The Purple Paint Law
I have learned something new today! The purple paint law has been in force for many years in Missouri. I think this is an awesome idea and I am glad to hear other states are adapting at least a portion of it. Check out if your state enforces this law.
Now in Missouri a purple square on a tree means more than no hunting. It is an indicator of private property and serves notice that trespassers can be prosecuted. It’s a whole lot harder to say it wasn’t posted and the sign removed when it is on a fence or a tree and not easily torn down by pranksters or those who don’t want to abide by the law securing your personal property.
As long as you have followed the laws regarding where, size, and color of the paint it is much wiser to use than a sign for homesteaders and preppers who want to keep the unwanted visitor off and away from their property. Read more about the law:
