GB,
slightly off topic, but I shoot traditional archery as well.
Stickbow, recurve, instinctive, gap shooting.

Going from precise bullseye shooting using visual clues to instinctive point shooting without sights was quite refreshing and challenging.
Got to where I could shoot a dozen arrows into a 4 inch groups at twenty yards pretty frequently. Taught me a lot about trusting your instincts. That's all you have to go by.
Now switching over to more combat shooting and practicing some close point shooting, and also using my focus on the target and sight alignment in peripheal vision, it has come full circle again!

An old iron sight bullseye shooter converted to instictive point shooting, imagine that! Some old dogs CAN learn new tricks.
