North American Hunting Club?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone participate in the North American Hunting Club? I got the letter (and free gift offer) in the mail last night, and I am wondering if it is legit, or if it is a scam. It looks like it's based out of Minnetonka, MN. The letter says that they send out free gear to hunters for them to try in the field and then report back how it performed...and then keep the gear for free.

I wanted to check with you guys to see if this was something worth while, or something that I'll just end up canceling down the road when I find out it's not worth it.

Thank you for your help!

Phunny, do a search in this section for North American Hunting Club, it was a topic about a month ago. I am a life member and don't have any real complaints. I have tested a knife, lantern, and a packable gun cleaning kit. THe magazine is good, but I don't feel like my money is going back into the woods. I am also a member of RMEF and feel that my money does a lot more for the outdoors and the outdoor enthusiasts. Just my opinion.

Thanks shiner! I tried doing a search before posting so that I wouldn't double up on a topic that has already been discussed, but I didn't see anything yet.

Is it really just a dollar a month for the NAHC? Or does it cost you more than that because you test the products?

That price sounds about right. For that price you get the magazine. You would be elligible to field test products as well. Just make sure what they send you is a field test item and not one that they are trying to get you to purchase. I do get mailings about every other week for some hutning product that they are trying to sell. But I've also field tested some nice items as well. I just renewed my membership last month. I feel its worth my money, at the very least you get a magazine to read.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
