Abstract

These two tables present raw data utilized to calculated greenhouse gas savings associated with hunting within the US. Appendix I shows the estimated numbers of "big game" animals legally harvested in each state and the mean yield from each species. Appendix II shows total number of migratory waterfowl harvested in the US and the mean yield for each species. Both of these tables refer to the paper "Reported US Wild Game Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Savings" published in Human Dimensions of Wildlife.

Methods

Appendix I was collected from state wildlife management agencies, either directly from internet published data or by email request. Appendix II was collected by internet published data.
