The appellant appealed the respondent’s decision to suspend his hunting license for a two year period. The appellant had his hunting privileges suspended after an incident in which he shot at a 14 year old trapper and his dog believing them to be a wounded deer. The respondent imposed a two year suspension.
The Board found that the appellant has already been delayed one year due to the appeal being filed. It found that the appellant was badly shaken by an unfortunate incident and he had subsequently taken the C.O.R.E. program. The Board found there was nothing to be gained from further prolonging his suspension.
