    Gracious... just saw him at the Mathews Show.

    Will be missed. Our best to his loved ones.

    One of my favorite hunting footage was from a good deal of years ago. Bill was bowhunting caribou.
    Just was such good footage and great shot.

    Met Bill back in 1988, we were debating about his article and even though we might have disagreeing views, I know him to be an articulate and concise speaker/writer as well as a great guy to chat with.

    I will miss him very much.

    Sad news indeed. I read of his death on Twitter the day after he passed.... the industry has lost a great man. He will be missed. Atleast it was peaceful and in his sleep. Rest in peace Bill
    An "archer" tries to see how far away he can get from his target and still connect. A "BOWHUNTER" tries to see how CLOSE he can get to his.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Bill took time out of many busy days to "discuss" this sport with me, thanks Bill.

    I met Bill at the traditional aychery rendezvous in the early 2000 season and he sold me the first serial #1 updated Fred Bear custom Kodiak take down bow that he and his team redesigned for more performance.I have cherished the bow since I recieved it from him and he was a nice guy and cheerful.He will be sadly missed. Sheri may the lord bless you and your family.

    Not to in any way detract from the sincere sentiment, but the date of the original post was December of 2010........well after the fact I am afraid.
