The polar kebbit is a species of kebbit found in the Rellekka Hunter area, the Taverley Hunting Area and the polar kebbit portal. It is one of the earliest animals players can hunt with the Hunter skill, requiring only level 1 Hunter.
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 15 Hunter experience, plus bones, raw beast meat, and polar kebbit fur. Note: box traps are used instead in the private hunting area. 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) as well as used as a tertiary ingredient in the level 71 Arctic bear Summoning pouch.
Trackable polar kebbits can be found in the Rellekka Hunter area as well as the Taverley Hunting Area.
To get there you can use the Rellekka Lodestone and travel north, alternatively, if you have completed the Eagles' Peak quest, the Eagle transport system is a fast way in and out. An even more convenient option uses fairy ring code DKS, 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 A Fairy Tale II - Cure a Queen.
Polar kebbits caught using box traps can also be found in the private hunting area 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 give 300 experience each and consume one polar kebbit quota ticket per kebbit caught.
