Need help! Northern Idaho mule deer northeast washington?

Hey guys!  I'm out here working in Washington and thinking about a mule deer hunt innorthern Idaho maybe unit one or two. Are these units worth hunting for mule deer or mainly whitetail?  I choose them cause I don't have lots of time and they are fairly close.  Or should I try somewhere in northeast washington?

I have seen mule deer in unit

I have seen mule deer in unit 1 but not in unit 2. 

That said, it is not the typical mule deer habitat you read about.  When I have seen mule deer it is few and far between because their numbers are low and the brush is thick.  During the 2011 season only 5.1% of the deer killed in unit 1 were mule deer.  Dont let that stop you from trying, after all if you have a hard time finding a mule deer you can shoot a whitetail with the same tag.
