We also knew there were deer in the area - as they actually pass through our property every other night or so as a herd. I used wooden 6' fence posts - sunk 2' in the ground and then used electric fencing posts inserted holes drilled in the top of the fence posts. I bought an electric fence charger and wire from a Craigslist add for $40 or so and went to town. As it ends up - I haven't even had to energize the fence - ever. I guess I consider myself fortunate. We have had ZERO issues with wildlife in the garden.

You were smart and took charge from day 1 so they didn't develop the habit of easy food.
