chase dogs, relandscape around the pond, string fishing line across the lake about a foot or two off the the water. Ive seen limited sucess with fake owls and other such deterents.

ther is a chemical than can be sprayed, that deters teh gees from eating the grass, but the success is marginal....

That's a lot of birds for a stupid small gun, you need the right tool for the job.
Unless you were planning to be there all day...

You need a self-reloading, fast firing tool here, something that don't play.
IMO, you could try the General Electric XM214 Microgun:


It's not the most accurate, but it don't matter.

AK47 with a couple of 40 round banana clips. Even if ya don't hit them, the sound of one of those things will scare the crap out of them to leave

Get a dog that hates 'em or a goose gun. It fires off something like fireworks and once you have scared them from that area, they will not return. did it for years on golf courses.

My area had to deal with geese just a few years back. It took the city/county/state people two years to figure out that if one pond/wetland had too many geese, so did every other one in the area. And trying to repell them only kept them stirred up like a bunch of hornets . And all the time they took for "studies" to be done only alowed more breeding, hence, more geese! and geese related problems.
When it was all said and done, the only solution was to kill a number of them. And that they did, by the thousands. It's been about five years now and the number of geese are growing again to the point that I'm sure this will all be done again in two or three years here.
