IRON COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A $15,000 donation from the National Rifle Association will be used to expand a state-run shooting range in Iron County.

Two grants from the NRA had been used to upgrade Wisconsin ranges at Yellowstone Lake State Park in Lafayette County and another in the Kettle Moraine State Forest previously. Those grants are matched 3 to 1 from federal funds.

The grant money comes from taxes paid by shooters and hunters on ammunition and equipment.

The funding announced this week will go to the Snaketrack Public Shooting Range in northern Wisconsin.
