I live in Peoria and am trying to find more info on the over the counter elk hunt around the verde valley. Know anyone that has given it a try? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks,

Wow....just saw this thread so sorry it took me awhile to get back to you.
I am not the most knowledgeable on the elk hunting here and I have not seen much elk here either. I have been told that they stay close to the Verde river and know one guy that took one last year around the river off of Middle Verde Road. Most of that property is Private property so he must have got permission from a land owner to hunt there. He has lived here all his life so he probably knows someone that let him hunt there but he has not invited me to go with him so that's about all I know. I have considered trying to do some scouting on some of the public land along Wet Beaver Creek but have not made it there yet. Sorry I am not more help but I just don't have much experience hunting elk period. Would be fun I am sure and hopefully I will get an opportunity to get some time into it someday soon.
