Default AZ Unit 1 Late Cow Hunt

Hey everyone, I had a couple of questions for the board.

I drew a cow tag for the late (15-31 December) firearms hunt in AZ Unit 1. I知 from Chandler and my wife痴 family has property in Greer, so I know the area well. However, since I知 stationed in CA right now, I知 only going to have December 26th to 31st to fill my tag.

I spend a couple weeks every summer in Greer and Springerville, and usually see hundreds of elk, but I don稚 have a lot of knowledge on where to look in the winter, and during the last hunt of the year.

I was hoping that any locals or people with area knowledge could give me some advice on that hunt since I値l have such a short time in town. I thought of hiring a guide, but I don稚 have thousands of dollars to drop on a cow. I知 in good shape and I知 a good shot, so I知 willing to climb mountains, fall down canyons, make high-angle shots, etc., but I知 worried about wasting my limited time looking in stupid or overhunted locations.

I知 going to be deployed for the entire hunting season next year so I壇 like to make this one count. It would be my luck that this is the first time I drive up to Greer and all the elk have disappeared, haha. Thanks for the advice.
