Technically speaking, I think this photograph has been well-taken. The main subject is sharply in focus and correctly exposed, in my opinion.

Artistically speaking, I think I may have a couple of suggestions how to improve such photographs. Judging from the shallow depth of field, I would guess that you took this photograph with your Sigma lens zoomed right in to 300mm. Even at this setting, your main subject still does not fill the frame, thereby reducing its impact. This is why professional wildlife photographers buy those very expensive super-telephoto lenses. Perhaps, you could have used Shanks's zoom and walked closer. But, in this particular case, as there appears to be no barrier between you and your main subject, I don't think I would recommend this, as it would have been rather dangerous. Your main subject stands out quite well from the background. However, that said, the backs of the deer are in line with a shadow in the background. This is called a stolen edge, which detracts from the composition, they say. If you were to have taken this photograph from a higher or lower viewpoint then this edge would not have been stolen.
