How to wring a goose neck properly?

Hey all,
Last season when I went goose hunting I had to wring a goose's neck for the first time. I wasn't really sure how to do it so I gave it a go. I'm not sure if I killed it (either it was the muscles convulsing or it wasn't dead, as it almost tried to attack me). I guess I'd think it would be pretty straight forward, but what is the most humane way to wring a goose neck?

You have ample neck and a knife, just cut it's head off. I'm not a bird hunter though.

Well I don't know about a goose but a chicken you just palm the head, grab the neck and spin in a circle being sure the head doesn't turn. This breaks the neck, sometimes decapitation, causing instant death. The nerves sometimes still go making it look like it's still alive. Ever heard the saying "running around like a chicken with it's head cut off"? It's pretty true, they sometimes will.

I always held the bird by the neck just below the head, and swung the bird perpendicular to the ground in a full circle, the same way you would swing a weight on the end of a line if you were going to cast it over an overhead tree branch..., the weight of the goose on the downward, back portion of the revolution aids in separation of the neck.

Shoot them in the head to begin with.

I like to take them to a veterinarian and nurse them back to health, then release them and shoot them again as they fly away.

Grab the body of the bird, and whip the head against a tree or rock, it kills them fast.

One or more full twists ,then bend, like you would copper tubing to put tight kink in a 3/8 copper tube.

You guys that say shoot better must be using some of that $4/shell ammo. I'm cheap and typically use Kent Fast Steel.

I prefer to cut their heads off. The more blood you get out of them while they're still warm, the better they'll taste. (I'm not a big fan of eating goose)

Without the theatrics....

Grab the head, kink to the side with a little twist, bounce just enough to lift them. You will you know you got it as soon as you feel something like knuckles popping.

Geese are too heavy to wring like a duck or pheasant.

Those I have hunted with that whirl birds over their head or spin them like a Model T crank do not impress me. It makes them look like a tool. No need to lengthen the neck by three feet.
