Default Backstraps down in NY

Shot this small doe walking to my stand about a half mile down the property. Heres the story:

I got out of my stand around 10 in the morning taking a break. I eat lunch and get back out there at 11:30. My dad was going to come down with me with his climber so he can put it in area at the bottom of the property. I asked him to wait 5 minutes behind me so I can walk down slow just in case. I get into the "back field" and look to my right to see some brown. I slowly crawl forward 10 yards to a sapling. I see that it is a doe. I put my gun on a branch, crosshairs right behind the shoulder and pulled the trigger. I see her jump and jog off with her tail up. I go over there and see if I hit her or not. Look for blood and not a single drop. At this point I get dissapointed because I figured I had missed. I looked around for blood for about 10 minutes.. Give up and say "I will look for her tonight". I walk to my stand, climb up to the top peg and look down to the right. Sure enough, there she is 30 yards away down! I walk over to find that she is a very small doe, about 75 pounds. No big deal though, I'm still pumped! I shot her with a 35 Remington with a Redfield 3X9 scope at about 90 yards. Perfect shot, could not get any better right behind the shoulder, tore her heart in half. This is my 3rd deer ever.. First with gun!
