X-Radiation Technique For Wildlife Investigations

The Tennessee Game and Fish Commission has successfully utilized radiology for the following purposes: (I) determining the effects of hunting season closure on geese (Gore and Barstow 1969), (2) predicting annual productivity of deer (Lewis 1962, Whitehead 1966), and (3) determining lead shot ingestion in doves (Lewis and Legler 1968). Because of this experience'3nd the results of others, we feel that radiology has significant potential for use in wildlife research. This paper briefly presents our use of x-ray equipment and film processing. A detailed paper can be obtained from the senior author.
