Review updated:

Has anyone started a class action suit to address this companies inexplicable refusal to honor their legal commitments regarding membership benefits? I am collecting names, membership numbers, and grievances for the purpose of initiating same and do not wish to duplicate efforts. I too have been the victim of this clubs illegal actions. Life member, paid in full at joining, and received the plaque, jacket, patch, and magazine subscription, all back in the mid 90's. I stopped receiving the magazine in 2000 and have had only brief unproductive responses from the company since then. After a nine year overseas deployment, i'm back and I have a long memory.

    My name is Rob Treiber, and I have been a Member of this club since the late 1970's when they first started with their memberships. I don't know my member number, as I have not received a magazine for over 20 years now, and my card vanished many years ago. After several years as member, I upgraded to to Life Trophy Member, costing over 5 bills, got the leather jacket, plaque, and was a tester to, for a couple years. Most of the stuff was junk, and I never managed to "win" any of their "free hunts" that were shown in a lot of their magazines, with pictures of the "trophy" bucks and hunters, and where they hunted; so, I wonder if this was not all just another tactic to lure others into the life membership as well.
    However, I would be very interested in a class action lawsuit against this group. I'm still living in Michigan, and I also thought a life membership meant that I was a member for my entire life. Not that it meant that they could make it into what they wanted, because we were not consulted on the possibilities of this ever being a possibility, period! Count me in. These liars need to be jailed. I can be reached at [email protected]

    I became a member in92, paid dues for a few years . then became aTrophy Life Member around 2000. they offered to put a portion of my past yearly dues toward the life membership. still cost me $320. got the vest, the gun case, the cleaning pad and kit. the last thing I got from them was a table magazine worthless as the paper it was printed on, and that was about 2001. Bill Miller and his father along with the other cronies that passed the editor in chief moniker back and forth are outright crooks. they spent all our money on their expensive hunting trips, here and abroad. i am really surprised that an attorney general of Minnesota hasn't put these jerks behind bars for fraud. count me in.

    Became Life Member in May 2009. Recieved magazines & stuff for while. Everything stopped suddenly. Few quarterly magazines, then nothing. Add me to list in lawsuits. My name is Charles Smith & I thought I was putting my membership into a wide- reaching north american club where members could invite each other to different states/ provinces to experience culture changes & make new friends.

    became a life member for almost 400 bucks about 7 years ago and got my initial welcome gifts. Knife and a rifle case. Applied for field tests every chance I could and nothing. As soon as they got my
    Money I all the sudden didn't matter and was not eligible for anything. Then wanted more money to do the things that were "promised". I can't even find a website for them anymore. Someone help.

    I became a life member back in the 90's. the only thing that I ever got from them is the leather jacket. In this day and age it would be nice to have a group that helps stand up for everyday hunter and join the fight that is taken place to remove our rights. I just did a search and I cant even find there web site on any search for them and I only find forms like this complaining about them. I am very disappointed in NAHC for not being an activist for all the people that gave them our hard earned money.

    My name is Larry Bruner, from Michigan. Like you other guys and gals, I became a life member in the early 90s. It’s been so long since I joined, and received anything from them, that I totally forgot about the club. I don’t remember how much I paid, but I do know it was several hundred dollars. I would be more than happy to help pay, to get a class action lawsuit started.

    I am Cheryl Zwicker, Life Member # [protected] since January 6th 2006. I guess I was 1 of those suckers also. I received maybe 4 magazines, and no letters or e-mails since 2007. What a scam. As a trust worthy hunter I expected a trusty worthwhile company like N.A.H.C. to honor it's commitment to me as a life member. I thought wrong. I wish I could sue them. I will not trust any other hunting memberships from any body. So I hope Scout doesn't try to get in touch with me. I am done!

    My Name is Scott Moran, Member since November 1986 and a Life Member since November 1989, and Trophy Life Member since May of 1991 Member # [protected]. I never received anything but a wooden plaque when I became a Life Member. My brother became a Life Member and received a jacket and table mat to clean his rifle on. My son became a Life Member and he received a vest and a mat to clean his rifle on. At the time I contacted the club, which you were still able to do then, and they told me that their was nothing they could do for me since I was already a Life Member. Since that time I have seen the benefits slowly dwindle down to nothing and now there isn't even a club anymore! I and my family have paid a lot of money into the organization and guaranteed that there would be benefits for my life time. Only now they are gone, that just doesn't seem right to me? How an organization can continue to collect money and make promises to get you to become a Life Member and in my case Trophy Life Member only to have that disappear without so much as a letter in the mail telling me such. I would be willing to join any lawsuit that is filed against either the original owner or current owner for wrongful termination of promised services. We paid our money and should have rights for that. I am no lawyer but I believe that is theft isn't it? We paid for a service and now we are no longer able to use or get the services we paid for. This is so wrong on too many fronts!

    Trophy Life Member #[protected]. I guess I was lucky to buy into this early. I received leather jacket, and many personalized address stickers. Once again the rich steal from the poor, is anyone amazed by this. To good to be true is what I said after sending first payment. I just hope they don't start managing my 401. Scam, Scam, Scam. And people are still joining ?

    I am a paid for Life Member of the North American Hunting Club and have been on the member rolls almost since the club's inception. It is simply another of a great many corporate ripoffs done under the name of supposed legality. The perpetrators (all of them) should be rounded up and jailed, pending the outcome of trials for fraud. I will readily join in a class action lawsuit, given that opportunity. R.

    I became a life member in July 2001. I had been a yearly member for a year or two. After joining "life member status" the magazine stopped in approximately a year, along with every thing else. I have called numerous times and get the runaround. I will receive one quarterly magazine, not monthly as stated in membership, and then nothing again. The quarterly magazine is almost all advertisements and very little substance. it was one of the main reasons I bought the life time membership. A complete and total fraud and I don't like being had. Please count me in on any action against them. I want a full refund.
    Sincerely,
    Michael Williams, Culpeper Virginia
