Testing free Hunting equipment?

Iam curious as to how this works? I would also like to know what peoples opinions are that have done this? Do you keep the product? What are the pros and cons of doing this?

Testing free Hunting equipment?

I've received several things to test over the years from a hunting club/other site (NAHC). Most of it kind of dumb cheap stuff frankly, but a couple things weren't too bad, including a very nice hooded and insulated camo hunting jacket once... that I still use. 

Yes, I get to keep the products at no cost to me, and am required to write up a review of what I thought about it, pros and cons, etc. I have to re-apply each time to be a tester and that's about it. To me it is worth it, not a lot of effort required, but I don't expect to get something all the time or often either. Maybe one day I'll hit the jackpot and get a real winner article to test, like a gun or bow... keep dreaming, LOL.

you wouldnt be talking about

you wouldnt be talking about the "north american hunting club" would you? i had a post on here askin folks about it a while back and afew people told me i was cheese, but i figured what the heck and now i wish i had listend the stuff they send you to test out is cheap i get more useless junk mail then any thingthen they send me books and then send me a bill for them a month later or send them back. its all a bunch of b/s,the magizines arent even worth reading. if your getting stuff in the mail from these guys telling you to "test products and keep them" just throw it away!!!!!   i have a bottle of whitetail doe sent and i dont even have whitetails in my state and they let me trg out a 1 oz bottle of gunn oil. the best thing i  got out of it was a few stickers for my son.

How does one get hooked up with that? I would love to test free stuff whether good or bad...

Well for me, my wife bought me a membership in the North American Hunting Club (NAHC) about 20 years ago or so for my birthday or something, and I just signed up for it there. I'm not sure where else you can?
