Have you ever watched Saturday afternoon sports and seen those logging championships where the guys chop, saw, climb, and try to knock one another off a log floating on the water? Scheer’s Lumberjack is a longstanding attraction at Hayward, Wisconsin. It is at Scheer’s stadium in Hayward, where the championships are held.
Scheer’s has another lumberjack arena just north of Pequot Lakes. Shows are held afternoons and evenings most days each week.
You’ll experience some impressive displays of strength and balance as you watch the friendly competition between two guys as they chop, climb 50 feet up a pole, and show off their chainsaw and hand saw skills. The highlight is the water portion of the show where they "run the line"—try to run across a straight line of five logs. They also balance on a log, trying to "spin" the other guy off—true log rolling. Both guys get plenty wet, and kids love the personalities and humor.
