I think it's just you, Von. :) I know there are a few traditional guys on here, but I think they are probably looking to get some 'training wheels'.

You better believe im here! Lol!  Im a huge trad fan. I used to use wheels but gave it up when i found trad bows. I got em all Longbows, Recurves, & selfbows. Never looked back once I switched but i dont judge what others shoot. I love shooting with compound shooters who have never shot a trad bow. They cant believe I can hang right in there with em!! (Wake up call)

 I like to think i am,I haven't owned a wheel bow since 1990 and recurves and long bows are all I shoot with wood arrows,but there again the older i'm getting I don't like to throw stones because our hunting population is getting older and enough people don't like us just because we hunt, and I don't want to divide and separate ...We may need all hunters one of these days to defend our passion..

 Hi Eric

           I've not shot the Hoyt Buffalo, but know a few that have and they said nothing but good things about it. I have a Hoyt Excel 21"riser (matt black), with TradTech longbow Limbs. It works out cheaper than the Buffalo and is a really great set-up, super smooth, no stack and really quiet..... just a thought!!

I made a switch to traditional archery two years ago and have had great success with it. I dont really want to hunt with my compound anymore. I never thought there would be anything more fun than hunting with my compound until I killed my first deer with my recurve. I've managed to get all but three of my recurve kills on film. I'm having a blast with it. Can't wait for season to start!

 Seems like there are quite a few trad guys here! I am also a trad guy, I gave up the wheels after one season and made the switch. I couldn't be happier! I hunt with a Stalker Stickbows longbow.

Just thought I would chime in on this thread, started in 1986 with a Compound, but because it was a Glenn StCharles "Buckskin" bought from Northwest Archery, I was exposed to traditional archery by a legend. I soon figured out that I liked to carry a beautiful piece of wood more than a machined metal monstrosity.
Now it just feels natural, and I have more fun.
