I met Dan a couple of times, the one that I remember most was at the Howard Hill shoot in Alabama where we had a "discussion" about how deep in your fingers you should hold the string when drawing. You are right in that he was set in his ways, stubborn even. Could even be crude at times, but you knew where he stood. Most guys that walk their own path have that same demeanor.
Bet that big campfire above is a little livelier tonight with Dan sitting in the circle.

Godspeed Mr Quillian, and keep a "DEEP" hook.

Prayers go out to his family and friends. I know he will be missed. Never met him, but heard a lot about him and all of it was good. He is in a better place for sure.

ferret, you bring back some fond memories for me. Dan gave me the most important archery lesson ever. "If your arrow is not pointing towards the bullseye, it want hit it"

Aim down your arrow because thats where it's going.

I never met Dan, but I've been around DD a good bit. I'm pretty sure that acorn didn't fall from the tree and Dan must have been one heck of a guy. I know he'll be missed. My prayers will be with the family and friends he's left behind for streets of gold.

Most folks have no idea what Dan has done for bowhunting. We were at a 4-H meeting where Wayne Pacell (PETA) was speaking. Dan stood and asked him what his salary was. He ignored him. He stayed standing and kept asking until security made him leave. His examples where easy to follow cause he was right.
they thru me out about 10 minutes later :-)
He also convinced me to switch from a recurve to a longbow after watching me shoot. That was 1990 or so. Bye Dan.

I'd written to inquire after his health last week. He had my complete and absolute respect.

Here's to you, Dan. Well done.

Biggie and I just hung up telling ole Dan stories. One of my favorite Dan stories was in the early 90's at the Atlanta Buckerama ( Redneckarama) ole Dan had a booth with his full mounted bear in it, basically showing everyone what a longbow could take down. He was a hit. After the show ...get this now... he strapped that huge bear on the back of his Winnebago using hitch haul for the base. Off he went on I-285 in Atlanta on a Sunday afternoon deep in Atlanta church traffic. My buddy Trigger and me were following him to make sure he didn't have any trouble. People were either driving up yelling at him or waving at him. We laughed so hard we almost wet our pants. i asked him later did the granola crunchers get on his nerves that day yelling at him. he said " Nope, he knew his power sterring was a little loose and he was swerving some." !!!!!! I loved it..

A friend and hunting partner of Dan taught me to shoot the longbow at age 8. Got to hear a few stories.......he will be missed.

Prayers go out to all of Dan's friends and family.

My first longbow was a Bamboo longhunter. I had several conversations with Dan while I had that bow. I bought it used but he said I coould call anytime....and I did a few times. BTW....I shoot with a deep hook.
