USA Archery level 2 instructor certification. I am patient in coaching everything from traditional archery to axe throwing. I have a range of instructor experience from teaching people who have never thrown an axe to advanced throwers. I have been doing axe throwing for over 3 years now. Axe throwing may be intimidating for beginners due to equipment costs and safety requirements. However I am dedicated to lowering the barriers for entry into the sport of axe throwing and providing travelers access to experience something that may not be available back home.

The place we will visit is occupied by a variety of Lake Tahoe's wild life. You will often hear the sound of birds calling. Mountain Chickadees, Steller’s Jay's and Red Robins. Towering old trees such as Jeffrey pines, Sugar Pines , and Quaking Aspen are semi surrounded by growing tussock grasses and fresh Mountain air.
