Arrow Rifle Help?

Hi All,
I am new to the forum so I hope I am posting in the right place.
My last hunting trip was crazy, came home woth a boar. Went elk hunting but it got away =-(
I REALLY want to try deer hunting, but haven't yet! I love the meat.

Been hunting many times but never with a rifle as I have never owned one.

All I own is a really nice bow, and some hunting knives.

The reason for my post is I am looking for a rifle. What would you recommend for a rifle that will mainly be used for Deer and smaller game? I don't want anything too big, just one that will work good for this purpose. I stand about 5'5 and maybe 140lbs. I thought about a 30-06. Probably about the 150 yard range or so. It won't be used for boar, we use knives and dogs for those. Any suggestions?
