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.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
