I have a great way to retrieve items that have been dropped from the treestand. I picked up two of the polished metal robe hooks from Wal-Mart and fastened them together to make a treble hook. Here's what mine looks like. Let me know if you try this idea.

Very good thinking right there.
I actually BOUGHT one alot like that.
It is a big ole treble hook that isn't sharpened at all and came with like 30 foot of cord.
I have used it and it indeed is VERY handy and saves you alot of time going up and down the tree. \:\)

I cut two of the round tips off with bolt cutters. Now those two ends are sort of sharp and it grabs even better.

Bought something like that at WalMart a couple of years ago. I use the hook, but the string was too thin to grab a holt of.

I was at LBL last year and dropped my glove and I took an arrow tied it to my 550 pull up cord and after about ten minutes I did manage to fish up my glove it took awhile but it was intertaining I like your method better and will be adding one to my pack. Thanks for the Tip!

That's a fantastic idea! It reminds me of a trick I learned from an old friend and bowhunter in Illinois. He carried a half dozen large treble hooks in his pocket along with a small spool of 14lb. test fishing line. If he had a nearby limb that he couldn't reach to trim from his stand, he'd toss a treble hook out, snag the limb and tie it out of his way. I've used this trick several times over the past 10 years.

I have a big treble hook that has the barbs cut off. I have to keep some rubber over the points while it is my fanny pack. Works great.

I buy the largest treble hook that BPS have and cut off the barb and paint them orange & put reflective tape on them to keep from losing them and also to see that it is hooked to what I am pulling up.

The only modification you need to that is to install a strong magnet on the under side so that you can pick metal objects that the hook wont get

Yeah, the magnet would be a great addition but I'd want it to be removable... hmm...

I'll always drop something. Gloves, grunt call, hat, the lid to my water bottle, I can see where this would come in handy.

Looks good but will it pick up a cell phone. I dropped mine one time. Lucky for me no one called and it landed face up so I could use my optics to see what time it was.

My quiver somehow popped off my bow while pulling it up one time down at AEDC. I was too tired and hot to go down after it. Tied a bungee strap to the end of my haul line and fished it up. Took about 45 minutes to finally snag it. A large treble hook would have been much better.

I use a big treble hook.Drill out then shoved it in a wine cork !you wrap the hy test fishing line around the cork then duct tape in place!it is a nice small package.make sure you crush the barbs to keep from ripping your gear.works good for me!!!
