Please save the respect for our generation as least a little bit. Our generation seems to use new ammo technology as an excuse to take a shot pushing a respective kill distance even further.
When I first started hunting geese I took a few sky busts. I was sixteen, hunting by myself and didn't know any better. Soon you learn the hard way. Paying for ammo on the V.F.W. Friday night fish fry "salary" I learned to keep the ammo that I had for those moments that I could actually kill a bird.
Last season was a routine. (I hate to say this) hunting geese became little challenge. I never experienced it. We would set up and they would come. Some days not even a cluck out of the layouts. Other days the doors wide open and BSing. One day the sun into our face (the wind direction wasn't in our favor that day for that particular field), doors open and BSing and for minutes birds were in the spread and didn't say anything. But, 35-40 yards is the furthest I will even think about it. Geese were killed at about 15-20 yards all last year and there were misses still.

If you can't call them in, and they are out of reach when the make their way over to my blind, then lay off and let my blind cut them down.
