    Description

    The intent of this study of Virginia hunters/nonhunters was to test the efficacy of panel research for assessing the temporal stability of hunting participation and constraints. Findings suggest that participation/nonparticipation patterns were stable across time periods for the population, yet dynamic at the individual level. Although the structure of perceived constraints appeared stable, the intensity varied significantly over time and distinguished among participation groups. Given that most constraint research is psychologically grounded, it appears more efficacious to employ research designs that allow individual-level analyses.
