Conroy, M.J., B.K. Williams, and J.E. Hines. 1995. Use of solicited bands and separation of hunting and natural mortality: a comment. Journal of Wildlife Management 59:619-621.

Abstract

We previously presented (Conroy 1985, Conroy et al. 1989) models for analysis of band recovery data stratified into those voluntarily reported and those obtained by solicitation, similar to models described by Pollock et al. (1994). We discuss differences between the 2 modeling approaches and suggest designs and analyses involving overlapping samples of standard and reward bands to enable adjustment for temporal and geographic variation in reporting and solicitation rates.We previously presented (Conroy 1985, Conroy et al. 1989) models for analysis of band recovery data stratified into those voluntarily reported and those obtained by solicitation, similar to models described by Pollock et al.
