The PDF files need to be converted to a dfx file. Then cleaned up cuz they ain't perfect. Trust me I just got done doing this. Plasma cutter and steel will set you back some BIG bucks. $-)

I printed the PDF files GTS had posted with the following printer Page Sizing & Handling settings:

Chicken: poster tile scale 200%, four 8.5x11 pages
Pig: poster tile scale 267%, eight 8.5x11 pages
Turkey: poster tile scale 267%, eight 8.5x11 pages
Ram: poster tile scale 400%, fifteen 8.5x11 pages

After slicing each page with a cutting board I taped the sections together.

I've posted this before but will repeat it again. Go to a engineering print shop. For a few bucks they will print out the pdf files to scale for you on a large scale printer. Any shop that does "blue prints" can do it. No muss no fuss.

Full scale Chicken & Ram painted on the backs of SR-1 & SR target paper are ready for practice at 50 & 200 yards respectively. These target stands have legs that will be attached later for placement at the range. The pig & turkey came out just as well on SR target paper.
