    This is a two part question sparked by a friendly hunting buddy debate.

    What do you think are the best (and worst) indicators of deer movement? For example, if you had to pick to hunt one out of 7 days, what would you hope that the conditions would be ideally for that one day. Everything in play. Weather? Moon? Temperature?

    Also, What would you absolutely not want on that one particular day?

    I think weather without question. If you look at the forecast for the week and see that Wednesday a front is moving in, bring some type of weather, you better believe that the deer will be moving before that front and after it subsides. This is especially true before a late fall snow storm moves in.

    About the only thing I hate is wind. Wind, outside of just about any other condition, shuts deer down the fastest.

    I'm gonna have to agree with this. Weather plays a huge factor, especially when the front is coming in and the temperature makes a radical change. And I agree about the wind, I absolutely hate hunting in high winds. Seems to slow down deer movement, plus I can't hear anything.
