    A controversial recreation activity is off-highway vehicle use. Off-highway vehicle use is controversial because it is incompatible with most other activities and is extremely hard on natural eco-systems. This study estimates utility theoretic incomplete demand systems for four off-highway vehicle sites. Since two sets of restrictions are equally consistent with utility theory both are imposed and the best fitting restrictions are identified using Voung's nonnested testing scheme. The demand system is modeled using both Poisson and negative binomial 11 distributions. Data are provided by a survey conducted at four recreational offhighway vehicle (OHV) sites in western North Carolina.
