North American Hunting Club / magazines, lifetime subscriptions?

North american hunting club:
Gentlemen. I have been a new three year, paid up member now, for about three months, and I am still waiting to receive the three free gifts that I was promised, when I joined the nahc. Also, I continue to receive membership renewal offers for 2 or 3 year periods, which I feel are very premature? Yesterday, I received a lifetime membership offer, supposedly, for free, along with an embroidered, lifetime membership decal. I feel like I am being rushed into something that I am getting more and more skeptical about, by the day. If I am not going to receive my three free gifts for my initially joining the nahc, I would appreciate it very much if you would cancel my membership, and refund the $36.00 credit card payment that I paid to join, a couple of months back. I am beginning to get a very uncomfortable feeling about having joined the nahc. I would appreciate it very much if you would take appropriate action on my request. I have the impression that the nahc is only interested in my money, and money alone. Please respond to me as soon as possible.
Sincerely yours, a very disgruntled new member,

Paul d. Lyon

    I have to agree with you. We have been getting the same collection letters. If you contact RMCA about it they cant do anything they want the money. Tell you to contact North America Hunting Club Mag. to have them remove it. So you call them and guess what they have no record of the lifetime membership. You end up going nuts. So good luck on getting it removed.

    I have also recieved notification of passed due meber due in the amount of $341.00 from the debt collectors. I'm upset about it. I want to know how best to get out of it, hopefully with out buying into more of it.

    It's been over a week since I emailed my complaint memo in, (see it above, about not receiving my three promised free gifts, for a new 3-year subscription), and I still have not found an email address for the North American Hunting Club, where I can, supposedly, get in contact with their customer service department? How do they get away with these scams, is what I would like to know? I guess my next step will be to contact the Better Business Bureau, but I'm willing to bet that that will not help me get my new member subscription fee of $36.00 refunded and simultaneously cancelling my NAHC Membership...

    I Just so happened to get our latest billing in the mail. This is the information on it. I have not tried any of this, as of yet, but I'll at least post the info. If you do find that it is a "real" person, who can "speak clearly" and "really does help" yahoo... Best of luck... I am looking forward to reading your next input.

    NAHC is a acredited compay with the BBB. If you have a problem call the 800 # and let them know, also as far as promised free gifts I have found that is all people see. Everyone seems to miss nest to the astrisk that say if you pay today. certain gifts or 1st time field test offers are not good on a payment plan and it clearly says so, and even if it is in the fine print who care that is your fault for not reading it, do you buy a car without reading the fine print. Actually you probably do if you dont take the time to read it on something like a NAHC membership.
    It is not their fault our obligation to make good with anyone because they didnt read the offer thuroughly. I was in the military two different branches so for those who have also been in, you should know enough to read every last word on any form you send in for membership or sign for membership to anything.
    I can not express this enough read read read every last word and understand it. Dont blame NAHC or north american membership group because you didnt do just that.

    North American hunting club is an absolute joke ive been a member for 2 years and my father has been a member for over 20 and we have yet to receive anything but Chinese made garbage wheres my bow or gun to field test further more wheres my dads ### im done with there lies and cheap ### gifts which not to mention never even worked from the package. But you look in the magazines and the people who do get guns or bows are people with a lot of money so NAHC you can kiss my ### and someone needs to take a stand, to this nonsense and where does our lifetime membership or just our regular dues go towards? I know it lines there pockets surely not ours. Please do not waste your money on this scamming organization.

    I joined NAHC in July of 1997 as a Life Member.Still have my card, plaque and jacket. I stopped receiving my magazine in 1999 and couldn't get in touch with anyone. I recently tried once again to contact them with absolutely no luck. They scammed me back then just as they're scamming people now. If anyone is reading this, don't waste your time with this so called "club".
    Here's a list of what was promised me. (listed on the back of my membership card):
    * This card designates the member whose name appears above as a Life Member of the North American Hunting Club and is entitled to all privileges and benefits of membership --
    * North American Hunter magazine with Keeping Track newsletter
    * Free Gear and Gun Give-Aways
    * Free field testing opportunities and reports
    * Eligibility to win free hunting trips
    * Rating service on guides and outfitters
    * And much, much more
    North American Hunting Club * P.O. Box 3401 * Minnetonka, MN 55343

    Right !! I paid for the plastic card, the $2 wood plaque, the imitation leather jacket and 2 years of the magazine. I was then ceremoniousely dropped on my ear.

    hello NAHC well now I'm here to let you know I now feel that I feel your company is a big money making scam that offered big fancy bells and whistles and left me with some low grade junk that I could buy at any one of the stores that sell any kind of sporting goods and I could expect to get what I pay for instead of some over rated junk that is made by under paid labor in some third world country .
    So thanks for taking my hard earned money and leaving me with a poor opinion of you and other companies that may or may not deserve it.

    I find it funny that everyone complains without looking into things. First off, like it was said earlier, you have to read the fine print of everything. If you are not getting what you thought, it is probably because you didn't do what you were supposed to. Secondly, if you would take the time to keep up to date with the organization, you would know that you have to register on their website to be able to test things. I know that wasn't in the original agreement, but their new system actually allows users to register for different items to test, and it does work. I personally have received several quality (and costly) test items. After testing, you have to go online and do the product review, or you will not get anything else to test. It really is a simple system. Educate yourselves.

    I am a life member of NAHC since 1985. The field testing is no more. forget about the magazine. It was monthly then quarterly now they don't offer it anymore. It is time for a class action lawsuit. Everything they said when joining has been taken away. I'm sorry to say that I am a member to NAHC. What a joke it turned out to be.

    To all. Both the North American Hunting Club and the North American Fishing Club have changed their website. They can both be located at I recently experienced some of the same subscription issues and such. After finding the "NEW" website, I was able to gain access to both my North American Hunting Club and the North American Fishing Club accounts / information and update them as needed. All the new "Club contact information" is available there as well. I hope this helps and maybe some or all of you will be able to get some sense of satisfaction from these folks in one way or the other.

    I have been a member since 2003 and I to have been s_t on by this company. every thing I was promised and paid for has just been taken away. I know to type in caps means you a yelling well yes I am. this was an contract that I agreed to and for which nahc took my money and agreed to provide. since nahc has decided to terminate the agreement for which I signed and entered I expect a full refund from nahc. I would be happy to talk to anyone from nahc on a way to resolve this issue (803-788-0474). if nothing happens I to thank it is time for a class action lawsuit and also maybe the news people (like fox news) would be interested in talking to the member who have bee scammed.
