Dan started the Ga Traditional Bowhunters in mid 80's. He was a one man show trying to get his archery business off the ground ( later on that) and raising a large family not to mention trying to form an unheard of bowhunting org in a state that barely had a season. Well his archery org concept was two new then and the new club folded. About 3 years later Biggie gets a call from Dan he had something to give him for the newly formed Traditional Bowhunters of Ga. Dan's old club had $1000 some odd dollars left over which no one knew but him. Dan donated that money to the new TBG which we in turn were able to buy our first targets to have shoots to raise money. Dan planted the seed money unselfishly. TBG every Blue Moon year or so gives a Dan Quillian award. The award is self expanatory. TBG is aproaching it's 16th year.

Met Dan at an ASA shoot in Valdosta Ga. one time. He had a booth there and all of the compound shooters were passing him by. I walked up with my Black Widow in hand and it was like I'd run into an old friend. Prayers to his friends and family. Rest easy my friend.
God Bless. ~Rick

Nothing yet Joe, they are still getting family together. DD's sister in law will call me asap.I'll pass on. Most that knew Dan knew about his diabetes and how he fought that. hell i think he won. it didn't kill him! Dan use to give himself shock treatments in the foot with a police taser to jump start circulation..oh heck another story...But probably a donation to the diabetes foundation may be great way to remember him.

Thanks Joe, please pass it on when you hear.

I have fond memories of Mr. Quillian and the "old bowling alley", and of course tip my hat to him every year when my sportsman's license includes bowhunting...we simply wouldn't have a seperate season here in GA without him.

Yep, Dan overcame a lot of serious health issues to keep on keeping on. He had a bout with Lyme disease back when nobody knew what it was, had heart troubles, lost limbs to diabetes, hardly slowed down. i used to work the archery trade show with Dan and have a lot of memories of those trips---I'll never forget the time we were driving to Louisville and somewhere around Dunlap, TN he started looking around in the floor of the van.....

Dan also laid the foundation to what is the IBO rules for Traditional Longbow Class. It's been tweaked some but it was all Dan for years. He let the Old ASA (Valdosta) have it for not conforming. Remember a man named Wayne Pearson? Dan also went to Africa 25 years ago before practically anyone and bowhunted. He was shooting 160 gr snuffers when they were REAL snuffers.

I sent an arrow for his quiver. Someday, when I'll finaly meet him, around the big camp fire in the sky, we'll know each other by that arrow.
God Bless!

I met Dan while attending the University of Georgia in 1970-72. He was the real deal.
