    Here is a field up road from me in Summer it is corn and sunflower field , now it is  a hangout for Geese , Last year M friend took me and Colleen here , I ranged it it is 1400 yards here ,I know in my yard These geese are a pest they make a mess of lawns , I know with shotgun  , you cant use lead , So I am thinking a NON lead slug or pellet would be superior to take them out ,

    I wouldn't try that with a pellet gun , fed protected gun & shot size varies per state & type of load but not pellet gun use (might as well use a fishing line with corn on a hook) lol

    Only Steel or other non lead shot is allowed even if you are on private property.

    I think all states are non lead shot and bows for geese. You might be able to finagle a special needs permit that allows airbows and crossbows. If you have a 9mm or larger airgun there are airbolts available for those guns.

    .25 Predator GTO FTW.  

    Those damn things in CT are absolutely awful…. fields of poop, devastated grass. 

    Take  me with you, I'm just up north of you

    In my state, its shotgun only.

    Headshots with 18gr pellets do the trick.  Also 30gr slugs will drop them at 150yds with shots at the base of the neck.

    A farmer at one of my permissions is a great shot….handed him my Crown and Impact all dialed and ready, and he did the trigger work.
