The term used losely, "normally" refers to those using either long bow or recurve, with typically no aids in drawing or aiming.

Meaning, a bow and an arrow. No release, no sights, no fancy drop away rests, etc...

I can be taken a step further by true traditionalists who physically make their own bows, arrows; from shaft, to feathers, to broadheads.

I am both "hi-tech" and "traditional". I shoot both a decked out solo-camed bow with all the dressings, release aids, etc.. and I shoot a recurve instictively with fingers. All in what I feel like hunting with that day....both two different styles of shooting.

Of course, this description is all from my point of view of what Traditional Archery means.

Perfect Practice Makes Perfect
