Rhododendron problem

My rhododendron is about 9 years old and thriving until the deer helped themselves to the leaves on the outer branches. Should I prune those branches off or wait and hope they come back? I live in zone 3-4 in Wisconsin.

Thank you
Ginny

I would refrain from pruning at this point because your rhododendron will likely recover provided it doesn’t happen two years in a row. This article will explain more:
