All available deer survey, distribution and movement data have been collected from statewide and regional FWP offices. All deer survey data was recently synthesized into a single database while deer distribution and movement data are currently being intersected with covariates such as temperature, precipitation, land cover, NDVI, elevation and distance to road using ArcGIS Desktop 10. Data extraction of deer distribution and movement data were completed in April 2012.
