View Full Version : Is all land considered posted

Someone is telling me that in Arkansas that all private land is considered posted against trespass whether the owner has actually posted the property with signs, purple paint, or not.

So if you wonder off your own property onto your neighbors while out hunting you can be arrested for trespass.

Is this correct?

They changed the laws a few years ago. You are supposed to have written permission ( on your person ) to be on private property. If you dont have the land leased.
While it is unlikely that you would be arrested for trespass,( the first time caught ) It is possible depending on what you are doing and who the land belongs to.
You can go to and learn more.

If there is no boundary marker i.e. fence, road, signs, paint, etc. Then the first time is merely accident in eyes of agfc. On a side note-- any ethical hunter usually knows what the land is like and where the boundaries are. If not they need to take the time to find out before venturing around much.
