In  the fall of 1983 I began my final year of law school.  I was very naive.   My hunting and fishing had been on hold while I pursued my education, no dog.  Glad I made it to here.

By 1983 I had gotten my two tax LLM's (post-doc degrees) and experience in the M&A world, left the big national law firm in Miami. come back to PA and was a partner in local firm.  On 1/1/83, along with three other guys, I left that firm and formed my own. Scary, but by the end of 1983, we had 15 lawyers working for the new firm.  No looking back after that, but not much hunting or much of anything else in those years - 80 hour weeks were the rule.

I've collected and saved by year photos going back to 1961 and for some reason very few for 1983. This one may have been posted before. It was clearly a good year for grouse numbers in WI. My gun back then was a Beretta BL-4 12ga w/26" barrels. Recent years have been disappointing in the number of bird contacts.

In 1983 I was the Area Wildlife Biologist for the Alaska Dept of Fish and Game for the area from Lake Clark to the Aleutian Islands.  Coincidentally I was doing research on brown bears and captured a large number (darting from a helicopter).

I'd stand in a storm any day of the week to be hit by lightning from those clouds!  Meant to be a compliment.

1983 was a great year in some respects and one of my worst in others. But this was certainly a fond memory from opening day of the MN deer season. Three of us, without a clue what we were doing, killed three bucks in the first 1/2 hour of the season. That's me on the right with the orange hat.scan0006.jpg.8302339468aa7f78fa693bde1c085e23.jpg

I've been giving this thread a lot of thought as I have a 15 year old up and coming; I'm going the route, keep it simple whether old school or new technology; you wanna add something to the bag, then pick something to get rid of; figure out how to get more than once use out of the gear you have; be safe, be creative, know how to improvise.

I graduated with a accounting degree in 1982 and was a staff accountant for a utility company. I fished then, but didn't hunt. To busy trying to move up in the corp world.

I was 15, almost had a peach fuzz moustache. I always smile when I see the classic dead stuff in the livingroom pics, I wore my trusty camouflaged Jones cap so everyone knew I was a hunter.

Graduated HS in 1973 and by 1983 I had graduated from the U of Idaho, spent some time in Mexico, had moved to AK (all prior to 1983), bought a plane and learned to fly, met my future wife in 1983, who was working on her MBA and had moved to where I lived in AK to work the summer and I was enjoying, between working, the hunting and fishing life! A lot of seasons, with some memorable adventures have come and gone since then!

In 1983 I was stationed at my second base (Mt. Home AFB, Idaho) met and married my first wife (only on number two now) and hunted and fished my ass off.
