symbology of common boundary

Is there a way to display polygons with an outline but not display the outline on shared boundaries? I have different ownership categories on my WMA's and at times want to show them with only the outside boundary.

Mapping Center Answer:

This sounds sort of like another question we got on Ask a Cartographer.  If you use the dissolve tool (without specifing a field to dissolve on), you can create a feature that encompasses the entire area.  Then you can symbolize that feature's boundary as you like.
