If ducks can dodge shot, you'd think geese could dodge a jet.

I've shot at numerous teal, and some small diver types and it looks like they are literally diving out of the way. I don't know if it's possible for a brain to process 'aware' and 'react' with pellets flying at them at 1,550 FPS, but if they can, that would be very impressive. I bet its more of a involuntary response that their nervous systems develop :lol3:

Duh, that's what the decoys are for. You gotta get them looking at something so they don't notice the cloud of shot that's headed their way.
