There's a limited amount that you can do. If the damage does not extend around too much of the trunk the tree should recover, albeit scarred. If the damage has removed bark but not damaged the cambium (the green layer just beneath the bark) it can sometimes help to tie some moss around the damaged area to stop it drying out too much whilst it recovers.

Deer tend to return to the same tree to rub the velvet off their antlers, so you will need to put up some protection.
