• We’re talking about the most Canadian of pastimes, the farm-favorite — axe throwing. A staple of all lumberjack competitions for years, axe throwing is finally hitting the mainstream in a big way.

    You no longer have to drive to a friend’s farm or find a big backyard with some tree stumps for targets. Instead, there’s been an explosion of interest in axe throwing in cities across the country and abroad.

    What makes axe throwing so darn fun and entertaining? Well, for one, it offers up a completely unique environment and experience, combining the thrills of target shooting with the competitiveness of any team sport.

    Axe throwing is also part of a growing trend of unique, out-of-the-box, stress relieving activities. It also provides a great sense of satisfaction once you actually manage to hit the target with a great sounding thud.
