For nonlinear modelling and simulation, it is also worth looking at proc model (SAS/ETS) and the Nonlinear Programming Solver of proc optmodel (SAS/OR).

Thank you for the suggestion PGStats. The MODEL procedure may be simpler
than NLIN. However, given the large number of models I run and the
complexity of the models, writing the code is still labor intensive. I was
imagining a procedure with an ease of use similar to GLMMIX or GENMOD.

SAS does not have procedures dedicated specifically to analysis of capture-recapture data.  However, existing procedures may be useful.  For example, log-linear models can be used with such data for the problem of finite population size estimation.  Such models can be fit as poisson regression models using PROC GENMOD.  Examples of using PROC GENMOD for fitting such models with this sort of data are given in the book "Advanced Log-Linear Models Using SAS" (Zelterman, D., SAS Institute, 2002).  You can order this book from SAS web site,
