Here are some articles that should help:
(You are in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a or 6b in order to cross reference your deer resistant plant selections with cold tolerance)
Here are some popular selections: Barberry, Privet, Holly, Pyracantha and Juniper.
Deer tend to avoid anything with thorns or pungent smells.
