    Panel: Linda Michaluk

    Mrs. Jean Davis, a guide, had her quota for bull moose reduced under a new quota system. She appealed, arguing that the high quality moose habitat of her territory should result in a higher quota. The Board found that the quality of the moose habitat had been taken into account and, in fact, the appellant had the highest moose quota per unit area of any of the surrounding guides. Mrs. Davis argued that the quota could be higher, pointing to a higher quota available to guides who had signed an administrative guideline agreement. The Board rejected this, noting that the agreement addresses different issues and the quotas need not be the same. There was no evidence to suggest that irrelevant or unfair criteria had been used in determining this quota. The appeal was dismissed.
