The population growth depends basically on the quality of parents (genotype) and the environmental influences. The quality of parents in the case of wild animals, especially in the case of doe, is characterized by the most important biological features like age, body weight and body condition. The condition of doe represents the quality of the habitat, which may indirectly affect the population growth. At large wild ruminant species the reproductive success mainly depends on the body weight and the stored body fat. On the other hand roe deer does not store significant amount of fat in order to maximize its reproductive success (ANDERSEN et al., 2000). In this respect the body weight of doe, the quantity and quality of available feed is dominant, which establishes the reproductive performance of individuals. The average kidney fat index of roe deer shot in Nagyszénás is 1,90, in Hódmezővásárhely 1,45. The average body weight of roe deer dropped in Nagyszénás is also higher (20,59 kg) than of roe deer on the territory of Hódmezővásárhely (18,46 kg).
