I used to make the reflective markers out of the 2" tape , cut in half lengthwise , then cut into 1/2" strips . The end result was hundreds of 1/2"x1" strips that I used tacks to attach to trees .
Now I don't bother ,and use Bright Eyes that I buy on sale at Walmart and the end of the season . \:D
As for keeping others off the trail , I might put a marker on the oppostire side of a road ,along with a few decoy tacks to lead them away from my stand .
I never put any tacks close to a road , and limit the useage in open areas . I also mark my tree with two tacks . I have never had a person find my trees I marked that I know of .

Good idea- when you put the tape on the clothespins do you put it on both sides? That way you they'd be visible from either side, which is a big drawback in using tacks. Did I miss that in the initial suggestion?
Thanks.

CZ, yes, I put tape on both sides.
