Deer resistant garden?
If deer are hungry enough they'll eat just about anything. Some plants are less palatable to them than others, but even the less preferred plants will be eaten if deer populations are dense and browsing pressure is great enough. To prevent excessive deer damage you may need to use a combination of techniques including plant selection, fencing, and deer repellents. Here's a link to the Colorado State University Extension guide sheet on the problem.
