You will notice that they will fold one wing in or under their body.
This causes them to drop like a stone. Actually they will fall at d = v1*t + (1/2)at^2
When they do this it makes it for some skill when shooting. Well maybe some luck too.
There were some great pictures posted by someone yesterday showing geese doing this at their best.
