How It All Began


Stuart and Kelly Josberger, along with their friends Mark and Trish Oliphant, had a casual backyard barbecue one night after a sail on the Barnegat Bay. While the girls were preparing dinner, the boys were out back building a fire in the chiminea. . Chopping wood for the fire, led to the creation of an impromptu game of throwing the axe to a makeshift bullseye on some log rounds from a tree…

What We’re All About…


STUMPY’S Hatchet House offers an alternative form of recreation. Primitive and organic, this sport suits those who love adventure, those who seek a release. Get back to the basics with hatchet throwing.

What should I wear?

Be comfortable – it’s a sporting event!

During the warmer months, we recommend dressing in loose, cool clothing. Chill in the air? We do keep it cool, so a flannel, sweater, or sweatshirt is a good idea.

For safety purposes, we don’t allow open-toe shoes or sandals

How long does it take?

Once training is complete, you’re off to the pits! Depending on your group’s reservation time slot- play time runs for 1 hour or 2 hours

What should I bring?

Other than bringing your game face, you really don’t need anything. But if you are interested in bringing your own beverages (rhyming with schweer and schwine), we have all the goods here to make your social throwdown fun, comfortable, and enjoyable! (We’re also cool with you bringing your own snacks.)

How to Score a Throwdown

standard scoring & rules


Each person throws, recording the points from each round (see point values image). First person to 21 points wins!

Looking to change it up? See who can score the lowest, reverse the points from the center out, making the bulls eye 1 point & the outer ring 5 points!

S.T.U.M.P… And Sometimes Y


Each ring of the target stands for a letter and the goal of the game is to spell out the word STUMP or STUMPY.  To begin, each player takes a turn at throwing trying to spell out STUMP or STUMPY. Variations include completing the word out of order; Spelling it in order, or even backwards!

S.T.U.M.P (Y) Spelling System


S

The first black ring

T

The first natural ring

U

The outer black ring

M

The second black ring

P

BULLSEYE!

Y

All the outer red dots count for Y

Around the World


Hit a bulls eye to start your way around the target. Next, hit each of the outer red dots, starting with the top left, going clockwise. After each of the red dots have been hit, a final bulls eye wins the game!
