Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Tested the hypothesis that hunters using decoys disproportionately shot ducks in poor condition. Results support the argument that caution must be exercised when using data from hunter-shot waterfowl for management programs based on band- recovery analysis or for any other purpose for which a condition bias could influence the interpretation of those data. -from Authors
