This past weekend after the Finale for the hit show ‘The Walking Dead‘, on the talk show ‘Talking Dead” Daryl Dixon revealed to the audience and viewers at home his zombie killing crossbows he has been using throughout the show to kill zombies. The crossbow he used for most of the show was the Horton Scout 125 HD. This entry level crossbow is used by Daryl Dixon through out the majority of the show. Later in the show he uses a different crossbow. Daryl revealed this crossbow was his Stryker Strykezone 380, a beast of a crossbow! In Season 3, Episode 12 ‘Clear’, a Stryker Strykezone 380 crossbow was taken from Morgan’s safe house by Michonne. Later on in Season 3 Episode 13 “Arrow on the Doorpost”, Daryl replaces his Horton Scout 125 HD with the Stryker Strykezone 380 Crossbow.
These weapons are excellent for both hunting and taking down Walkers without attracting too much attention. With re-usable ammunition it’s less of a waste on resources than firearms. It’s quiet enough that I could bring down dozens of squirrels and even a deer without attracting the attention of the Walkers.
