Guide Review

Fetch It Does!
This modified wire whisk is the brainchild of Al McCloy, and it's a good one. Whatever inspired him to make the first Fetch It deserves some reverence -- this is ingenuity at its finest.

One boring afternoon during deer season, I tried it out. I fetched my cable and padlock (2 out of 2 times), a wool glove (1 out of 2), a bottle of doe pee (2 for 2), a camo headnet twice (once when hung up in a small tree!), a muzzleloader "speed loader" (2 out of 2), and a medium-sized Bison 2C flashlight. I got the light 3 out of 5 tries -- one miss due to a small tree.

Then I went after pine cones buried in pine needles. Four tries yielded three pine cones -- one of them was buried so deeply it took two tries to unearth it.

This is a great product, and I wish it were still being manufactured.
