When Birdies Are Unwanted
By Kickntrue on 7/7/08
Birdies are a huge problem for golf courses in a couple Utah counties where over 1450 geese have been removed so far. Bird lovers don't fear- they are being relocated not murdered. The geese have been removed for a few years now as the golf courses seem to be a popular spot to hang out.

We've all been to golf courses that are over-geesed. I think I speak for everyone when I say I'm glad they are doing this. I wish they'd call some of my local courses with tips.

There's a bedraggled and goose ridden muni we play from time to time. Sometimes when we're half way down on a par 5 waiting for the group ahead of us to finishing four putting, I practice my swing by hitting the goose droppings. I know it's kind of sick but it cuts the boredom.

Maybe I'm confused but I'm fairly certain that geese can fly. That being the case "relocating" doesn't seem like it would be all that successful, don't canadian geese migrate hundreds of miles twice every year? driving them a few miles away seems dumb.

My solution is simple, it's called a Remington 870.

Maybe Josh & Tripp could team up. Wonder who would get more birdies?

We generally use a 12 gauge, the 870 is for Bambi's dad.

I agree the 870 is the way to go for deer, geese, heck even rabbit or squirrel. Also a little story: here in MI at Ford Motor Co's headquarters they've always has a 'goose' problem well they got to the point where they tried relocating them thousands of miles away, only to have them return a couple days later. After years of trying every potential solution short of draining their ponds they finally gave up...geese 1 - ford 0

delgue, you are correct, I saw 870 and read .270, my mistake.

theredmission: I see that you are in Michigan, do you have any recommendations for courses in the Mackinac area? I'll be there next week for a few days, thanks...
