Sad if this is true. I only got to share life/camp with Bowdoc for a week or so on Bear Quest 10. He lit up a room with wit, humor, and a contagious spirit. A tender & deep hearted man that I got to enjoy in a group and one-on-one setting. We met with a smile/welcome and handshake. Left with a strong hug and a friendship... May it not be so, but either way I'm thinking of Him, and praying.... [pray]

He literally Cried when I saw him again he was so happy to be reunited with people... One of my favorite pics of BowDoc....
Rest in peace Brother

Got the call earlier today that Bowdoc had passed away. Pretty much ruined the whole day. I've known Donny for a long time and spent the last 8 years sharing a bear camp with him. The archery world lost a great craftsman and one of the most extensive sources of archery knowledge I've ever known and I lost a great friend. Proud to call him friend and even prouder to have known him. Rest In Peace little buddy, I know that you and Linda are together again. Say hi to Glenn for me. I know y'all are already sitting around the big campfire. You will be greatly missed.

If this is so I am deeply saddened. Although rough around the edges he was a wealth of Traditional knowledge and a pleasure to talk to one on one. First met him on Bear Quest #9 and he talked me into getting a Bear T/D......I now have 4 of them. I helped him the kitchen one evening and the next night he said....."you cook tonight, I'm going hunting" and I did. [pray]

Very sad. I spent a week with him at bear quest 11. He had a big personality and could entertain the room for hours with his knowledge of Archery and his wit. I almost didn't make it that week because of personal reasons but boy am I glad I did because I would have missed out on meeting one of the true contributors to our sport.

Rest In Peace my friend.

Gary Hall called me as I was getting home from work tonight to give me the sad news.

I got to meet Bowdoc during Bear Quest 10. I'll never forget him and how passionate he was about bear hunting. I'm glad I had the chance to spend some time with him and was really looking forward to seeing him again next June. Sad.

I'd say rest well Bowdoc, but he's probably busy refinishing a bow for Saint Sebastian.
