Where Have All The Geese Gone?

I'm going to send up a dozen or so to these Folks. Our ballfield here in town is getting all crapped up by these Buzzards.

Re:Where Have All The Geese Gone?

In reply to: Where Have All The Geese Gone?

Hi. George,

Canadian geese used to stop for a rest on a reservoir in my neighborhood. About 4 years ago one was seen floating. It had been shot. They haven't been back.

Geese are now rarely seen.

I live on the river, and the water bird population is less than before. Last year a blue heron started hanging around a couple of blocks away, and raiding a goldfish pond. The homeowner covered the pond with chicken wire, and that did the trick. The heron was back this year, and the chicken wire again was placed.

Makes me wonder if something is wrong with the fish in the river. The waters are not as polluted as they have been. I haven't seen any water birds going after fish this year.

There has been construction of a new bridge a few blocks downriver, so maybe the noise has sent them to a quieter area.

Or, they have all settled in your area. Happy

Sounds like a good shotgun can work wonders.

In reply to: Re:Where Have All The Geese Gone?

Folks around here would be glad to send the geese your way if they could, but they won't use a shotgun. Oh well, It's their towns, not mine.

Re More about this link Bill

In reply to: Goose Hunting Hazards

Thanks for the link Bill. For the past few hours I have been really enjoying this fellow "Baxter Black"

Just for heck of it I typed "Geese" in the search bar on Your Link and came up with a few more interesting inputs on Canadian geese.

I love to send everyone off my company work site

In reply to: Where Have All The Geese Gone?

These stay here year round I believe, they've forgotten to migrate. Pooping machines, aren't afraid of cars, march across the road in a line and squawk at anyone that comes up.

Too bad that a past manager made it such a santuary, I'd like to see them all ran away. They've made me hate the sight of them anywhere. Seeing geese makes me want to buy a gun and a truckload of ammo.

Big lawns and retention basins?

In reply to: I love to send everyone off my company work site

If that's the case suggest that the property managers plant trees and bushes instead of lawn. The geese will hate it.

Large water treatment ponds too, paper mill.

And a past practice of protecting them on site, stupid idea, now they don't even know what north/south is.

And the company use to pay someone to shoot pigions when they got too bad, now they live trap them and release elsewhere,, yeah, right, they'll never come back to somewhere that feeds them corn to walk into a cage, then get let go.

That's a very good suggestion!

Hi James

Well, Maybe it will cut down on food stamps. At least when I become one of the poor next fall, there will be food on the table.

Re:Thanks for all the offers Folks

In reply to: Where Have All The Geese Gone?

Please Do Not send me your geese up here. They muliply like mad. No good to eat either, too tough, too greasy, and taste horrible. I'll take that cowboy that Bill mentioned. Maybe he can sing them to death.

Hope something gets rid of them. Call in the 82nd for an Airstrike I guess.

Did'nt Al Capone run all the Speakeasies out there at that time?

Yes, he did, but he was 'out of town' when the massacre went down.

I get that from ducks

In reply to: Re:Thanks for all the offers Folks

...even domesticated duck, worse for wild duck. For some reason they are too greasy for me to eat, or something in their meat makes me get a queasy feeling. If it's not one that's too gamey I love to eat it, but later I feel ill, so I gave up on duck.
