They are more like cardboard with a hollogram of a coyote on them. They look real from a distance. The funny part is that the geese flew into the lake to have a look see and are still there. They're probably thinking, nice try jack***.

I have to keep them off the greens. The problem is that the lakes are next to the greens. I also created some buffer zones around parts of some lakes that are attractive areas for nesting. I love the geese, I just don't like them feeding on our greens and what they leave behind. I like eating them too but I do that only during hunting season.

Anybody have any experience with rc hydroplanes, boats, helicopters? I'm thinking I might get one to chase the geese of the water until after nesting season is over.

Thanks Marc, I think I've seen that on TV. It looks like it would be fun to chase the geese around with that. I'm having a hard time rationalizing spending this amount of time on these geese until I balance it out with the repair work and droppings on the greens and how they effect our golfers.

Try the fishing line. I had the same problems on the GC years ago and the fishing line solved it.
