Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!


** We reserve the right to blog what we want (same as other blogs). This blog is NOT affiliated with any others. **

Salivating Schlongs Hunt

Salivating Schlongs Hunt
Another little gem from the folks at Depravity Hunts. Apparently there was some fuss about their hunt earlier this summer - "Titillating Tatas" - they were accused of being sexist in their choice of theme. In the spirit of fairness, and a health dose of tongue in cheek, they now bring you the Salivating Schlongs Hunt. 20-someodd stores who have hidden goodies for the hunter with a sense of humor, all relating to...you guessed it...schlongs. Don't bring your grandmother on this hunt with you, but grab a few of your naughty friends and have a blast in pursuit of that elusive white jockstrap. The hunt runs until the end of the month, so don't waste too much time before you give it a try. There is an in-world group, as well as an official blog page with hints and SLurls.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Ugh..I mean..Yay for progress....

Just a quick note to let folks know that we do have more hunts this month in store for posting...but...I am being pokey about getting them posted in a timely manner. I switched from Phoenix to Firestorm over the weekend, and omg - I evidently have zero learning curve in making the switch...~LOL~ I KNOW stuff is there, I saw the buttons...but I cant remember WHERE I saw them or how to find them again...which is playing havoc with my picture taking ability.

So...I put together a crib sheet of sorts for myself, and I think we are back in business in terms of photos for the blog...expect the posts to resume in a day or so...and any changes you might see in terms of photos, blame Firestorm!

In all seriousness, tho, folks - I had been dreading making the switch, and I was pleasantly surprised that it was not as painful as I had feared. Certain elements blow, and blow badly, but overall I am finding that it loads much faster for me and puts less of a load on my computer than Phoenix did. Almost enough to compensate for the annoying things...such as light settings that don't hold from session to session, or losing all the changes to tabs and whatnot when I crash, oh, and lets not forget the apparent need to change all the icon images so that things in inventory take longer to figure out....not that I am complaining (overly much), Firestorm developers - I think you guys did a great job in trying to make V2 better. The more I use it, the more familiar the changes will become, I am sure, until it is second nature to use, just like Phoenix was.

Cheers, and happy hunting!

Alphabet Soup Hunt

Alphabet Soup Hunt
The Alphabet Soup Hunt has a cute premise - rather than hunting by numbers, each store is assigned a letter of the alphabet. Rather than a specific icon to hunt for, each store has its assigned letter hidden somewhere in the store, and most of the gifts have been themed to be related to their store letter as well. This is a fun, easy to do little hunt with some really nice gifts for the lucky hunters. Some of the letters are easy, some are hard, and not all of them are the same color. This is a great hunt to do in an evening or two with your favorite hunt buddy. You have until the end of the month, so enjoy yourselves, explore the shops, and have some Alphabet soup!

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Depraved Urban Wreckage

Depraved Urban Wreckage Hunt
The good folks from the Depraved Hunts have hit us again with the Depraved Urban Wreckage hunt. They have put together 51 fantastic stores this time around, and this is a great hunt to get your mind off the summer heat. The hunt path itself runs smoothly - the official blog has Slurls and hints, and I got through the hunt without any problems at all.

The hunt goes to the end of the month, so you still have plenty of time to round up your friends and plan your own urban assault on the goodies stashed across the grid!

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Ocio Xtreme Hunt: 43-84

Ocio Extreme Hunt
And here we have the second half of the Ocio Xtreme Hunt. More fabulous stores and some amazing gifts from the designers await those hunters intrepid enough to brave their way through this challenging hunt. The second half of the hunt went a little smoother for me than the first half, with no skipped stores and a relatively easy time navigating from store to store along the hunt path. Remember to let the stores rez all the way - there are no hints on this hunt, so you have to rely on your camera skills to locate the hidden hunt icons. Take your friends with you: the more eyes the better, not to mention you look less silly doing the victory dance with a group rather than alone after you find a particularly tough one! =)

Limited time left on this hunt - you only have until the 21st, so don't delay if you plan on doing this one!

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Ocio Xtreme Hunt: 1-42

Ocio Extreme Hunt
The Ocio Xtreme Hunt was put together by a bunch of bloggers to showcase some of their favorite stores. I wasn't sure if I was going to blog it or not - given the short duration of the hunt, and how busy the beginning of the month always is, and that since it is coordinated by bloggers the likelihood of it being covered in a ton of blogs - but I gave it a shot and boy, am I glad I did! This hunt features some old veterans of the SL hunts, as well as a whole slew of new places to explore. I definitely found some new favorite stores for my personal wardrobe in SL. As for the hunt, its a tough one. There is an in-world group and an official blog, but the hunt has no hints that I could find and not all the information on the blog is up to date in terms of correct SLurls and store information. Additionally, you do need to have the group tags on for the hunt items to give you a gift. In a few places, tags are not set properly, but the items can be bought for 0L. All in all, with a little effort, you should be able to navigate the hunt fairly well. I did have to use my search a few times to locate stores, but it was definitely do-able.

You only have until the 21st, and some of the hunt items are hidden fairly well, so don't waste too much time - get your hunt buddies together and go check out these great stores!

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

August Heat Hunt

August Heat Hunt
August Heat...the name conjures images of long, hot days without a hint of a breeze...sticky weather when your thoughts turn to ice cream, swimming pools, even the trusty lawn sprinkler for any way to escape the heat. This hunt delivers a ton of goodies to help you find that perfect moment of cool in the hot summer months. You will find wet suits to bikinis, hot tubs to country fields, kinky fun to candy apples on this hunt. There is an official blog with Slurls and hints, as well as an in-world group. We had no problems navigating through the hunt path, so it should be clear sailing for everyone at this point.

Grab a cool drink, strip down to your tiniest tanks and skimpiest shorts, and head out with your pals on the August Heat Hunt - its a great jaunt around SL and guaranteed to take your mind off the sticky weather outside!

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
