I've been given some data to analyse on deer movements. I have data for the movements of 10 deer over a year period. There are 35 GPS locations per dear for each season (4 seasons).

I would like to look at whether habitat use of the deer changed between seasons but I'm unsure how to do this. I initially thought I could conduct Kernel Density Estimates for each season and then look at the proportions of total observations in each habitat type but I'm unsure if this is correct? I also don't know how to quantify the number of observations in each habitat type (although I imagine this shouldn't be too hard to do). Also, I am looking at this at a population level as it would take a long time to do every individual for all 4 seasons

Anyone have any advice on the best way to look at seasonal changes in habitat use?
