For the most part the problem Geese are non migratory geese. Certain flocks have lost their will and need to migrate and become resident populations. So not prone to predation or stresses of their ancestors. Many of these have actually been purposefully released to increase populations that are off the main flyways and to replace migratory birds that are short stopping and not coming on down as far as they once would. By well meaning wildlife managers. They need to let the states have a bit more control over the hunting seasons and limits of these populations. However, a lot of these resident populations do not dine of the kinds of food that makes them delicious and many areas they are not fit to eat. Shame really. They can be superb table fare if they are feeding on the right stuff.
