This table contains the deer mortality data used to build the general additive models (GAM) for the systematic search data in Gehr et al. 2017 (Ecology and Evolution) showing hunting induced predator facilitation in lynx. Column “count” refers to the number of kills found per Julian day (column “Julian”) during systematic cluster searches between 2011-2015. 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 “n_lynx” refers to the number of lynx monitored for the systematic cluster searches per month. The column “rm_weighted” refers to the ratio between rm and n_lynx and was used to correct for temporal variation in lynx prey remain monitoring, and hence for the variation in detection probability. 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).
