RMS GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY
Preamble
RMS wants your club to have a safe and enjoyable time while using the lands we manage. We also expect you to promote the forest stewardship objectives of our company, conduct your activities in a safe and responsible manner, and maintain good relations with neighboring landowners. RMS has developed a "Good Neighbor Code of Ethics" for all that wish to hunt, fish or otherwise recreation on RMS managed lands.
 
Good Neighbor Code of Ethics
Safety is the highest priority for all activities.  Each member and guest is expected to act in a safe manner at all times and is encouraged to complete training in hunter safety.

Demonstrate your respect for the property rights of others. Make an effort to meet neighboring landowners and develop good relationships. Promptly address and resolve concerns with neighbors and others in the community. Always obtain permission before going onto a neighbors property. The privilege of using RMS managed lands ends at the property lines.
 
The Chairman/President of each club is expected to act as your representative in issues that may arise with your neighbors, in communicating issues or concerns to RMS. To improve local communication, provide your neighbors with the name and phone number of your club chairman.
 
 
You are an ambassador for the future of hunting. Always consider how others will view your activities. Do not hunt, display, or discharge firearms in a careless manner or in close proximity to any occupied residence, residental area, school, church or place of business. Never hunt or erect stands within 150 FEET of any public right of way or neighboring property. Never discharge a firearm from or across any public right of way.
 
All hunting and fishing activities should be conducted in an ethical manner. Hunters are the minority in an increasingly urban society comprised mostly of nonhunters. Avoid public displays of harvested game. Dispose of carcasses in a responsible manner.
 
Keep your campsite and lands licensed free from garbage and litter. And in compliance with company requirements, and local and state and federal regulations. Promptly remove and properly dispose of abandoned camps, appliances, abandoned stands and other refuse. Dumping or littering is expressly prohibited. You should periodically inspect and remove all trash and litter you find.
 
Alcohol and hunting do not mix. Hunting and fishing while under the influence of alcohol or drugs of any kind is a violation of your license and will result in forfeiture of that privilege.
 
Develop and maintain a good relationship with local conservation and law enforcement officers. Know who to contact and what steps to take in case of a medical or other emergency.Prepare for an emergency before it happens.
 
Recreation on RMS managed land is a privilege. All members and guest are expected to conduct their activities accordingly.
