Default Bow hunting for geese???

I want to shoot a goose with my legacy this fall and I was wondering if anyone else has shot a goose or tried to with their bow? If so what worked best for you?

I think there are special feathers you buy for goose hunting with your bow.

I have never done it, but have seen it done. The feathers pse-archer mentions are called flu-flus. These are oversized fletchings the dramatically reduce range. Missing a goose with standard arrow/fletching would of course result in the loss of a perfectly good arrow and perhaps a very angry farmer with an arrow sticking out of his tire next spring. The preferred set-up involves a recurve or longbow for fast shooting, flu-flu arrows and the hardest hitting head you can find, full penetration not being the ultimate goal, but shock on the target.

well if it is legal Flu FLu feather would be the way to go, I would like to see a goose shot with an arrow. If the arrow sticks it might make it hard for th dog to feth it up.

I have seen hunters bowhunt pheasnt, pretty amazing. They were all using flu flus so as no to lose their arrows. So I imagine waterfowling would be the same, just don`t do it over wster!
