I been clearing some from horse paddocks last few days,they do make a mess off grass with there droppings,not what I would call sport though only shoot em if they are on paddocks easy.Much prefer to call em in with decoys but got to be careful and stick to general licence terms and conditions,nice eating never waste em.

If you are in England then you will need steel shot! try a 12 Bore with 36gr 3's steel shot

The general advise is to go down 2 sizes for steel so for 6 shot you want 4 steel etc

Lesley, what do you do with all those dead geese? Are they all Canadas or mixed? I shoot them all year round but this time of year particularly now they're breeding. Certain spots I do I need to use discretion like this morning, out early and I pricked 35 eggs. Shooting isn't an option, it's just too public. Ten is a good bag for me, because they're a pain to get rid of! I tend to leave one or two out for the carrion feeders and Charlie and some of the others go to bait traps, but they're hard work to shift. I checked on a spot this morning I hammered last April and there's nowt there, not one goose. It seems the message has got through. I hope so
