I feel your' pain brother! Hopefully, some of the seng will come up next year and may give you the opportunity to dig it up and transplant it to the new location. I know that placing fencing or other deterrents are often sign posts to Ginseng poachers as many can be seen from afar. However, I have recommended this before, know that it will work, it has low to no visibility from afar or in most cases, even up close and Deer will bolt the other direction with one step on to it. That recommendation is to obtain old roofing tin from barns and sheds that were torn down, are being torn down or in need of tearing down. This old roofing tin can usually be had cheap and sometimes for free and is a great deterrent for Deer and quite a few other animals. To install it around your' Ginseng crops, beds or plots, just rake back the leaves, limbs and debris from around the perimeter of them, lay the roofing tin flat on the ground around the Ginseng crops, beds or plots and cover them back over lightly with the leaves, limbs and debris. Once a Deer and some other animals take one step on the roofing tin and it pops, crunches or pings, they will turn and go the other direction. They also do not like the feel of the somewhat slippery surface that is has as well. Also, a few rocks strategically placed under the roofing tin, will make for better effects and deterrent when any animal steps on it. There are also a few types of Aluminum siding that will work just as well and sometime even better. These are usually harder to obtain but might be found on old abandoned Mobile Homes. Even assorted pieces of old Aluminum flashing will work well and especially when they are laid out overlapping each other. Who really cares what you use as you are looking for effect and not aesthetics!
