What is your opinion on posting hunting property? Place signs on trees or posts? I know you can't stop scumbags if they are intent on trespassing, but any good tips will be appreciated.

I like putting signs on T-Posts to make it look more formal and "current". They just don't show up as well on trees. Signs on the posts give it more of a military base look and at least imply that the owner/owners are more active on the property. That's my take on it at least.

Paint the trees and put cheap posted signs out by any atv trails or entrances. I buy a cheap roll of 100 or so and refresh them as needed.

Cheap signs and a stapel gun. It won't stop them but it might slow them down.

I used to do the cheap Tyvek signs and staple gun routine. However, after years and years of having to replace the signs due to weather wear and people tearing them down, I've recently started investing in long-life aluminum signs. I'm really glad I did. They are more expensive (about $0.90 a piece), but they stay bright and last forever. Plus they are very difficult to tear down. And when you look at the cost, the Tyvek/paper signs cost around $0.30 per sign and need replacing either every year or every other year, and figuring in the time/labor of replacing them constantly, I'm coming out much better at three times the initial cost but virtually never having to replace them. I carry a section of ladder stand with me for nailing them up so they are out of reach from anyone on the ground. I also use aluminum nails so they won't damage a mill saw.

Where do you get those signs? The aluminum ones I priced were more in the $1.50 range.

These are the ones I've been buying (0.012 gauge aluminum):

Thanks for the link, yeah that's really not too bad of an investment. Especially if you spread them out a little, but I still seem to think I read something one time on here or had a friend who talked to a wildlife officer that said something about paint being a "requirement" if you wanted anything to hold up in court, but I'm not 100% sure about that.
