Coloradans For Responsible Wildlife Management

The Colorado Supreme Court recently denied the appeal on Initiative 91 so the Title will be set as was decided upon in the Title Board process.

Proposed Initiative 2023-2024 #1011

The title as designated and fixed by the Board is as follows:

A change to the Colorado Revised Statutes concerning limits on hunting of mountain lions,

bobcats, and lynx, and, in connection therewith, restricting the hunting or killing of a mountain

lion, bobcat, and, subject to federal law, lynx to between December 18 and December 31;

prohibiting the use of traps, bait, dogs, and electronic devices in the hunting or killing of these

animals; prohibiting trophy hunting of mountain lions, bobcats, and lynx by prohibiting the

keeping or transferring of body parts defined as trophies and requiring the relinquishment of these

body parts to the Colorado division of parks and wildlife; creating exceptions to these hunting

restrictions, including for the protection of human life, livestock, or property; establishing

violations of these restrictions as a felony; and increasing fines and limiting wildlife license

privileges for persons convicted of any of these crimes.

The ballot title and submission clause as designated and fixed by the Board is as follows:

Shall there be a change to the Colorado Revised Statutes concerning limits on hunting of

mountain lions, bobcats, and lynx, and, in connection therewith, restricting the hunting or killing

of a mountain lion, bobcat, and, subject to federal law, lynx to between December 18 and

December 31; prohibiting the use of traps, bait, dogs, and electronic devices in the hunting or
