I've been getting into duck hunting more and more over the past 2-3 years but have basically only gone when my schedule has allowed, meaning I haven't really been able to pick and choose hunting days based on weather. That being said, I'll be with family near a large reservoir most of this week and will be able to get out a bit. With the big weather system moving in Thursday, I'm trying to see which days set up best for bird movement on a big body of water. What of these days in the forecast look the most promising to you?

Friday
The front arrives. High of 67 reached in the morning, cooling to 50 in the afternoon. Wind shifts from SE at 12 mph in morning to NW at 10 mph in afternoon. Rain chances 50% in the morning increases to 100% in afternoon.

Saturday
100% chance of rain all day. Temperature hovers around 50 all day. Sustained N wind 8-10 mph.

Sunday
60% chance of rain in the morning. Low in the high-40s warms up to mid-50s. N wind 8-10 mph dissipates in the afternoon.

If it was totally up to me I would be out every day, too! But I won't be able to get away with that during the holidays.

Like everybody else, I say hunt every day. But, if you want a guess, I'd say Saturday would be best with the new N. wind in place.

I am not sure how well the ducks are going to fly on Friday and Saturday with the amount of rain we have forecast… My bet is on Sunday when the rain is supposed to stop in my area anyways, central Texas.

Same. It is supposed to rain Thursday-Sunday. With Sunday being the "lightest." I have hunted Mon, Tues and will hunt tomorrow and hopefully Thursday just in case of the rain that is expected on Friday and Saturday. Plan to hunt Sunday. But all that may change, it's always changing.

Too much rain or wind typically keeps them hunkered down. I would think Friday and Sunday would be best if talking about weekend.

4-5 inches of possible rain totals in North Texas is a tird floater

More I type, more I am thinking Sunday- but looks like wind or lack of wind may be probable- pull out all the motion if that's the case

^^This. How often are weather forecasts that accurate??? Some of you put more stock in the weather man than I do roflmao

Yes birds tend to sit in driving rains but if you have the option of being in a covered blind, I certainly would go out. You just never know and its better than sleeping in and wondering.

i am of the same opinion as beaver. I am not nearly as mad at the ducks as I used to be. Life is too short to duck hunt in the rain. I like blue bird days with a cold north 10 mph wind. You can hunt all day long. I have the opposite opinion of a lot of people about ducks and bad weather. I find they will sit still in really bad weather. I have had my best shoots on blue bird days.

Apparently it rained last night and has been sprinkling off and on this morning. Birds are scarce.
