(UNDATED) - Hunters, anglers, trappers and anyone else who enjoys time in the woods will need to be aware of a new law that took effect July 1.

Per Indiana Code (IC 35-43-2-2), landowners may mark no-trespassing areas of their property with purple paint instead of no-trespassing signs.

The purple-paint perimeter serves the same legal purpose as a "No Trespassing" sign. Painting can be done around the perimeter of the area where entry is denied on either trees or posts.

The purple marks must be readily visible to any person approaching the property.

For more information, see IC 35-43-2-2 at
