The William Tell trick shot is possibly the most famous in archery history, and Cam Hanes does it justice in this slow motion video.

Whether you know it by name or not, you have heard of the William Tell trick shot. Step one, place an apple on a willing volunteer’s head; Step two, shoot it off with an arrow. It’s one of the most referenced, and thankfully, one of the least attempted archery trick shots out there.

While doing it with a manniquin head instead of a live volunteer does take a lot of the excitment out of the trick, it is a great way to show what everyone fears most during this trick (Cam’s first shot), as well as a perfect execution of the shot.
