Excellent question.
First, if you go the traditional route, you will need to dedicate time and effort to your shooting. There are several different aiming methods and generally it takes some time to figure what works for you. No real shortcuts.

Compound route is the quicker and easier way. Even it requires good shooting form and consistency. One or two good lessons will have a person shooting well, provided that person has the proper setup.

I've been shooting the traditional route for over 20 years now and still learning from shooting mistakes.

I don't know of any traditional classes in the area. Finding someone in your area that shoots traditional that is willing to share their knowledge will be your best starting point.

If you go the traditional route, look up “the push” on YouTube. Invaluable information for a new shooter.
