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.
