Using footholds or snares might come in handy. If you are using snares, put break way locks on it thus they can usually get out because of their hoof.
A deer jump stick will have adult deer go over the stick and the snare. But not sure about small deer which might duck into the loop.

for some tips, they suggested me to use appropriate foothold trap near the trail and draw your target to your set using bait and lure. Avoid urine as it is attractive to deer also. A snare may not always be the most feasible means to trap.
I once successfully implemented a simple trick using blind sets and footholds. I arranged for natural bumps or sticks in the trail and placed the trap under snow. Lure him to the trap with snow chunks or small sticks. The best part is if the deer steps in the trap, they will pull out and the deer are spared any harm.
