I always try to keep that direction down wind when I can. That's great to see two buck your first time out. Any time that you get to draw is exciting. Good luck the next time.

One of the things I do when I first get into my stand the first couple of times i hunt is to practice drawing my bow at various places i'd expect to see deer. It seems to help when there's actually deer in front of me if I've already drawn down in that particular direction.
I also try to draw my bow as early as possible when the deer are further out... I'm sure lots of guys will disagree and say that holding for extended periods affects accuracy due to shakes and such. However, my bow fits me so well I really feel that I can hold full draw for quite a long time... The very first deer I ever killed with my bow came in out of the corn field in a group of 8 does... I was at full draw as the first one entered the timber 40-45 yards away... I had an opening at 30 yards, but all 8 ended up circling up in the clearing in front of me... they ranged from 5 feet to 15 yards, all looking different directions... I didnt' have to worry about trying to draw and get busted because i was already at full draw.
I should clarify that i do NOT try to aim at a deer at all until i'm ready to take a shot...
