Mr. Quillian left us today finally to go to a better hunting ground free from pain. I knew him personally like a few of us on this board. I disagreed with him sometimes, listened sometimes and just stood back and watched most of the time at a lost art. Dan Quillian was a man. He would call a spade a spade. He practically single handily got Ga a bow season. I know some of you will have some things to say about Dan but as a bowhunter he did something that takes just damn nerves. He shot a brown bear at 10 yards, by himself ( guide had left briefly) with a ganggreen foot. No way to run, no gun. Nothing. Just Dan.......I have a close friend who use to have the world record brown bear..he says he's still in awe of Dan and that bear. Big Dan...THANKS..you were BOWHUNTER...

He helped me find some superceder arrows once-didn't really need to; but he was just that kind of guy.
Bigger than life for sure.
Condolences to his family.

One of the voices for longbows at a time when not many voices were being heard on the subject. I use to read his column in the old "Western Bowhunter" rag when traditional bowhunters that wrote anything were fairly few and hard to find. Thanks Dan, for the knowledge and commitment.

Dan inspired me to leave the Compound world. I had one of his Patriot bows. One of the Good guys. He will be missed. Thanks Dan... Jeff
