What's with these deer?

Yesterday was "put away the garden for the winter day" at our house. For me that meant taking down the variety of angels and chicken wire fencing and other garden art. In doing so I noticed the plants that the deer have been nibbling on, many of which are on their "don't eat" list: columbine, iris, and garlic! I couldn't believe that they nipped off the slender shoots of the garlic cloves I planted last month. Garlic is included in the liquid fence and deer out sprays I've used. I know it was the deer and not the ground hog because their hoof prints were all through the bed.
