use millet instead of shot. Works really well. It's what we use for blanks at dog trials

Forget the gun. The best thing for geese is a dog, especially a lab. The golf club I used to belong to had a terrible goose problem until the superintendent started riding around at night with his dog. In just a couple of months, the geese were gone, and never returned. My current club doesn't have a dog, and the geese are terrible, even attacking carts if they decide to lay their eggs near the cart path.

One came after me today. I might have to carry on the golf course.

Coyote decoys can work to keep geese away.

The geese around town here haven't migrated in 20 years, and probably wouldn't flinch at a distant gunshot anyway. They'll stop traffic (well, the geese lovin' drivers do actually) on a 6 lane boulevard while they take their sweet time crossing it.
Get some 'Twin Shot' pest control shells...it essentially lobs a large loud firecracker right out there with 'em.

Riding around with his "dong"........LOL!! I about wet my pants pete:shot: .... It is good that he has it with him, since leaving it unattended at home might cause trouble....

Here in Michigan we have non migrating nuisance geese. You can take the with a small game license. They taste good smoked
