Marking My Territory

This is one of those really obvious laws. It's ridiculous that they even have to put it in writing. From the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's Criminal Penalties and General Law page (the bolding is their's):

"Under the Texas Penal Code (§30.05) it is an offense for any person to enter property that is fenced, posted with a sign(s), or marked (purple paint) without the express permission of the owner. Posts or trees bearing purple paint marking of not less than eight inches in length and not less than one inch in width at not less than three or more than five feet from the ground constitute notice that the property is posted."

I think it's time to go get some purple paint.
