It may help, but it is not a requirement.  Throwing an axe is more technique than strength. That being said you have to be able and willing to throw a 1.5 to 2 pound axe over your head.  

Yes. Our main concern is your safety and fun. Our coaches and staff are educated and trained to provide a safe axe throwing experience. But it is a team effort between staff and throwers.

All throwers:

  • Must be sober and aware
  • Listen to coaches and staff! Failure to do so will result in a quick end to your axe throwing experience without refund.

We do not allow any outside food or beverage unless arranged previously for a private event.  We do have snacks and beverages for sale if you get parched or need a quick bite.

We recommend flannel.  If that’s not your bag, just wear something comfortable. This is a slightly athletic activity so dress comfy.  Also you must wear closed toed shoes to participate.

Absolutely! Just make sure you tag us on social media. #northernaxes.

Surprisingly, Axe Masters are human and humans like tips.  So, if you feel obliged to show some financial love toward them, they would be eternally grateful.

Currently we are accepting credit and debit cards through our booking system at

At this time we are not accepting cash.

At this time we are not licensed for alcohol. We would prefer everyone in their right mind before they pick up and throw a sharp object.  So come throw then hit the sauce somewhere else.

Absolutely!  We love parties!  Contact us via email at or give us a call at (815) 991-9181 to work out the details.  And no confetti unless you bring a vacuum.

We allow throwers from axe 10 and up.  Any participant under the age of 18 requires the presence of a parent or guardian.
