The Polar Kebbit is a monster found in the Rellekka Hunter area or the Taverley Hunting Area. It was released with the Hunter skill. The entrance to the Polar Kebbit area in Taverley is located to the west, between the cows and the flax patch. It can be caught at hunter level 1.
Catching a Polar Kebbit involves tracking it from its hole, to its final destination. The kebbits are always in snowdrifts when you catch them, by using a noose wand and "attacking" the snow drift. Success yields 30 Hunter experience, plus bones, raw beast meat, and polar kebbit fur. Note: box traps are used instead in the private hunting area.
- Bones may be buried.
- Raw beast meat may be either dropped, or saved to cook on a spit roast.
- Polar Kebbit fur may be sold on the Grand Exchange, or turned into Polar camouflage gear by the Fancy Dress Shop salesman in Varrock (4 furs and 40 coins for the set).
- Polar kebbit fur is also the tertiary ingredient in the level 71 Arctic bear Summoning pouch.
To get there you can use the Rellekka Lodestone and travel north, alternatively, if you have completed the Eagle's Peak quest, the Eagle transport system is a fast way in and out. An even more convenient option uses Fairy Ring code D-K-S, since the return code D-K-R will take players right back to the Grand Exchange. This option requires the unlocking of the Fairy Ring Network part-way through Fairytale II - Cure a Queen. Player should note that you do not have to do the whole quest to use the rings, you only have to do it up to the part where you are granted permission to use them, which, conveniently, requires no skill levels or items besides a Dramen or Lunar Staff. Though, the most efficient location remains to be Taverley.
Private hunting areaEdit
Note: Box traps are needed here.
Polar kebbits can also be found in the private hunting area accessed for 15 Competence Points per kebbit through the Polar kebbit portal in Mieliki Tapio's house upstairs in the Tree Gnome Stronghold, south of the Gnome Agility Course. Here at Level 70 Hunting or above, they can be caught with Box traps instead of by tracking. These kebbits earn the player 253 experience points each.
To catch a Polar Kebbit, you must search a burrow of one of the Kebbits by clicking on it, following the tracks to find the kebbit's next hiding area, and finally snaring it with a noose wand by searching the snow drift and right-clicking and selecting attack snow drift.
Usually, tracking the kebbit takes about 3 segments. The use of tracks, and the fact that Polar Kebbits are the Level 1 creature, makes many players assume that catching polar kebbits is a linear follow-the-tracks exercise. In fact, it's more like connect-the-dots.
Start with one of the 2 holes, because those are the places to begin finding kebbit tracks.
Once you find tracks, the kebbit will not be where the tracks lead. Instead, you're trying to figure where the kebbit went next.
A survey of the area will familiarize you with the tunnel entrances, logs, etc. If the kebbit went into a burrow complex, for example, odds are that they came out of another hole leading from that area. They might also zip across the ice to nearby burrow holes, especially if tracks lead to snowbanks, so check those. The point is, there are a limited set of possibilities, depending on where your kebbit tracks are.
By the time you've found 2 track sets, there is a possibility that the place the tracks lead will get you a hiding kebbit at your 3rd stop. Make sure you have the noose wand out, and at least 3 inventory slots free. The mechanics are as follows:
You can Search a suspected snowdrift. If a kebbit is present, a message will appear, saying something like "It looks like there might be a creature hiding under this snowdrift". If there is no kebbit in the drift, a message will say "It appears this snowdrift is devoid of creatures".

- It is possible to get an old boot from hunting these kebbits.
- At some point the message in the chatbox said "you manage to noose a common kebbit..." This had been thought fixed but it's not.
