  • Purple Paint Law.

    Has anyone come across a purple fence in searching for land to hunt?

    Been the law here in Missouri for years. Not just fence posts either, trees painted too.

      I think the paint idea is to address the problem of trespassers removing posted signs.

        true, to a lesser extent. A gallon of paint or a half dozen spray cans can cover much more area faster, cheaper, and more thoroughly. Doesn't damage timber with nails either. Fewer gaps mean fewer "I didn't see any signs" excuses as well.

          The link I provided overstates the hazards of hunting in stating that about 1,000 people are shot and killed in hunting accidents each year.

          According to the International Hunter Education Association, in an average year, fewer than 1,000 people in the United States and Canada are accidentally shot by hunters, and of these, fewer than 75 are fatalities. In many cases, these fatalities are self-inflicted by hunters who trip, fall, or have other accidents that cause them to shoot themselves with their own weapons. Most of the other fatalities come in hunting parties, where one hunter shoots another accidentally.

          Recent estimates say there are almost 6,000 hunting accidents to hunters each year involving falls from tree stands—six times as many as are wounded by firearms.

            We just had 2 people killed here in WV Thursday over a hunting lease. To the purple paint, it was just passed as a law in WV 3 years ago, but a lot of people are taking advantage of the paint rather than the cost of posters that can be removed.

              Just passed in our state. Purple paint is all it is and takes away the garbage posted signs.

                We've had a purple paint law in Kansas as long as I can remember, which isn't really all that long compared to other members on the forum.
                Here the basic meaning is: NO TRESPASSING. Hunting, Fishing, and Trapping with written permission only.

                As for the original question, no. I've always hunted our own land or land we sharecrop or rent.

                Under Kansas law, the renter/sharecropper has hunting rights to the property unless otherwise stated in the agreement with the landlord. However, it has been my experience that the majority of landowners are unaware of this, which can lead to a delicate situation if not dealt with tactfully.

                  In Ohio you have to have, on your person, written permission signed by owner to hunt on another persons land. Verbal O.K.'s do not work. Big fine, loss of gear and suspension of hunting if caught.

                          When I started hunting there was State land to hunt and a lot of landowners would let you hunt. Also, a lot of private land was not posted and in those day's you did not need specific permission to hunt the land. Just be responsible on the land and leave it as you found it. I had good success on State Land, about even with private land. I made up business cards with my info, car color and plate and phone #. I also would show up early and help out with chores. Best to get some cow dung on your boots and clothes. Then, the farmer would tell us where he saw the deer hanging out. We always offered the farmer some venison and for the regular places we hunted we would drop off a brown bottle at Christmas time.

                            First time we let someone who offered to work to hunt give it a try they broke the blade off my mower and wailed about a sore back for a week. Didn't stop his turkey hunting though. 3 hrs help I had to supervise every minute of in exchange for the worry of lawsuits and buying a new mower blade. Bad trade Tonto.

                              All things being equal, all things aren't always equal.

                              Kinda like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates. "Ya nevah know wha'cha gonna get!"

                              I bought a brand spanking new Ruger M77 .300 Win Mag for a Colorado elk hunt.
                              Absolutely awesome piece of wood!
                              Kicked like a bay mule and about a 2" group at 100 yards was the best it would do. Either that or I developed a flinch as bad as the San Francisco earthquake!
                              Swapped it even up for a set of "Blue Boy" camper jacks!
