How to assess deer fertility

Deer manager Niall Rowantree is in the larder playing wildlife detective. He’s in the middle of assessing the health of the roe doe he’s just shot. She’s thin, has a low fat score, and he hasn’t seen her with young for 2 years. So was her condition too poor to carry young? By looking at the womb he can find out. Niall does this with every female deer he shoots on the estate so he can establish the health of the herd.
