Hello Corrie,

first of all, no worries: there's no dumb question about homerange
estimation ;)

about the error:
- from a theoretical point of view, the 100% isopleth of the kernel is
not finite, because the area where you have 100% of probability to
encounter an animal is actually the whole world.
- from a programming point of view, the isopleth goes far beyond the
grid limits and therefore the "subscript out of bounds" error is raised.
Maybe it will be useful that the code raise a warning when attempting
the extraction of 100% kernel isopleth, instead of the generic error
that raises also with lower isopleths that are partially outside the
grid boundaries.

hope this helps,
