Competitive ax-throwing is becoming increasingly popular in the United States, and Corey Deasy — owner of Lumberjaxes Axe Throwing Pittsburgh —  is one of many taking full advantage of this trend.

He’s opening up what he says is the largest ax-throwing facility in the country.

For those who have never tried it, Deasy offers a short pitch: “It’s like darts, but with axes.”

With more than 7,000 square feet of warehouse-style space, Luberjaxes in Millvale, Pennsylvania, has surpassed any other indoor facility of its kind in this country, Deasy said.

If safety is a concern, Deasy says his wife competed in an ax-throwing tournament while she was eight months pregnant. “She nearly won,” he added.

And this ax-throwing venue is not the only one of its kind. “They’re pretty much opening one or two a day across the country,” Deasy told Fox News.

Competitive ax-throwing facilities first opened up in Canada a decade ago, according to Lumberjaxes.

Many facilities are designed for first-timers and experienced ax-throwers alike, providing a training course at the beginning of the visit for those who need it.

“They’ll … teach you the proper technique,” Deasy said.
