Have You Ever Seen A Fence Post Painted Purple?

On our favorite country road I spotted four fence post in a row painted purple. Actually they were painted about a foot from the top. I knew this had a meaning but for the life of me I couldn't think what that meaning was. I thought it was a warning of some kind but not sure. I thought John had told me about this so I ask him. He drew a blank, didn't know a thing. I thought of asking on Facebook but didn't. A light bulb hit me. You can find anything on the internet. Sure enough it is there. In Texas it is a warning to keep out, especially No Hunting. Isn't that odd? Why Purple? Wonder how many hunters know that, did you?

No I certainly didn't know it. BUT purple is 'royalty' or Heavenly, maybe it is an indication that if you trespass you might meet St. Peter sooner than you expect.

Sorta like Shirl told me, While driving: Pray to Jesus, Text if you want to meet him. LOL

It would definitely be noticeable. I would think twice before I trespassed.

I've never seen a purple painted fence post and would not understand this warning.

Yep, it's like a no trespassing...a warning and in Texas you abide by the 'law' no matter if painted purple or posted.

It must be a new thing in the last few years. I'm a born and bred south Texan and lived and born in the country. Never saw a purple fence post. Hunted west of San Antonio with my husband on his grandmother's ranch, never saw a purple fence post.
