    How come they grow so big?

    "Over 1,800 lb. wild boar shot and killed in Potosi , Missouri near the
    county airport, Hwy 8 east and near the community of Mineral Point."

    Any comments Muir?

    I know what you mean ref real, some of these forwarded emails are anything but.

    Further text that goes with the story...

    "Cute little Missouri pig ... that was killed in the town of Potosi, Mo.
    We call them Piney Wood Rooter's. There was a documentary on about
    a month ago about these PIGS growing up rapidly in the US . They're all
    over Georgia, Alabama , Arkansas , Missouri , Florida and other states.
    Did you ever wonder what happens to those people that just leave home
    and disappear, BUT their car is found out on a dirt road?! Between
    Bigfoot and these monsters, I think we know!!! This one was killed by a
    Medical Radiology worker... What would you do if this beast was coming
    at you? Run for dear life? Climb a tree? Or simply get run over!!!
    Yep......only in Missouri ! We were told to stand still because their eye
    sight is poor. By standing still they probably would not see you and
    walk right on by. And, NO you can't outrun them!!!"

    You dont need to out run the pig just be faster than the chap thats with you

    A nice safe pig pen somewhere and half a hundred-weight of maize every day for three or four years would be the logical explanation.....

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    If it is real, I wonder if a .30 Cal would have been upto the job, .338 Lapua Mag for me I thinks.

    Again if it is real, $1 per Lb would make a nice little return at the dealer.....Would you tell the Mrs?

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Exactly !
    A short focal length, wide-angle lense has been used.
    That is why long focal length ,`portrait lenses` are used to focus on faces otherwise the person could have a nose like a parrots beak.
    Trophies always look larger if you sit behind them !
