    Anyone know anything about this? I've gotten several things in the mail from them and I've thought about it but I'm really not sure. Anyone here a member?

    Tried it a long time ago

    For my membership dues, I got the sticker for my truck window and constant reminders for re-upping my membership. Seems like they sent me a small packet of Eagle Claw fish hooks one time ( with a request for more money ), but I never could quite grasp why I needed to be a member.

    In the sign up package ( wait a minute, THAT'S where I got the window sticker ), they said I would get products to try ( maybe that's why some fish hooks ) but I really didn't see or get anything of value. Well, they sent me a small notepad once ( in another member ship drive ).

    I don't remember seeing them work against anti gun or anti hunting legislation, didn't get a magazine, didn't get any legislative warnings or action alerts.....hell, I don't remember getting anything from them except stickers, fish hooks, window decals and a note pad.

    You can check them out, your milage may vary, but I thought it was a waste of money.

    Kind of looks like a scam. If you look in the footer of their website they own like 6 various "clubs" ..

    I'm a Life Member and receive North American Hunter magazine every month. I have received free items to test ranging from a tree-stand to gun cleaning solvents and shotgun choke tube lube. It is a good club and they have monthly contests where firearms and everything to do with camping and hunting are raffled off. They have a member service that provides reduced rate hunting trips and reviews of hundreds of outfitters across the world. They have a top notch group of editors and contributors such as Chuck Adams, Ted Nugent, Ian McMurchy, Bob Robb, and others known to the bow and gun hunting community. They do product reviews for guns & optics, archery equipment, recreational vehicles, ATV's, etc. etc.. They have affiliations with the Rocky Mouintain Elk Foundation, Wildlife Forever, US Sportsmens Alliance, National Bowhunter Education Foundation, NAtional Wild Turkey Federation, Mule Deer Foundation, Hunting and Shooting Sports Heritage Fund, Congressional Sportsmens Foundation, Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, Tread Lightly, etc. etc. I've been a member for 10 years and have never had a complaint.

    I'll defer to RL357 Mag

    He has had a positive experience with them so you may want to shoot him a message or email for particulars. Last time I sent them money was in the early 1990's, so it seems things have changed. They still send me invitations to rejoin from time to time.

    Thank you, RL 357 Mag for your input!

    :D

    YW Allmons - I joined in '95 and have enjoyed it ever since - even without the free stuff..lol Their magazine is very informative and equally split between Archery and Firearms hunting - theiy're big into bird hunting and hunting dogs also. Life Membership was $350 and they included a nice leather bomber jacket with NAHC logo.

    Thanks for the response guys! I just wasn't sure about it so I thought I'd ask here. I'll give them a try and if I dont like it I can always quit. Thanks again!

    I used to be a member and they sent me all kinds of free stuff like fishing lures and I might have even got a knife, when I signed up I got stickers and a medallion or something

    I was a member for a few yrs.only reason I stopped was it was not my cup of tea.mostly about big game and trips I could not afford.but it is worth the mag.I am more a shooter and reloader than a hunter.and if you ask you get great goods to test.:rolleyes:;)

    It IS geared towards those with a passion for hunting. My passion is not as strong as it was when I joined, but the articles are enjoyable and the advice is good, particularly with respect to bow and gun tuning.

    I had started a Life Membership with them..... BIG MISTAKE!

    I was put on the disabled list because of a left shoulder injury, this caused me to lose my job and be put on Workers Comp.... now the NAHC has threatend me with civil collections, even though they were notified and refuse to put me on hold until I can get on my feet again.

    Screw em!
