The law gives landowners to option to use purple paint, rather than signs, to alert hunters that their land is private and for hunters not to trespass.

Landowners can use the purple paint to mark their properties using vertical lines at least 8-inches long and 1-inch wide painted 3-5 feet from the base of the tree.

The markings must also be on various trees that are within 100 feet of each other.
