  12. I would suggest deciding what kind of model you want to use before deciding which software to implement it with. You have distance data, so you could use distance sampling. But you also have repeated surveys within a season, so you might consider an N-mixture model. With your time intervals you could use a removal model. And there are ways to combine those data, for example by using a time-removal plus distance sampling model. Part of your choice should be based on your main question. If you need a density estimate for an area, you probably want a distance sampling model of some sort. If you a
