After six seasons all fans of The Walking Dead are aware of how adept Daryl Dixon is at using a crossbow. There have been many times when all hope has looked lost for a character, only an arrow to whiz past and satisfactorily stick itself directly into the head of a hungry walker at the very last second. But, as Conan discovered, actor Norman Reedus wasn't always so good at wielding a crossbow.
Way back in 2013, Conan 'uncovered' an early crossbow training video of Norman as he learned the ropes of using a crossbow. Let's just say, he wasn't quite a natural....
First he just throws the whole thing
Then he fails to use proper crossbow safety
Then he just decided to use the crossbow as some sort bludgeoning device
So, in the end, Reedus just opts for the drop kick
Oh, Norman Reedus how we love you (and thank goodness you improved your aim!)
The Walking Dead is currently on midseason hiatus, but returns to AMC on February 14th with episode 9, directed by executive producer and zombie make-up master, Greg Nicotero.
