I completely understand the feeling! I tried a compound bow for a little while, just to see what it felt like, but, even though I could probably walk around for hours with the thing at full draw, since I am so used to the stacking my longbow gives me, I just could not stand the sights sitting in front of me where I would expect the arrow to go... I shoot by instinct, and the sights literally threw me off so much that when I picked up my longbow again, I had to re-learn how to judge distances without the visual reference again. (Actually a lot harder than it sounds, and for awhile I was thinking about giving up archery hunting altogether...)
If you value your reflexes, do not ever try a compound bow. I cannot stress that enough, because even now, I have to take a second or two longer to figure out where my arrow will end up, and I can tell you that it has cost me at least two big game hunts where I could have made it down the mountain with something.
