Default New Hunting Camp Start Up

I have recently purchased a 100 acre lot with 3 other people and we are going to build a hunting camp on the property. All of us come from other camps where we were members but not owners. All 4 of our names are on the deed and we are equal partners. Does anyone have any simple rules with regards to things like "someone wants out", one of the owners passes away, divorces, etc. We want to put some rules on paper and have all of us sign in agreement. Any help would be great.

Default Camp

I would make the rule that if someones passes away that the other members must pay his heirs 1/4 of what the property is worth in full settlement. Otherwise the heirs might want his share and they may or may not be who you want to be hunting with. Either 1/4 or some agreeded upon amount. Happened to me one time and the heir certainly wasn't who any of us wanted to hunt with, nothing but trouble. Be careful!

most important thing is each owner should name a person they want their share to go to in case of their demise.

Thanks for responding. We here a lot of horror stories and don't want to go down that road. I have been on the internet looking for a good "contract" or "agreement" to use as a template for our camp but haven't come across anything we like yet.

make sure you spell out everything from who and when can hunt how its gonna be split up ,its gets ugly trust me
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
