As in harder to aim and successfully hit a target.
Well, it's harder to hit a spot at a fixed distance with a bow with no sight than a modern bow with a site, stabilisers etc. BUT, modern target bows are not much use at shooting at targets at unknown ranges on a battlefield or in a forest.
Really it just comes down to the different between sighted shooting and instinctive shooting. Like shooting with a sniper rifle or speed shooting with a revolver. One is good for one thing, the other is good for another.
I must say though, people who aren't very good with a modern sighted bow can learn to be quite good - people who are crap at instinctive shooting will never be very good..
