The same people who respect "No Trespassing" signs will also respect the purple paint.

The same people who ignore "No Trespassing" signs will also ignore the purple paint.

Good luck, Tony

I think it's more of a permanence/maintenance issue....some will find the paint more convenient.

We have had cases where people posted property that wasn't their's the day before hunting season apparently so they wouldn't have any competition on opening day. The landowner had to go take the signs down after he found out. What happens now when the same type of people just ride around spray painting areas they want for themselves? Even easier than putting up a sign.

I understand landowner's right to post their property and don't disagree with it, but there is more and more posted land every year. Just one more nail in the coffin of hunting in Pa., IMO.

The way I see it, is those kind of people are no better than poachers. The penalty for something like that should be severe enough that no one would even think of it. As far as posted land having anything to do with the future of hunting, I would have to disagree with you there, there is around 3 million acres of public land to hunt in PA that's one of the things that set us apart from the other 49.

I hope this Purple Paint Law works out, I don't mind posting but I don't know If I like the idea of painting trees especially purple, maybe yellow, flo orange or even flo green but purple?
Not to get off of this subject but I'm sure every one knows that you can tell what part of PA some one is from by the words and phrases that they use. The one phrase I hear that seems to be through out the state is: " cause that's the way we always dun it." The Marine Corps beat that out of me fairly early. Anyway, I hope this Purple Paint Law works out.

I think its because purple is the least color other companies use. For instance, the forestry department use blue, red, and even orange to mark trees for cutting. At least you cant rip down purple paint like you can will yellow posters. It really doesnt matter if its paint, paper, cardboard or metal to mark trees. Trespassers will trespass no matter what. Stiffer penalties might help instead of the slap on the wrist they are given.

Which way is it? The bottom of the paint has to be between 3 and 5 feet or the whole paint mark has to be?I've seen it both ways in press releases and on the internet.

The whole paint mark, which is at least 8 inches high x 1 inch wide, has to be higher than 3 feet (the bottom) and lower than 5 feet (the top) from the ground. Paint in between 3 feet and 5 feet from the ground.
