Like you, I am new at instinctive shooting and traditional archery. I can absolutely say that I am far, far more accurate with my compound bow, specially if I start to pile any distance on.
I find that instinctive archery is challenging, one end I will put one in the bullseye and be thrilled because all I did was focus intently on it. My next arrow though i could be a foot away from an X or much more. The inconsistency makes it frustrating, aside from hitting bullseye's a lot of the satisfaction for me comes from using my dad's 50 year old Hoyt, being a part of traditional archery, doing it with my kids, going stump shooting, just simpler, less gear and stuff, also from a practical sense cheaper, so man, wishing you lots of fun out there with it, sounds like you are on a good path.
