I believe the 11 foot per flap is for the average speed of a 10 pound goose, with a 5.5 wing span. I read a similar article. Most guys shoot behind the bird,
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason

When I patterned factory hevi shot BB in my 10 GA I had big holes in my patterns.

We don't concentrate on geese but occasionally get some shots. First goose I ever shot was just out in front of the blind and a little high, probably 35 yards. It was in a small group of 5 passing left to right. Put the bead in front of the lead bird and killed the second one in line, stone dead. Seemed like they were barely moving. It was a great visual lesson on lead!
