Growing up in rural Connecticut there isn’t a whole lot to do. What started as a fun evening out with friends throwing axes, quickly turned into a passion and drive that brought Oxford Axe Throwing to fruition. Three friends, old and new, got together and began something to bring to our home in Oxford and the surrounding area.
They got to work crafting what they only had as a vision in their minds. Building targets by hand and throwing axes with family and friends, they began to see the purpose of their mission. A place for people to congregate. A community of camaraderie and entertainment. Giving back to the oxford community with service and gratitude.

Badass jungle hunter who is most famous for killing lions with his bare hands, Steve gave up hunting wildlife after he choked a few cougars. He currently gets his kicks bench pressing in excess of 500 pounds. Ladies can’t seem to keep their hands off of him, mostly because of his amazing nunchuck game.

He would have written more, but had a lion head he wanted to get mounted on the wall before the drinks wore off. Thanks for reading!
