Explanation:
Here are my sources:

"Résultat de notre concours Tir Nature qualificatif du Dimanche 9 Avril 2000."
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/pierre.latierre/nosconcours.htm

From the same site, English version:

" Result of Natural shooting contest qualifier for the Championships of France."
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/pierre.latierre/nosconcours-eng.htm

"Le tir instinctif est le tir sans viseur. On l'appelle aussi tir de chasse, ce qui n'est pas approprié du tout, car on peut très bien chasser à l'arc avec viseur, ou tirer sur cible sans viseur.

En fait, le tir instinctif, est le tir à l'arc tel qu'il était pratiqué par les premiers archers de la préhistoire ou les indiens. "
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/ribollet/instinct.htm

"instinctive shooting / The aiming style or technique, named by Howard Hill, which involves shooting without the aid of a sighting device (bowsight) or point-of-aim, but relying on hand to eye coordination by concentrating on the target, not the arrowhead. Usually instinctive shooters shoot off-the-shelf. Fred Asbell [1988, p.33] described it as "shooting a bow using only the abilities of eye, body coordination and instinctive memory."
