Whether you are a beginner or an expert, axe throwing is a great activity for the whole family!
Once you start throwing we promise you won’t want to stop! If you’d like to participate in this activity stop by our lodge and we’d be happy to accommodate you.
Tips to throwing an axe:
• You’ll stand 15’ from the target.
• Using a two handed grip, bring the axe over your head and lean back.
• Let your body follow as your swing the axe forward. Once your arms are just past the top of your head, release the axe!
• Don’t flick your wrists, as this will cause an over rotation of the axe, and it won’t stick in the wood.
