Posting and Trespass



  • Only the owner or tenant, or an individual authorized by the owner, may post land by placing signs giving notice that no hunting is permitted on the land. The name of the person posting the land must appear on each sign in legible characters. The signs must be readable from the outside of the land and must be placed conspicuously not more than 880 yards (one-half mile) apart. As to land entirely enclosed by a fence or other enclosure, posting of signs at or on all gates through the fence or enclosure constitutes a posting of all the enclosed land.
     

These are really just guidelines as far as i can tell. If theres 1 sign on a random approach in a section, thats 8 years old and half torn off, its still posted. Owner calls GW and you will be screwed. Ive seen it happen. Its bs i agree, but the way it is.
I agree with you on this.   I would still assume it is posted and would make arrangements to find land owner.   Or just move on.

How about in the asparagus, morel  or shed  scenarios … does the sign have to specifically stated "No Trespassing” if it is just a “No Hunting” sign can you venture out and about on the property?

 Partner lost his hunting rights for 2 years because of this. Field was not posted correctly, 1 old dilapidated posted sign on 1 corner of the field. Decided he was good to go. Landowner came out to the field and got buddies license plate number and called game warden. It eventually went to court, buddy went back to take pics of the old posted sign and all other non-posted corners and approaches, and wouldnt you know it! Everything had brand new posted signs on every corner and approach less than a week later! total bs.

I have plat books for the counties I hunt the most in. Well worth the money. I agree posted signs should be signed and legible as the proclamation states, but if it is taken to court, signed or not signed, you will not win. It is just best to find out who owns the land and get permission.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed

Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife you hunt and for the forest and fields in which you walk.  Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person. -Fred Bear-

I would think if it is Posted with what ever language on it i would get permission.   Man just think if the landowner didn't even know he had asparagus on his property and you got permission and gave him some after you were done!  

I helped a guy change a tire about a month ago out by Mckenzie and you know what i have permission to hunt on his land!   Before i go out there each time i will make sure i call him (everytime)   Just FYI he had a pistol on his seat as he stated he hates people that tresspass on his land!!

I would think i would have pointed this out to the warden right then and there.  How did he and (thus the warden) not take notice of this the day he was hunting on it?

Warden never went out there while my buddy was hunting. He got a phone call from GW and letter in the mail a few days later.

 On no hunting signs all you need is your name not a date,on trespass signs you do not need a date or name  So if the sign  is a no hunting or trespassing  and has no name on it you can still get nailed for trespassing. the posting regs are in your ND hunting guide under posting and trespass

You all are misunstanding the law in some way.  Obviously you could be given a ticket for anything but wardens are law enforcement officers and are supposed to enforce the laws, not make up laws!!!!  If I was given trespass ticket and the land was not posted properly I would feel comfortable that a judge would dismiss it if it was obvious that the posting did not comply with the Century Code requirements.  I have a close relationship with a ND District judge and he and I have discussed this at length and he agrees with my comments and that the posting person also has the responsibility to comply with the law if they don't want people on their land.

This has been discussed numerous times here, my favorite is the thread that cites the law, has a lawyer comment and humorous comments the administrator.  Here's the link.

Any indication that the landowner does not want you on the property and you can be charged with trespass, not under game and fish regulations, just regular trespass.  I think you get tried under civil code

WormWiggler,

Not correct, go to the link and read it both of the laws are posted there.  Your comment is something that I think a majority of hunters believe is true, however the criminal tresspass and the hunting tresspass laws are almost word-for-word the same.  The only difference is the frequency of the postings:

Hunting Tresspass - requires the signs to be every 880 yds or at all gates if enclosed by a fence.
Criminal Tresspass - requires the signs to be posted in a manner reasonably likely to come to the attention of intruders.

Both have to have a name also

Not always true, we've had incidents where we have turned people in and nothing happened because it wasn't signed and dated. Shouldn't even need to post land as in most states it's automatically no hunting or trespassing without the owners consent. Seems fair to me.

We are not "most states". It is a good thing.

This is what i don't understand about this site.   A person asked a simple question about where to get Aluminum signs and it turns into a Chitshow.    A guy asks about a net and get a 6.99 pink net posted on it!
