Default Opening day in MD, First Deer ever! Now with Pics.

Well, first year of the season and i'm in my stand at about 5:30PM. Don't see anything but squirrels until about 7:00pm when 4 small deer(20-30lb range) walk about 10-15 yards from my stand and eat, walk around and then turn to leave. They are too small for myself to shoot so I let them walk. While i'm watching them walk away they walk right towards two bigger does about 80lbs a pc. I have about 5 seconds to take the 30 yard shot before they enter the thickets and disappear so I steady the crossbow and shoot with the deer quartering away. Enter just before the last rib and exited right behind the other shoulder.

We waited 30 minutes and took up the track at dark. took a bit to find blood but we found drops for about 50 yards(Bled very very little). We finally walk right up on her laying there. Best sight i've ever seen I was shaking and smiling it was incredible.

So my friends father showed me the ropes on how to gut it and such and we hauled it out to the truck. Deer ran about 50 yards after i hit it with the NAP Hellrazor crossbow broadhead. Shot was a through and through at 30 yards never did find the arrow. Entrance and exit wounds werent huge but it did the job. I must have nicked the stomach because the guts were inside its belly but i also hit a lung hence the 50 yards before she piled up.

Sorry for the long read. Here are some pics(wont let me upload ill try later)

here we go, instead of the window telling me the pic was too large, it timed out. So here are the pics resized, i put my buddies bow case there as a size reference, my crossbow was still in the truck since we took the deer to his place.
