Welcome from Va. and yes theres good advice all over this site, could you please tell us more about yourself, where you plan to hunt? Public land or private, what experience do you have hunting in general? Just starting theres so much to learn.
Start with the basics, learn all you can about deer, spend all the time you can in the area you plan to hunt, get your body and eyes in shape to hunt, when you decide on a rifle and scope(if you want and can afford it)don't cut corners, those will be your biggest investment.
Once you have them, use them, learn them, practice all you can, try different ammo, and see what your rifle likes the best(shoots the best groups).
Hunting is unlike alot of other sports, you can't be a"casual"hunter, the game deserves your very best, so learn all you can, talk to folks in your area, and post questions you have here, heck tell us what you've learned, we can learn also.
Best of luck, and keep us in formed
