This information was passed on to me from the knifes current owner. Here we have two pictures of the current TrailGuide.
Craig Sanders engraved Leisure Lynx with aluminum guard and I believe reconstituted ivory. If it's not than the handle material is Dymar. Rosewood Dymondwood handled Ducks Unlimited knife. Next is the Right side from top to bottom. Walnut Dymondwood handled limited edition. Rosewood Dymondwood handled limited edition with brass butt cap. Rosewood Dymondwood handle and standard butt cap.
Cocobolo with brass butt cap. Only about 25 of these were made. Standard Micarta handled variant. Reconstituted ivory handle and aluminum guard. There are probably less than 50 of these in existence. Here is a limited edition example featuring a Walnut colored Dymondwood handle. At this time I do not know how many of these were made. It seems that the information I reported earlier on this variant is incorrect. I originally was told that there were only two prototypes of a proposed Ducks Unlimited knife for The exact same art work was used by Buck knives and Schrade knives, for the actual DU knives which were offered to it's members in , and that BlackJack did not make a DU knife in Lastly I was told that an example was retained by Ducks Unlimited, and until recently it was assumed that this knife was still in the possession of Ducks unlimited.

The art work was and I am sure still is owned by Ducks Unlimited. Here is another TrailGuide with brass fittings and Rosewood colored Dymondwood handle.
It is marked as being a limited edition. This was purchased from the estate of a former BlackJack employee who used this knife on a daily basis. At this point you have probably noticed that the TrailGuide seems to have been the most popular model when it comes to variations. Here we have a stag handled version with the not so commonly encountered polished aluminum guard. Next up are these three views of an interesting crown stag example with a nice hand painted butt cap which was added after the knife was made.
