There are those on this site that can answer to this better than I can but I will say that the practice of form plays an important role in ones accuracy with traditional equipment. That is drawing and anchoring the same each time and concentrating on a spot on the intended target. Maintaining that form and concentration will result in the arrow consistently going where you are looking. After this is realized it only takes minor adjustments to form to make the arrow hit the target.
Having someone to show you would be great. I learned by trail and error lacking a suitable mentor. Start at 10 yards and work your way out. Shoot at 10 yards for a few days before moving farther out. Good luck and good shooting.
