I believe that the last year was 1982, and those were the special limited runs made with red bone and green bone handles. I don't think that those were even made for Hawbaker.

The last year that the older style Hawbakers were made for Hawbaker was 1978.

There was also a special stag collector's edition that came with a small replica of a muskrat trap. I believe these were after 1982 but I'm not sure.
