Are you new to Montana? Thinking of moving to the Treasure State? There are some things to keep in mind because ticking off a Montanan is not a smart thing to do.

    Tell us how great it was where you lived.

    No one wants to hear about how great you had it. If it was so great then why did you move? Saying things like that to the right person can actually get you a first class ticket back home.

    Come here and try changing things.

    We as Montanans have a way of doing things. We're proud of this state and don't tolerate people telling us what to do or how to do it.

    Trash the land.

    We value our land. Montana is a beautiful state. We don't take kindly to anyone destroying what we have so please pick up after yourself.

    Disrespect our family.

    Ever hear the term "Mess with the bull and you'll get the horn?" That's what happens when someone tries to mess with one of our family members.

    Disrespect the American Flag or a Veteran.

    We have a high respect for our Veterans and the American Flag. Disrespecting either is like calling us out to a fight. It won't end pretty.
