No Hunting Purple

No Hunting Purple

You will wear Orange if you ignore the PURPLE !!! Do you know why in Texas and some other states you see the color No Hunting Purple in odd locations? You may see it on gates, fence post, trees, etc. It is real simple it means NO TRESPASSING !!!

I’m going to start off very simple and say if you see the color No Hunting Purple painted on fence posts, trees, etc turn back while you can. It holds the same weight and the same laws apply as a posted sign reading no trespassing. The state of Texas adopted this law in 1997 after Arkansas started it in 1989.

This helps land owners from replacing the signs that people keep using for target practice or high winds blow away. This also helps notify the public of private land.

One of the big problems is educating the public on this subject. They need to understand the color purple is more than just a movie when it is found on trees or fences. If you are going to use the No Hunting Purple on your property you need to make sure to do it right. It is required that you make it at least 8 inches long by 1 inch wide and placed between 3 and 5 feet off the ground. It also needs to be visible. The purple markings should be 100 feet apart on forest land and at least every 1,000 feet on other lands.

The idea of purple may not be very manly as it is smart. The reason they decided on the color purple is because most color blind people can see the color purple. There are several states that use paint as no trespass markings, but not all are the color purple.

In conclusion it is real simple. I will be buying me some No Hunting Purple paint in a rattle can. I will mark the boundaries of my property and other areas just to be sure it is noticed. Remember it is the same as a No Trespassing sign and holds the same weight and laws as the sign does.

How Much UTV do you need?

How Much UTV do you need?

We tried to decide for a long time on our small farm what would we get? We had a four wheeler atv. The carb would gum up every time we turned around and that was so annoying. One day a guy said I’ll trade you my golf cart with new batteries and charger for your 4 wheeler. We spent $2,000 buying the atv. When we couldn’t fix the carb it was always a shop bill. I thought rather than a UTV we could have a golf cart. Sure why not. It has been love ever since. We used this electric golf cart more in 3 months than we did that four wheeler in 3 years.

We have flat mistreated it. It really needs some TLC now. The right rear passenger spring has actually started to reverse arc from the weight and abuse we put this thing through. Almost all the bushings are gone. Only thing we ever did to it was break off the roof, replace an occasional corroded wire, and charge it. We did add a $18 digital volt meter and $12 LED lights that I have had on for hours. They didn’t even make the digital meter move. We will be buying more of these LEDs soon. I will put links at the bottom.
I will say it cost us about $2,000. Still way cheaper than one of those $15,000 dollar new UTVs that I really want. Or even a good used one at $6,000+. We have had this thing in ditches, mud, water over the floor board, etc. Never stops. When it is time to replace it and that time is coming sooner than later I really think we will get another, but maybe with a lift kit.
