Two deer in 5 minutes

(Shreveport, LA USA)
It started off a good morning. It was the youth hunt, I was excited. I had a good feeling about my new spot.
It was me and my cousin and we were sitting in our blind looking down the lane at the corn for a good 30-45 minutes. We heard footsteps here and there. But nothing ever came out.
Well, after a good hour and a half, he decided to take a nap. He told me to wake him up when a deer walks out. He laid down for not even 10 minutes. I was looking through my binoculars when all the sudden a head popped out. Then another one, and another, and another. All three does. And then, a five-point walks out.
I wake my cousin up. He takes the binoculars, and tells me to get my gun up. I get it up, get the scope on the buck, but I can't take the shot, one of the doe's heads was in the way. I waited for her to put her head down, and I took the shot.
He dropped right in his tracks. All the others ran off. But that one doe was still standing there. I turned to my cousin and said, "She is still standing there." He turned to me, without missing a beat, and said, "Why haven't you shot yet?" So I put another one in, got my scope on her, took the shot. She ran about 10 yards, if that.
We waited a couple of minutes. Then we went down there and the buck wasn't quite dead yet. Even though both of his front shoulders were busted, he tried to get up and run. He had no luck. After a good 3-5 minutes, he died.
I was so happy. It's my biggest buck so far. I'm 16 years old. I also love the gun I was using, 7mm-08. Very nice gun.
So in conclusion, I got two deer within five minutes.
Thanks for reading.
