    Abstract

    A statistical program named CompuTOD has been written which calculates the time since death of white-tailed deer. The data used for the regression analysis (n = 378) was obtained from a controlled hunt in 1982. The results obtained compare favorably with previous studies but additionally gives upper and lower confidence limits for the calculated time interval since death.
