Lumberjacks were the first to participate in axe throwing as a competitive sport, according to history. After a long day of felling trees, the lumberjacks pitted their wits against one another by throwing their axes and seeing who could hit the bullseye with the greatest degree of accuracy.

The sport is becoming increasingly popular these days. Backyard axe throwing first gained popularity in 2006 with the founding of the Backyard Axe Throwing League, and it has continued to grow ever since.

The Axe Throwing Rules are as follows:

As with any sport, axe throwing has developed into a variety of leagues with varying rules, but they all have a few things in common: they are all competitive.

  • The board is constructed of wood. We utilize end grain wood at The Horse's Axe because it helps your axe cling better and bounce less when you swing it.
  • The objective is to hit the target as accurately as possible (like darts).
  • The targets used by the IATF (International Axe Throwing Federation, formerly known as the National Axe Throwing Federation) feature four zones: three main zones and one additional zone known as "the clutch." The majority of the blade sticks in the area where the majority of the points are awarded.
  • The targets for the WATL (World Axe Throwing League) are divided into five main zones and one additional zone. The line on which the blade makes contact is used to determine the score.
  • In most leagues, the throwing distance is roughly 12 feet, which allows the axe to rotate only once. However, the exact distance varies from league to league. The thrower must not step beyond the line; if he or she does, the thrower will receive no points for that throw.
  • Typically, events have a target available for practice throws, and athletes who practice on the competition target are disqualified from the event.
