Just one of the silly stand-up ones that you can dress in seasonal outfits. Most of the goose would be covered by clothes.

edited to add.. found one on Amazon that has a hole in the bottom to add sand.

Thanks. I've looked on Amazon, but I'll have a look at your first link. Concrete would be nice, but shipping would probably have to be financed. Not to mention I'm a little old lady and can't jerk the thing around if it weighs much. The Amazon descriptions don't say much but the customer reviews to talk about the hole. That would work.

True, that. My little S&W .38 should do the trick.

Great idea!

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I won't be able to get the stench out of my head! They are messy, aren't they! That's why I want a fake one. I have fields on 2 sides of where I live and lots of water in the area. That translates to lots of geese. Mean suckers, too. They'll stalk you and walk right up onto the porch.

I've seen them at lawn and garden sections of stores. What you want is a goose shaped planter.

Every spring and summer, it's a contest to see who wins...the geese getting off the yard or the dog sneaking up on them and giving chase!

But yeah...sand for yours.
I have a lawn vulture. Thankfully, he's not looking at me.
