What about strong, mean, gusty, bitchy, twitchy winds that keep you bobbing and working the throttle on final to stay on a constant glidepath? That's where the wheel landing shines, and it actually gives you a little more control than a nosewheel airplane provides. As you ride down final adding half the gust factor to your normal speed, you level off as in the beginning of a flare, but hold the attitude there and let the airplane land on its main gear with the tail still up. If there is a crosswind you land on the upwind main wheel only. In either case the trick is to add forward stick pressure at the moment the wheel or wheels touch the runway. You can be pretty aggressive with the forward stick to the point of having a negative angle of attack, more so than with most tricycle gears, which keeps the wheels plastered on the runway no matter what. Some will disagree, but while in this position I retract whatever flaps I may have used to reduce as much as possible the remaining lift in the wing. If the wind is not too gusty, you can keep adding forward stick pressure to keep the tail up until it settles by itself as you slow, or you can relax the pressure and let the tail come down sooner, bringing the stick firmly all the way back and keeping it there as soon as the tailwheel touches. If the gusts are up and down, you can keep the tail up as long as you want, runway length permitting, by keeping the stick forward and adding a little throttle to keep the tail up. This way you can time when you want to bring the tail down as you wait for a lull. The thing to remember, though, is that the airplane is most vulnerable while the tail is coming down, so you must be quick with corrective rudder and differential braking as necessary during that period. It is amazing, though, how much wind a proficiently flown taildragger can handle. Light airplanes are not happy landing with a tailwind component. It feels unnatural, and it is. In a taildragger, forget about it, especially a quartering tailwind. Just go somewhere else, or ask for a different runway. If you must land with a tailwind for some compelling reason, keep the component under 5 knots, and make it a three point so that the tailwheel can do its part to help keep you straight.
