16ga, 20ga, or 28ga shotgun for geese?

semi auto may help soak up some recoil, along with a big recoil pad.

20ga if not a 12ga...

you could shoot 2-3/4" 12ga... also maybe rather than max shot loads, lesser shot.

At our club in Arkansas, we have several young hunters and some older one's that shoot lower gauge shotguns
at both geese and ducks. They take (for the most part) good shots and use Hevishot loads.

I saw several Snow Geese taken last week with the new Hevi X 20 gauge shells....the geese never even twitched when they hit the ground

Another major endorsement for the Hevi X shells. I have been using them during this waterfowl season and
they have worked amazingly......they hit hard and pattern perfectly
