Making up for lost time, axe throwers adapt to the 'new norm'

After months of doing it on mobile, the axe-throwing community is back in the cages. Soon, there will be more places to get involved in a safe way.

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — While many other sporting events are getting canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there's one activity in particular that's getting back into the swing of things with relative ease: axe-throwing.

Ironside Axe Club in West Des Moines is one of several places to make the switch back to the cages, after they spent the last few months doing 'mobile axe.'

Ironside now has four locations in total, and is working to open a fifth at some point soon.
