Default 1st deer ever!

Well last year i wasnt that into deer hunting but after buying a bow after xmas i got realy into bow hunting.This being my first season i made many mistakes but after about 7 hunts without even seeing a deer i was very discouraged.But after school oneday i went out to this new spot and sat for about 10 min and seen a doe run acrossed a field i was sitting next to,i was pumped cuz it was the first deer id even seen.Then about 30 min later i see another doe come outa this thivk stuff and she starts heading riight towards me!...well needless to say i was very nervous.she turned broadside at about 20 yards and i drew back ...i let my arrow fly and she ducked it but she jumped back now she was about 30 yards away i knocked another arrow shot again and just missed (got some hair off her stomach).then she knew somthing was up but i held still and she didnt leave...i hit my fawn bleater twice and she came back in to 15 yards!...well again i drew back and rushed the shot and missed again!!!.............well i was determined after that ....and wensday me my buddy and my step dad went down to the southern tier for a roadtrip...we got there late around 7:30 and we droped my buddy at his spot me and mine and my step dad went to was dead quite for and hour and a half until at 9 i see this spike horn appear outta nowhere ..he was coming fast i pick up my bow and drew back...he got into the clear about 35 yards away(downhill) and i let my arrow fly...i saw the arrow go in and blood start pouring out as he was running away...he ran about 50 yards inbetween me and my step dad and dropped dead i double lungeed him with a rage broadhead(no passtrrough).he may not be the biggest buck in the woods but bow hunting is hard and i am veryyy proud of this deer and its my first one

Hey, nice job! I know I got my first deer this year, and like you I grew discouraged, but "stick-to-ittivness" is a moral well learned again, congrats. But, before I go the blood on the buddies told me that I had to m*&^t the deer....hmmmm, some get off luckier than others! lol.
