The thick target technique is extended here to study reactions induced by deuterons. Deuterated target production and characterization is reviewed in detail. The experimental setup used in a previous work, to study proton induced resonances, is complemented here with an additional thin transmission detector for standard particle identification with the E-$\Delta $E technique. Through the measurement of the excitation functions of the $^{2}$H($^{12}$C,d) and $^{2}$H($^{12}$C,p) reactions, resonant states in $^{14}$N are studied. Using known energies and widths for resonances in the relevant energy range, good fits were obtained with R-matrix calculations.
