Two strand electric fence, heck one will work. Now, bait the electric fence to encourage the deer to lick it... peanut butter works well. If you don't think this works, imagine licking an electric fence.
Works great on pest dogs and coyotes if you use bacon, or scraps of meat.
To put peanut butter, make tabs of aluminum foil.
Generally, it takes one lesson, and they will never come near again. Probably think they have been hit by the hammer of Thor or something. lol

Bears, on the other hand, it only sometimes deters. A friend of mine in VT has lost 5 or 6 hives to bears even with the electric fence bacon trick. They eat the bacon and the bees
