    Traditional in the sense that the word is used now in terms of archery referes to the use of any bow other than a compound. What you're using ( you were the original poster in the above link, right? ) is no much differnt than some of the systems used back in the mid 60's when I first picked up a recurve, an era refered to as the Golden Age of Archery. As far as the oldest archery competition goes, I believe it was part of the ancient Olympic Games, but the event that you refered to is part of the modern Olympic Games, and as such would be predated by York rounds, a very popular contest in England during the 16th and 17th century, consisting of consisting of seventy-two arrows at 100 yards, forty-eight arrows at 80 yards, and twenty-four arrows at 6o yards, as described in Chapter II "Historical Sketch of the York Round" of Maurice and Will H. Thompson,'s book, How to train in Archery C 1879. If you're interested, you can find many more older archery books here.

    Elkslayer4x5 I agree and I learned about these methods in the Archers Digest in 1981 or so... I rediscovered that old book and decided that my new bow woule be a recurve... I was very much not aware if the passion of some barebow archers when it comes to defining traditional.

    Some of them are fanatics, thinking the traditional means shooting off the shelf only, minus sights, or really only how they have their bow set up, it's all tarditional. To me barebow means no sight, no matter if shooting off the shelf, thire nuckles or an elevated rest. Freestyle is what I call using a sight, of any kind. And that not even getting into stringwalking and face walking, which is also classified as barebow.

    I just want to enjoy shooting my bow and making ethical shots on animals I hunt. They deserve that much.

    And you should, you're still shooting traditional equipment, even though you have a sight in it. But by some club rules, you may not be able to compete in a traditonal 3D class. Because I use a slider sight, I have to compete in a differnt class than a 5 pin sight does.

    I wish it was this way...

    Traditional with sight
    Traditional without sight.
    Traditional magnification

    Compound with sight
    Compound without sight
    Compound magnification

    Just mix and match the stakes...
