What are South Carolina's Trespassing Laws? How can a landowner protect themselves from aggressive hunter trespassing"?

Question Details:

We live in the country on approx. 300 acres of land - during the hunting season we are hunters are constantly driving onto our property, via our driveways or just crossing ditches to the fire breaks. The reason given is they are "looking for dogs". My question is if we placed no trespassing signs all along our property. Would there be a procedure to follow to ensure the signs mean enforcement of the law (i.e. do we have to wait any period of time before the signs "take effect")? Thanks
