In 4 years here, the geese have only walked over to our yard 1-2 times (about 50-75ft. away). Once when I saw them, I just yelled and clapped my hands and they "quacked" a few times and headed back over to the dam.

My "plan" is:

1st time - yell!
2nd time - maybe a shot with a LOW-powered BB gun
3rd time - hold up a bottle of BARBECUE SAUCE and wave it at them!

Small sky rockets fired over their heads- works every time.
