67 or 54

Guys I am accumulating preference points for a mule deer hunt in preferably 67 which is where I am going to be elk hunting but was curious as to the quality compared too 54. Can somebody help me out with what kind of preference points it takes to hunt either archery or 3rd rifle in these units.  I tried but down understand the break down them it on the Dow website.

suggestions?

67 is better

67 doesn't have a general elk season like 54 has so if you aren't in a hurry then wait for 67. 3rd season for 54 took 3 pp. for res. and 6 for non-res. 67 took 6 for res. and 9 for non-res. Archery 67 was 1 pp for res and non res., 54 took 0 points.

67

May as well do a combo in the same unit!! 54 really isn't back yet for Deer and may never be back to what it was unless they change some things!! There are still great Deer there, just not as many!!  If you are going for Elk in 67 it is always nice to have that Muley tag in your pocket!!!
