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. Iím from Chandler and my wifeís family has property in Greer, so I know the area well. However, since Iím stationed in CA right now, Iím 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 donít 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 Iíll have such a short time in town. I thought of hiring a guide, but I donít have thousands of dollars to drop on a cow. Iím in good shape and Iím a good shot, so Iím willing to climb mountains, fall down canyons, make high-angle shots, etc., but Iím worried about wasting my limited time looking in stupid or overhunted locations.

Iím going to be deployed for the entire hunting season next year so Iíd 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.

I'd call someone local. Maybe the local game warden, tell them your situation. My guess is they'll have some good ideas to help you out.

Let us know how the hunt goes. And thank you for your service. It's appreciated by many.
