You're lucky that you have those options, here in the C and B Zones of Cali, were forced to hunt in indian summer. It's still dry and hot, so the animals are still up high in the mountains and very active.

The chief benefits of winter hunting is that tracking is much easier, the animals are easier to spot, they aren't as over hunted, they're lazier due to the lack of high energy foods that are available prior to the snows and tend to stick to lower elevations.

I'd base the decision on your willingness to hunt in the nastier conditions and you success during the fall hunt. If you come close to bagging out and have no desire to freeze, then stick with the fall option. If you success is less than stellar during the fall and you guys are looking for more adventure, then head out in the winter.
