congrats on your early successes. Bow hunting is a great experience. practicing is what it's all about. What kind of draw weight do you have? Hunting from elevated stands is an effective way to bow hunt. You may benefit from using expandable broad heads like a Rage. Knowing the deer patterns for travel and food is something you will need to know to set up your stand location. Use good camo and scent masking sprays.

I think the best thing you can do is find someone older than you who bow hunts and kinda shadow them for part of this upcoming season. Plus they'll be able to help you find a good bow, good draw weight, good broadheads and so forth. I have only been bow hunting for about 4 years now and I love it... not quite as much as firearm season, but pretty doggone close. Good luck!
