According to the map on page 74 of this year’s hunting regulations book, Walker is in area 20A.
The same book calls out the dates for our area on page 39, where it says that hunter are subject to note 42.
Note 42 defines a large area, that Walker is inside of, where hunting is prohibited within a quarter mile of a residence.
It doesn’t look to me like you even need to put up signs for it to be prohibited. Of course, I’m not a lawyer.
From a practical point of view, it doesn’t hurt to put up “no hunting” signs or “private property” signs. They are available at most hardware stores.
Note 42 is on page 42.
