son's first crossbow buck

My son is 13 and shot a 3 point last evening with his Excalibur Vortex. He was broadside at 15 yards, Double lung shot. I was in a double ladder stand with him. The deer hunched a little,walked fast for 20 yards, then stood for 10 seconds (seemed like 3 days) wagging his tail. Then put his tail up and jumped away. I was almost certian I saw the hair ruff behind the sholder when the bow cracked. When he stopped I couldn't see the entrance hole. My son was sure him made the shot. We waited 20 minutes,found the arrow and then I knew he made a good shot. He tracked him for 40 yards then the high 5's and smiles ear to ear! Excalibur Vortex, G.T. Laser II's(from Arrowhead) and 125 Thunderheads.Can't figure out how to post pics. This is his 3rd buck but first with a crossbow!
