Got a hunt with a guide in the panhandle for bear. What can I expect for weather in the spring?

Everything from snow, rain or sunny and warm. This year the 3rd week should be a great time.

Thanks, I had looked at historical records but wanted the local knowledge. Thanks for the 3rd week info too.

Who are you hunting with?

From: Coyote 65
I hunted with Buckshot outfitters out of Naples. They had two more hunters coming in right after me and then they were out of business Sold it to someone else.

Doesn't matter though as it was a great experience. Did not get a bear, but did see some, mostly sows with cubs.

Had rain, snow, sleet, hail and even some sun.
