Wind shouldn't matter much unless you're hunting a hole in the timber that's big enough for the ducks to land into the wind instead of dropping straight down. Again, depending on the size of the hole your decoy spread could be as little as half a dozen mallards/gadwall with a couple of them on a jerk string or as many as 100 of the same. You can also bunch of your decoys in spots that you don't want the birds to land to funnel them toward where you do. Ideal weather for flooded timber is usually clear and cold with about 10-15mph wind. Good visibility for your decoys and casts plenty of shadows to hide in.

Like the guy above me said unless its a big hole that the wind comes through it does'nt matter. Pick the best hiding spot you can with the sun to your back.
