Your only hope is if you or someone else took a local backup - worth checking on the backup history table -

Presumably even if in FULL Recovery Model there will be NO Log to (tail) backup UNLESS a Full Backup was taken in the past?

SQL Server keeps logs for each deleted record. You can query these logs via the fn_dblog SQL Server function.

SELECT [RowLog Contents 0]
FROM sys.fn_dblog(NULL, NULL)
AllocUnitName = 'dbo.TableName'
AND Operation in ( 'LOP_DELETE_ROWS' )
But this log is in Hex format and you need to convert this Hex format to your actual data.
