Posting Your Land Against Hunting
Natural Resources and Energy Development
Landowners may post their property to restrict or prohibit hunting, shooting, snaring or trapping within the posted area. Landowners must use either printed word signs, or 25-centimetre colored circular disks, or painted 25-centimetre-wide bands. These are available from Flexiway Products and not the Province of New Brunswick, although we do provide the contact information below.
Landowners must use either printed word signs or 25-centimetre colored circular disks or painted 25-centimetre-wide bands around trees. Signs, disks or bands must be placed at each corner and access point and at intervals not to exceed 100 meters along the entire boundary of the posted area.
Yellow disks or yellow painted bands allow hunting, shooting, trapping or snaring by permission only. Yellow disks need to be registered annually with your local department office as per Section 80(5) of the Fish and Wildlife Act.
Red disks or red painted bands mean no hunting, shooting, trapping or snaring by anyone including the owner.
Other facts: Landowners posting land with printed word signs will specify ‘No shooting’, ‘No hunting’, ‘No trapping’, ‘No snaring’ or any combination thereof and whether such activity is prohibited or by permission only. It is illegal to tear down, remove, damage, deface or cover up a sign, disk or band that has been posted.
The New Brunswick Maple Sugar Producers are no longer selling the discs . Flexiway Products is now the sole provider of land posting discs in the Province at:
