Montana CI-101, also known as the Collective Ownership of Wildlife Act, did not appear on the November 4, 2008 statewide ballot in Montana as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure proposed adding the following wording to Article IX, Section 7:

"The people of the state of Montana collectively own the wild fish and wild game animals of this state. Accordingly, any law adopted affecting this right shall not conflict with it. Managing the wild fish and wild game animals shall be done in a manner that primarily benefits the people of Montana, and corporate or commercial benefits are secondary to this collective right."

Kurt Kephart was the sponsor of the initiative. It was approved for circulation but was later withdrawn.[1]
