I have also had deer eat Juno iris foliage, but it did not kill the 
plants. Most geophytes can recover from being grazed during one 
growing season. I hope Tecophilaea can, because rabbits just ate all mine.

The only way to keep deer out of the garden is to put up an 8-foot 
fence with a closed gate, or a lower fence with a predatory large dog 
in it all night.
