What is axe throwing?
Think darts, but with axes.
Pretty straight forward, right?
Axe throwing has been traced back to the stone ages, and has been recognized as a safe and fun activity for adults of all ages. Never thrown an axe before? Our axe coaches will guide you through safety and throwing technique and set you up for some friendly competition with your friends. Enjoy a beer during your session, and order in some food of your choice from one of our preferred restaurants.
ABOUT THE THROWING POST
Opening summer 2019, The Throwing Post brings recreational axe throwing to the Iowa Great Lakes community.
We are a family owned and operated business, nestled in with some other local favorites between West Lake Okoboji and Highway 71.
Come throw some axes with us and grab a beer while you’re here!
Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome based on availability.

Grip axe with one or two hands towards bottom of the handle. Step one foot forward.
Carefully bring axe back, overhead. Make sure the axe blade is straight.
Throw axe forward, releasing while arms are extended towards target.
