For those who deal with hungry deer, I would strongly recommend a deer
fence.  If you are a serious gardener, it is well worth the cost.  The
fence I installed about 6 years ago is heavy duty plastic mesh that can be
nailed to trees and almost vanishes behind the summer foliage.  Where trees
are not available, the posts fit into sleeves that you drive into the
ground with a sledge hammer.  No hole digging required, and it didn't take
us very long to fence in roughly 3/4 of an acre.  Since installing the
fence, the only deer we have seen near the house was a very tiny fawn that
pushed through a hole I hadn't noticed

The plastic mesh doesn't stop bunnies, so now I am retrofitting wire rabbit
fence along the bottom of the deer fence.  I'm attaching it to the deer
fence and posts with zip-ties, so it is also relatively easy to do myself.
