The Pick Stick makes it easy, almost fun to police your hulls. Steel-headed hulls - which is almost all hunting loads these days -- practically jump onto the Pick Stick's powerful magnet. The stick itself has a rubber-handled grip and telescopes from 32 ½" to 55 ½". I have one I use at the gun club. I gave one to a friend with a very bad back who looks after the range at our local WMA, a job that includes picking up mountains of empties. He doesn't have to bend over to pick up hulls anymore and he tells me his Pick Stick works perfectly in puddles, snow and mud. Get one to keep in your blind, your boat or your decoy trailer and quit making messes in the field.
