    Guess you're referring to Deer Hunting? My ideal weather conditions would be:
    1. Windless days or very light wind from the right direction.
    2. Adequate moisture to cut down on noise of moving through the woods toward your stand.
    3. Temps. in the low 40's for high and around 28* for low temp.
    4. Partly sunny to where the sun isn't too much in your eyes.

    The smallest buck I've ever taken was also my favorite hunt. It was a cold, snowy, and somewhat windy morning. Perfect stalking conditions. Love weather that I can stalk in

    I don't like hot weather. I like around 35-40 degrees at daylight and a good wind. Cloudy days over sunny days but have done good with both. So as long as it's not a hurricane or a monsoon, I'm good.

    I like very overcast days, lower than 50 degrees, hardly any wind, when weather fronts are changing and rain or snow or coming in. But then again, I have killed bucks mostly during bright, sunny mornings and even a couple on warm November afternoons around 1 or 2pm. I never expect to see anything on days like that though. Always surprises me.

    Bowhunting:
    1. Cloudy or sunny ...no preference.
    2. No rain... I don't like to risk loosing a blood trail.
    3. Wind ... don't like gusty high winds. But do favor a light wind as I beleve you can get away with a little more drawing back or generally bringing the bow into position.
    4. Temps........ mid-40's -to mid-50's are my favorite. Which cool enough to get deer moving but yet not cold enough that I have to wear heavier clothing that makes it hard to draw a bow.

    Modern gun or muzzle loader:
    1. No preference at all... wind, rain, snow, warm, cold... I'm going to be out. As usually the window to use those weapons is small and any day of those methods is a good day to be out.
