Any preference for weather?

With the chance of rain showers overnight I am excited for first light tomorrow morning. Seems like where we hunt showery days have been more active than clear bright sunny days in recent years.(especially last Monday and Tuesday) what types of weather have brought you the most consistent success in killing a gobbler?

I love hunting spring gobbler in a light rain with no wind.

If you continue to do what you're doing, you'll only get what you have gotten.

Ya I prefer dead calm and dead clear. Nothing worse then a dead wet turkey to me. Gross to dead with and the rainy day gobbler photos are horrible. Yet.........I'll be out tomorrow.

Foggy...light mist, no wind = birds hammering......count me in!!!

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

I prefer calmhumid and overcast. I swear bright sunny days they shut down earlier. Had better luck with them gobbling more on cloudy days. Very light drizzle and a distant rumble of thunder ain't bad neither.

I also have had more success on light rainy or overcast days, especially when it rained through the night. That being said, just after any weather change seems to be good, sunny to rain or vise versa, seems to get the birds coming to calling.
