Deer ate my hyacinth...should I pull them?

This is my first spring w/bulbs. My hyacinth were looking beautiful. I had so many and the colors were beautiful. I didn't spray them bc I assumed they were safe. Jokes on me bc the deer ate all the flowers off of them!
My question: do I need to pull them and start again next fall? Is there enough left if just the stems are left for the bulbs to rebuild and be able to bloom again next year? I don't mind starting again but if I don't have to that would be great too. Thanks in advance. Laura

Leave them, they will be fine. Even small stubs of stems and foliage will allow the bulbs to survive.
