Running Boar will test your hunting skill by having to shoot at a Running Boar target which moves between two barricades for 60 feet and is exposed for four seconds. At the 50 yard line the shooter will stand with rifle in ready position—the boar will appear from behind a barricade, and travel for 60 feet. The shooter will shoulder his/her rifle establish proper lead and fire one shot at the boar before it disappears behind the other barricade. The shooter will fire 10 shots at the Running Boar as it moves from right to left direction and fire 10 shots at the Running Boar as it moves from left to right direction. Total of 20 shots fired maximum possible score is 200-20X. High scoring shooter will have the mythical title of “Schutzenkoenig” (King Of The Marksman) bestowed upon him/her.
