"Two analyses were used to relate population levels of white tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) to habitat characteristics. Both analyses were based on multiple linear regression. Deer populations were indexed by county specific adult male harvest statistics. Estimates of the availability of forest types in each of the 14 Adirondack counties were obtained from the U.S. Forest Service Forest Surveys completed in 1967 and 1978."
