Whats the worst thing you ever dropped while up in a treestand? Your bow? A camcorder? Your release and then had a buck come running it? Lets hear it...

I have actually dropped my bow out of the tree. When your up in the air 20 feet that is not a good thing at all.

It would either be an quiver full of arrows. I was hunting public land and I was running pretty late. I was using my climber and I got up to where I wanted to be and started to pull up my bow. I hooked it up upside down and when I did it I knew better but I was rushing and didn't change it before climbing the tree. About 2/3 of the way up the arrows got hung up in some limbs and in frustration I forced it through and all but 1 arrow fell out. Being in a climber and it getting late I didn't go retrieve them. About 45 minutes later a nice doe came in and stopped at 20 yards. Well I blew the shot, the bottom cam hit the stand throwing my arrow off course enough to shoot well below her. She ran in a small circle and ended up right back where she was standing when I shot. No more arrows! Other than that I haven't dropped much out of the stand other than gloves, handwarmers and maybe some snacks.

The ole bow! I was soo mad I just packed up and left didn't want to take a chance of having a good deer come in and blowing the shot cause my bow was messed up. Good thing cause when I got back and drew the bow WHACK string snapped, not afun feeling. I hit myself in the nose soo hard I thought Mike Tyson hit me.

the most costly was a camcorder. I actually dropped it twice, the first time I wasn't very high (15-20') and it had a somewhat soft landing going down a hemlock tree. The second time was right after I shot my best buck to date at the time. Needless to say I was excited, packed up all my gear and when I went to lower it the pack with the cam wasn't looped on the string. Never worked since. Besides that my release and arrows.

Could you at least get the footage off of it of you shooting the buck?

I didn't have one of them camera arms. When the bucks started coming into the plot I set the cam down. Wish I had got footage as there were 4 bucks already feeding at the time and he walked in like he was king and posed for the shot.

Lets see, I dropped myself from 21 feet up, that was probably the worst.

I dropped an oregonzach once, sucked. But in hunting I'd say my arrows, flashlight and release. I dropped part of my camera arm once which ended filming that night

I don't mind hunting from the ground. Can be really fun and challanging but man do I love being 25 feet up a tree

I guess the worst thing I ever dropped was my Rangefinder. Happened this past year. Had the strap over my neck and over my headcover. Just before I was ready to start to climb down I pulled my headcover off and heard a crash. When I pulled the headcover off the strap came with it and bye bye rangefinder. Luckily, it survived the fall and has no ill effects...

Dropped a good flashlight at the begining of the season and could not find the damn thing and one day, I put a buddy of mine up in this stand and he smacks a buck and calls me to let me know, when I get there to help him out at 5oclock pm I walk in and he says is this light yours and I smile and say where the hell you find it? It was 16 feet away from the tree!!! Still worked What a Face

The worst thing I have ever dropped was myself as the treestand slide back down the tree about 18ft. It had rained the night before and the trees were wet. It was one of those calm mornings where all you hear is the rain dripping off the leaves and your thinking to yourself this is going to be a good morning. At the time I had a loggy. I got up to the level I needed to be and began setting the stand. Took the hand climber and placed it out of my way. After raising the seat into place I went to throw the rope around the tree and as I did my weight shifted and down we came. I just hugged the tree and road it out. The stand got hung up about 5ft above the ground. You guessed it the hand climber was still up in the tree. I bear hugged the tree and by the time I got set up I was drenched with water from the tree and sweat from working my butt off getting back up the tree. Ended up not seeing anything but my buddy I went with smoked a doe. Still had a great time and it could have easily turned out different.

That's funny you say that. I've slid down a wet trees with a loggy also. Got this area with a lot of smooth hickory I just can't stay out of. It's been on the way up and never quite as far as you did though.

Glad it worked out... I probably would have had to go home to change my pants...
