Ron, in a million years I would never have thought of deer
enjoying roses!  I presume from your message that they leave
your garden alone...? This would be because you live in a
built-up area? 

I belong to a rose group most of whom live in greater L.A.
They each grow from 75 to 400 roses in their own
back/front/side yards.  In fact, if they could live in the car,
and knock down their houses in order to create more space, I
believe that they would.  And, of course, all of them live in 
residential neighborhoods. 

No one has a deer problem.  Their chief complaint seems to be
a neighbor problem. People help themselves to roses that
are growing near the street -- they don't realize that the roses
are grown for competition purposes, and what gets stolen 
might have been intended for a major contest . . .
