If the land is not posted, can I still be cited for trespassing?

Answer

State code includes several laws on trespassing with different requirements for different situations, but most require permission to enter another person's land to hunt, fish, trap or retrieve game if it is cultivated, fenced or posted with signs or orange paint. Unposted fenced land may be open to hunting and fishing access. But posting is not required if the landowner or agent asks the person to leave. (There is, however, a penalty for falsely claiming public land as private.)
