THROWING AXE


I LEARNED TO THROW AN AXE FROM A COUPLE OLD TIMERS AND THOUGHT I COULD USE SOME PRACTICE TO PERFECT MY STYLE AND ACCURACY. I HAD SEEN THEIR TARGETS MADE FROM SOFT PINE OR HEMLOCK. SO, HERE IS THE JOURNEY FOR MY OWN. FIRST STOP, MATT HOFER'S MILL.

throwing axe, the good thing is its easy to remove from the target. next "weapon" ?
An english longbow ? Have a try, it's amazing that intuitive shooting works so well - if you know which of your eyes is the dominant one. Would you double the chance you hit right with an 2 bladed axe ?

like the gänsfors trowing axe ?
