Not singling out anyone in particular on this thread; I have seen stupid, ignorant, and foolish posts in this thread. I only use the above quote to make a point (and in doing so I do have to say that, yes LiquidA45, you are being ignorant.)
Since this has turned into a nitpicking thread, I just wanted to point out that "ignorance" is defined as the lack of knowledge, information, learning, etc. NOTHING wrong with being ignorant. I am 100% ignorant on LOTS of things such as how to knit a sweater, and I'll choose to be ignorant about that as long as I live.
One aspect of this forum is for ignorant people to ask questions so they can learn. Unfortunately, too many members here don't know the difference between ignorance and stupidity and that's when a thread can go bad.
Yup LiquidA45 is ignorant (without knowledge/information) about shot size for geese, so he asks (in Dicks and on here). Nothing wrong with that.
Back to the OP, I always use BBs, but agree most "rock" will do at over the decoy range. However, I do feel late season geese, with a much more armoured up layer of feathers and fat, are better hunted with larger shot size. And for whoever posted that they were afraid they'd have BBs laying around if they didn't use them all....use 'em on the ducks???? There are many times I have my third shell as a BB, especially on days when the shots may be a little longer like windy days when that last shot might be a little further than normal.
