Looking for something that will grow quickly, I think I'd go with cedar.
Here in N. Missouri deer don't eat on them much, but they do rub them. Plus they have the advantage of spreading on their own fairly quickly once you have some mature trees established. This will help fill things in without any additional work on your part.
Additionally, they aren't all that expensive so you should be able to plant several hundred seedlings in a 60 acre plot relatively cheaply and even with a minimal survival rate have a fairly decent stand in a few years.
I'm also trying some loblolly/pitch pines this year as I've heard they will grow quickly, but have no experience with them, other than what I've read.
