Default DBL BDD in TN

Awesome, awesome hunt today. After missing two with the longbow this morning, I figured I'd take my Drenalin and get even. I let my daughter sit on my ladder stand 40 yards from my climber to watch, and she got a show. At 5:30 pm, I had 9 deer staged just out of my shooting lane. At 6:00 they started crossing my lane. At 6:05, the doe I'd targeted as the one I wanted crossed at 25 yards. I drew, stopped her and drilled her with a double lung shot. I watched her run 50 yards and pile up. Fifteen minutes into my wait,I spot three more coming towards me, and one of them is a BIG momma doe. As they milled around, working their way towards the same spot, I debated on whether I wanted to have to field dress and take care of two tonight. If she didn't speed up, I wasn't going to bother since it was getting late. Then she stopped in a little opening that I'd alread ranged at 25 yards. I thought, okay, it's Saturday night and I drew and drilled her with a double lung shot also. She didn't make it past 60 yards. I didn't see her fall, but I knew from the hit she was done. Since this was the stand I can walk to from the house in 5 minutes, I had the entire family helping me with the blood trail on the second one. What an awesome day![8D]

Sorry for the bad pic, but it's the best I could do given the time constraints!

Of course I am, but I'm glad I didn't take it out again this evening. Every deer that crossed my lane did so at 20-25 yards, and at this point, my max range with the longbowis 15 yards. I WILL get a deer with the longbow this year, though.
