What is axe throwing?

Axe Throwing is a target sport, similar to darts, and it’s on the rise. Players stand behind a foul line, approximately 12-14 feet from the target (depending on venue and organization), and try to throw their axe into the target. The targets are labeled like most target sports, with the highest points in the bullseye, and decreasing the further your axe lands from the center. At the end of the game, players add up their throws and the highest score wins. Every place has slightly varying rules, but those are the basics.  More than that, it's just plain fun!
