This table contains the deer mortality data used to build the general additive models (GAM) for the public reporting data in Gehr et al. 2017 (Ecology and Evolution) showing hunting induced predator facilitation in lynx. Column “count” refers to the number of kills reported per Julian day (column “Julian”) for the years 1990-2010. The column “rm” refers to the moving average (rolling mean) of counts over a window size of 31 days (i.e. one month). The column “ratio_raw” refers to the ratio between the moving average of reported lynx kills (“rm” in this table) and the moving average of reported natural mortalities (“rm” in the table “mortality_publicReporting_natural.txt”) used to account for reporting bias in the public reporting dataset. For the all data model all data was used whereas for the no hunting model the data for the hunting season was excluded (Julian days 244-319).
