    Same happened in my house :x when they came back to remove the traps there was 5 of them.

    (Hi Jack, happy belated new year to you :-D)
    (Hi Barky happy belated new year to you too :-D)

    First answer these questions:
    Where are you, England, N.I, wales, etc?
    Have you read the gun laws yet, regarding ownership rules and/or use rules?
    What kind of weapon are you looking for?

    Clean shot with a modern rifle should do the job or its easy enough to snap their neck a goose is a different matter my grandad broke his leg in the process of dispatching a large goose.
