"The birds are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act."

Don't they have to actually leave to be considered migratory?

These nuisances are full-time Ohio residents and deserve no such protection.

Yep, they're nuisances.
But, in fact, they are migratory.
Our "Ohio" geese migrate a little farther south each winter, and return in the spring.
The birds you see here in winter are true "Canada" birds which have migrated a little farther south from their home territory, to which they will return shortly.
They cannot kill a spook

Not all do that. Ducks were poisoned too and they haven't been migrating if they have steady food. I have some Mallards that showed up at my pond and they have stayed for 5 years.

There are flocks of geese that are considered migratory, others are considered resident flocks. Check the 2014 Ohio Hunting and Fishing rulebook.

Kill them all and let ODNR sort them out.

Guess the reward the DNR is awarding did not compete with reward of eliminating the geese.
