A Hedonic Analysis Of Private Hunting Land Attributes Using An Alternative Functional Form


  • Messonnier, Mark L.
  • Luzar, E. Jane


A hedonic framework is used to analyze selected attributes of Louisiana deer hunting leases that are hypothesized to be significant contributors to lease value. The flexible Box-Cox functional form is used in contrast to the often utilized linear regression specification. Additionally, the hypothesis of regional differences in slope coefficients of lease attributes is addressed. Results indicate that hunters in the two analyzed regions value lease attributes and services differently.
