We seem to be getting off track and I apologize to the OP and membership for my part in that.

I believe the OP is more interested in reducing the goose population. Geese and ducks can both make a mess and ducks spread "Duck Itch" parasites. They both eat the same foods so feeding one species will attract the other.

Littering the lake and shore for some personal gratification or amusement is perhaps not in the best interests of the waterfowl and human communities of the lake. Acclimating animals of any kind, to humans as a food source usually ends badly for the critters. They lose their fears which exposes them to accidents, malnutrition and become too stupid to avoid hunters.

For additional practical suggestions, check the websites of F&G and your local animal control department or even the health department if your community has one.
