Tomahawk Throwing: The New Backyard Sport

Tomahawk and knife throwing is a growing sport. So much so, many people have begun to set up throwing ranges in their back yard to go along with their BBQ.

How to Throw a Hawk:



Log rounds are the best targets to throw at, especially thicker ones. When one side is too chopped up, you can always turn the log around and use the other side, or cut off a few inches. A standard target is 16″ so it’s recommended that you get a log which is at least 20″ in diameter.

Softer woods are highly recommended because the hard ones will just let the hawk bounce off from it. You can choose from any of these wood types:

– Sycamore
– Tulip Poplar
– Cottonwood
– Hackberry
– Ash (hard wood)
– Sassafras (hard wood)
– Beech (hard wood)
