I'm not really impressed with warm, sunny, and 35mph wind for the forecast tomorrow. I would prefer cloudy, cold, and 15mph wind, but I'm going either way.

Just wondering what y'all would expect hunting wise? The birds were there as of this morning and plenty of them.

35 is a little high, but you can bet they are gonna try to get out of the wind. Sunny with wind is a waterfowler's dream if you have flooded timber. Will be tough if you are hunting big water. Hunt up wind if at all possible.

I would rather hunt a blue clear cold day than anything. Too much wind will just pin them down.

Hopefully the wind isn't too crazy at the crack of dawn and we can knock a few down, we shall see.

If your going to be out in a boat, be careful if your on big water.

Wind can eliminate a lot of water where they won't be.

For patos: cloudy, 10-17 mph wind, light drizzle and cold north wind has been the best for me
