Its election season and people are excited to show support for their presidential candidates.

One man has encountered his share of challenges in his effort to show his support for Donald Trump.

Chuck Corry has made it a habit to post signs on his property but, but none have caused such a stir as his Trump/Pence sign.

Corry's frustrated because he's had to put up five signs over the last three weeks in his front yard.

Now, he's taken extreme measures to try and keep it intact.

The retired Oceanographer added fence posts and put a spike board down. In case someone tries to run it over, they'll sputter away with flat tires.

"I've been doing this for 16 years and I've had an occasional sign stolen. I've never had these kind of problems," Corry said.

He's built in even more additional with plumbers tape, glue, a steal cable, a dog leash anchors and skunk spray.

Corry swears the skunk spray has been a deterrent. His sign has stood for a solid week.

He's also sprayed WD-40 on it too in case someone tries to paint over it.

Corry says he's invested about $60 and 6 man hours and he thinks it's paid off.

"I'm a stubborn old man and a former Marine," Corry added. "You want to play games? Okay, I'm good at playing games."

This is not an isolated incident. It's happened across the nation. KXRM reports that a man in Lexington, Kentucky has chained his Trump sign to the ground to avoid theft. Another man boobie-trapped his sign with electrical fence wire.

A Houston family has taped their Trump sign to the top of their 7 foot tall basketball hoop to avoid theft.
