Son Got his first deer!!!!!!!

I know this may not be in the right board but.... My 13 yr old son shot his first deer (ever) --he got a doe with his bow, she weighted 113 lbs.
We had been sitting for around 3 hrs, to no avail, then all of the sudden i noticed movement in front of me about 50yrds out, so i turned and looked bk and told my son to get ready and shoot Big smile ---He told me after his first thought was Oh crap Big smile Big smile --- then she came up out of a small ravine, and headed towards us, my drew and shot, but first shot hit a twig and dropped under belly, My first thought was we are Done--she's gonna bust us and run, well she didnt, Now she keeps looking at me, I cant move, I hear my son attemting to get another arrow ready. What a nerve racking couple of minutes Brick Wall,) Big smile Big smile she moved around a couple of other trees, she stopped slightly quatering broadside, and then Twack, awesome hit, hair poofed and blood sprayed, she took off running. Yes Yes Yes Yes Steven was shaking so bad he couldnt hardly hold on to a cup of coffee Laugh Laugh we waited for 15 min before heading off after her. We found his first shot arrow, then took a breather then off we went. When we got to her his arrow was laying about a foot away beside her. there were no longer any blades left on the broadhead, so now it looks like a glorified field tip, with blade slots Yes
Here a couple of pics.....

Well got her skinned and quatered last , Steven was into it for awhile, but i think he got bored with the skinning process i started it, then had him give it a shot, then he had me take over, I think part of it was he didnt want to cut the hide rather then being bored. He wants to get it tanned Thumbs up Thumbs up . he helped cut ti up though. Thumbs up Thumbs up
