CO deer 19vs20

So with two young kids I'll be staying even closer to home for probably one elk hunt and a deer hunt.  The deer hunt might only be 2-3 trips out during weekdays off.  

I'm going to put in for deer in unit 20 or 19 2nd choice and get another point.  I'd be hunting public land likely during the weekdays of the 3rd season.  I've never harvested a mule deer before so any buck would do.  My question is which unit would you guys recommend for deer, 19 or 20?

neither

How about 191?  Lot more deer there.

Neither 19 or 20 are great, but 20 probably has more huntable deer country.  However, don't overlook Lory State Park if you're going to hunt on a weekday.

I was leaning towards 20 b/c

I was leaning towards 20 b/c I >50% would draw an elk tag there this year so it'd be a pefect opportunity to scout.  

I've got a friend with 2 points though.  You recommend waiting or putting in for an earlier season in 20 for elk?
