Does anybody know what this really is? I received a packet of information asking me if I wanted to test equipment and then be able to keep it for free. Sounds like something dad told me about things that sound too good to be true. Anyone tried it? Who are they?

I'm sure it's just like the North American Fishing and North American Craftsman. I signed up for one and never saw a thing.

I am actually a life member of the hunting club. It was cheap to do so I had money and did it. You actually do get to test stuff and keep it but you have to call and request to be put on the list for it and then when you are do you have to fill out a small report on the likes and dislikes about it. I have gotten flashlights, hunting socks, boot covers, and even a gun sling.

I am a member of North American Hunting Club too. So far no testing, but that was not really why I joined. They almost seem more like a book club, with all the books they send me, but that is ok, becuase all my hunting books are getting old.

I will try it for the year, and see about next year.

Cheap to join, and they send you some good offers.

I had the books coming to my house also and I just asked them to take me off the list for the books. They do have good info and articles in the mag for reading.

I am a life member also. DId not like the books coming all the time, so was taken off the list. I have never tested products, but have not asked to either. I have ordered some pretty nice stuff through them [knives,gloves ect.]

Also a life member, have tested a few things for free. Some scent, have some insect repellent I'm supposed to go pickup to test. The items won't be guns or anything that costs much. You'll get plenty of offers for free previews of gear that you can then buy, like backpacks, clothing, that type of thing. I tried one, didn't care for it & sent it back, no hassle.

I don't do any testing or buy anything thru them. I stay a member because I like the magazine.

i had gotten some of the scent stuff, but got more food seasoning to "test" some of them were pretty good, but i got out of that once they started sending the books as well, i kept the first one or two, but then it got a little excessive, it wasn't a problem getting taken off this list though, when ya send it back, ya check the box saying ya dont want them anymore and thats the end of it, the magazines keep coming.

Just got a book today.... Man they pepper you with stuff. I would actually like a few new hunting book, but these guys look like they are hunting in late 80's or mid 90's. All their hunting gear looks old, and dated. And, they want 27 bucks for this book, when I can get more useful information on this site on deer hunting, archery, or heck making salsa.

I am going to start sending these books back.

I also received a pocket knife, to test. Seem decent quality, but I doubt it will hold an edge long.

Same here, life member with North American Hunting Club. The magazine is good, but I just got a calendar in the mail yesterday ($20 something dollars if I want to keep it). I've tested a couple knives, scent stuff and a battery powered LED collapsable lantern. The lantern was actually decent and I use it elk hunting for the 12x12 tent. Would I join again if I had the chance........not sure....

I joined because I thought it sounded great, but won't do it again. I liked the first book, then on the 2nd told them to take me off the list, they didn't. Once the books got done, here come the DVD's. They never said to test stuff you have to call, in fact I already filled out a form. I haven't been sent anything to be tested. Kind of a money sucking scam I think.

Yeah, I did not like the 2nd book either. Very old looking photos, and old gear. They were talking about calling the State office to purchase aerial photography!!!! Hello....can you say google map?

I am not going to renew my membership. I would rather give my money towards the NRA, and receive nothing.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
