Deer can be tricky, especially if you live in an area where deer are going hungry (which is a great many places now with the rampant deer over population).

You may want to try bird netting or set up line of fishing line around the plants. Deer tend to be put off when running into these things. You may also want to try a store bought deer repellent. There are several pretty good ones these days. This article will also have some other ideas:
