    Gerald is right, Proof of starvation is when the animal's body tries to devour itself, so it gets at the creamy pink to a red, you have the proof.

    you check the bone marrow in the femur,main back leg bone of the deer & if it is a reddish color and no fattish texture the deer has starved. on healthy deer the bone marrow is white and feels greasey when rubbed between the fingers.

    i think you could find out by finding what kind of nutrients were still in the bones.
