I live in Charlotte, NC and planted luscious F1 sweet corn. It's been doing great, tassels are up and ears just started forming and today one of my plants was eaten through the side to the point of breaking. Another has damage as if something is eating into the side where an ear is just forming. Can anyone tell me what is doing this? The black spots are where ants have discovered the damage.

With holes that big, I would suspect deer.
