Cut the quill in half with the wire cutter, then pull with the pliers. The quill will come right out.
I've heard this before so I ran it by my vet in case I ever have to deal with the situation. My vet is an avid hunter and may even be an occassional poster on this forum. He said that there is nothing to this and the best plan is to simply pull them out. Cutting them first has no effect other than shortening the quill.
