on our farm we have a pond thats pretty shallow and its in city limits. we have wheat all around the pond and there are about three hundred geese on the pond. they have destroyed a large portion of the wheat. we use a coyote decoy to keep them away but all of the other farmers and golf courses use them also. i need another way to keep them off of there soo we dont lose anymore money.anything ideas would help big time!

Try chasing them off at night. They do not like to be disturbed while coming back to roost at night. If you are using the pond in the evening, they will not. Once they are disturbed enough, they will hopefully stop using the pond. It is hard, since you are in the city limits. Also, talk to your local DNR officer, they may be able to give you a special permit to hunt them because they are destroying your crops.
call 'em in and kill 'em all

Make a "T" with some 2x2 Cloth it and hang some shiney "Pie Tins" from the arm. Hang at least two from each arm so the breeze will make them clang.

I would suggest you use a 12 gage with 3" #2 shot of your choice. The Remmington Heavi-shot is nice, but expensive. Kent Fast-Steel really puts a hurt on 'em.
Check in with your local fish and game dept. They should have a nuiscance animal control policy of some sort, which should let you hunt in the city limits. You'll be able to shoot the pest birds and have fun doing it! BTW, what city are you farming wheat in?
If you need an extra gunner I'll help!

Try planting some high grass all around the edge of the pond. the geese do not like to go through it to feed on the banks.
I'd rather be hunting than talking to you here.

Here in Colorado they have tried explosive noise makers, decoys of coyotes and the like, they have tried hazing them off, they have captured some and tried to relocate them only now no one wants them anymore. A good dog that likes to chase geese and can swim can do it. The best method is shooting them of course because its called selective harvest
