The deer have eaten the bark off parts of the limbs of my apple tree. I will have to actually cut about 3-4 bottom limbs off. Is there something I need to put on the cut that will protect the rest of the tree? Thanks for any info you can give me.

No, just make a nice clean cut.  Current thinking is that painting the cut with pruning paint provides no benefit and may cause the wound to heal more slowly than it would untreated.
