In a month or so you should know whether those branches will recover. If the twigs turn dry and brittle you have lost the wood, not just the foliage…meaning you will have to prune out the deadwood. But all you can do now is wait; do not feed, just water regularly as normal. In many cases all that was lost from spring browse by deer was the tender foliage, not the twigs. Cross all fingers!
