No Hunting" lettering cut out of the sign. Can someone direct me to a website for those signs? Thanks!
Does that mean I can't hunt your place?
Based on what I'm seeing this year, you don't want to! No crops to hold deer in our family's woods this year, so they're all on the other side of the river, as far as I can tell. Still want to keep the poachers out though...
Its called the forever sign
Do poachers obey no hunting signs?
Thanks Jethro, but that's not the one I'm looking for.
Keith, sometimes. I get a few pics of trespassers every year. Since I made a big fuss and raised all kinds of hell one year people have mostly stayed out of our land. The word on the street is that I'm a total jacka$$ and will press charges on poachers. The word is right.
IMO nothing works better than these custom aluminum signs that I post on my borders at 8’ up and screwed in with galvanized lag screws.
The sign shows you mean business and they look as good now as they did ten years ago when I installed them.
Yes, they are pricey at $15 each but they work and they never fade or rip off the tree. I just posted 40 of them at my Ohio property.
It’s important to post your name and phone. I’ve had hunters call me from the field to track a deer, had a warden call me to follow up on a complaint against my neighbor, power line crews, etc.

Are these the ones you’re looking for, scoot? If so, I’d highly recommend NOT mounting them on plywood backing. The damn squirrels will eat them up. Otherwise, I really like them.
What are the ones that are a "sleeve" that slides over a steel fence post
I use the ones T Roy uses. They work and last.
Does that mean I can now text you Pat? You had to file a complaint against your neighbor already?
Idyll I double dog dare you! ;)
Funny story yesterday went out to Eastern CO to talk to landowners about pheasant hunting and see if could pick up few more places to hunt. Anyways pulled up to this old farmer stand beside his truck on the bar ditch side of road. Say hi and get around to asking about hunting. He holds up his hand from other side of truck and he is holding a no hunting sign and drill that he is about to hang. He was a good guy and chatted with him for a few minutes but saved hunting for his son and his buddies to hunt.
So if it says no hunting does that not include the owner? For any purpose is forbidden, that would include the landowner correct?

Pat, where do you buy those signs?
"Idyll I double dog dare you!"
John, I'm dumb enough to say it, but smart enough not to do it!
Scoot.........I had to do the same thing as you. Raise hell to get your point across. I gave my neighbors the benefit of the doubt and time to prove that they were not inconsiderate but it didn't work. I will give anyone permission to track a deer onto my property but when I catch you an hour after daylight and I don't know your coming and it has happened before.........well bad things are going to happen.
I got so pissed one time at the neighbors for doing this that one of them told my dad I was frothing at the mouth when I was yelling at them. Must have worked cause that was the last time I have had this issue with them.
'John, I'm dumb enough to say it, but smart enough not to do it!'
True that Iddy! haha
Thanks everybody, I appreciate the replies. T, that is what I was looking for! About every 5 years I'm looking for them and can never relocate that dang website!
“ So if it says no hunting does that not include the owner? For any purpose is forbidden, that would include the landowner correct?”
Not if your reading comprehension skills extend to standard English language.
The hell of it though…
We all generally agree that it’s a shame that it’s getting to be so difficult to find permission to hunt on private property, but I’ve never heard of anyone buying or leasing a parcel of land to hunt and then NOT posting it or otherwise ensuring that it stays off-limits to the public.
And around here, it’s pretty much standard procedure for people to expect to have an exclusive arrangement on private property when they do get access to it.
So it just keeps getting harder all the time…
I'm fairly new to owning my own hunting ground and I had decided at first that I wouldn't post it. That lasted about 2 weeks. I had a couple of hunters that used to hunt the ground that seemed to think that they still could even after I made it clear that they could not. If I ever catch them in the act I'm charging them with trespassing. I've got a camera at the entrace, which is a quarter mile off of a tiny country road, and I get pictures routinely of vehicles that pull in there. Most just turn around and head back out. Bottom line is that some people won't respect no trespassing signs.
I do like Pat's signs that state that he has cellular trail cams in use. I'm thinking about spending some money on cellular cameras, particularly for trespasser surveillance.
its nice to have Pat's phone # though.
Whoa,, hold on.. who said midget porn ??...i may be interested.... jk. Not really.....
We have a fence sitter pop up blind at my farm. We’ve had problems with them before. We are putting the following signs right outside their window “Don’t even think about it. You are on camera and will be prosecuted.”
