Personnally, I would wait for em to touch down then pop em on the water.
Ahh.. but thats no fun shooting them off the water while they are still. I'll do that when I go Turkey hunting this spring.
Besides if if your shooting at somthing flying in the air you better be using flu flu's. If not, your going to have some long walks to get your arrows back if you miss (and you will miss alot). A Flu flu will go 100yrds at the most, so usually its not a problem seeing what your background is.
Plus your using rubber blunts. If your using broad heads or field points (unless you hit it in the neck or head which is not likely), Say goodbye to that arrow because it going to be stuck in that goose and that goose wont die untill it flys away a couple miles.(trust me I made the mistake of using one of those field points with a flared out end and that goose flew well out of my sight which was probably about 3 miles)
