1. Post "No Hunting" Signs Properly
North Dakota state law allows only the landowner, tenant or a person authorizes by either to post "no hunting" signs. Such signs must include the owner's name, readable from outside the property and posted conspicuously, no more than 880 yards apart. If there's a fence or wall around the entire property, it's sufficient to post a notice at each gate. It's illegal to take down or damage these signs.

2. Hunters Can Follow the Game
It's legal for hunters to enter posted land to retrieve or pursue game they shot while on land where hunting is permitted. They have to leave their weapons behind, however, and close the gate behind them when they enter or leave, or you can lose your hunting license. Violate a private, posted "No Hunting" plot of land without the owner's permission and you can lose your hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for at least one year.

3. Take Part in the PLOTS
Landowners can sign up with Game and Fish's Private Lands Open to Sportsmen (PLOTS) program, to make their lands available to hunters, trappers and fishermen. It's a habitat conservation program in which landowners can share costs for protecting habitat while providing more places in which to hunt, trap, or fish.

4. Deal With Coyote Problems
You can sign up with the state to arrange for hunters to come onto your land and shoot or trap coyotes, a continual source of vexation for ranchers. The state says coyotes cost ranchers up to $1 million a year in livestock losses and damage, according to NorthernAg.NET. The Coyote Catalog is a joint project of state Game and Fish Department and Department of Agriculture.
