The families of the victims in last Sunday's shooting spree in the Wisconsin woods will get some financial help.
A fund set up for the hunters who were killed or wounded raised more than 20-thousand-dollars in its first two days.
A fund organizer says the hunting group Safari Club International will match donations up to five-thousand dollars.
Donors are sporting blaze orange ribbons in memory of the hunters.
Several other groups have contacted the fund, saying they want to contribute. Among them: Gander Mountain stores, E-S-P-N television and the National Rifle Association.
Contributions will be used to help families cover medical and funeral expenses and perhaps to establish a memorial.
Donations may be sent to:
