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. **

Noir Nights Hunt

Noir Nights Hunt
Noir Nights kicked off on the 9th, and we could barely wait for it to start! The theme is a great one, the store line up contained a nice mix of familiar faces and new spots to explore and it's been a while since we had done an adult hunt. We were not disappointed - even as early as we did the hunt (same day it opened), we had no problem at all getting through the hunt path. There is an official blog with SLurls and hints, as well as an in-world group for hunters who like the more social aspects or need a little extra help. Be sure to check the blog often, as it is being kept up to date with any changes to the hunt path. (Note: As of posting this, the store had the item out but not for sale has been corrected, so all 54 stores are good to go!)

The gifts were amazing - the photobug in me was squeeing in joy through the whole unpack/photograph process at seeing so many poses and pose props in addition to the expected gorgeous clothing offerings. And - BONUS - the men scored some pretty nice things too, so don't be shy about rounding up your better half when you hit the hunt path.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Werewolf In Love Hunt

Werewolf In Love
Second Life has a thriving designer/hunt community, and this hunt is a shining example of what people can accomplish when they pull together to help each other. The Werewolf in Love hunt was planned as a surprise for JoseDiego Silverspur, aka Pup P. Garou. JD has been an active participant in the SL hunt scene for quite some time, in addition to being captain of the Relay for Life Meiville team. The coordinators managed to keep this hunt a secret from him (hence no in-world group or official blog site) as a thank you for all his hard work and to help give him a little support in his own endeavors. The hunt items themselves are free, but each store has a red hydrant set up which is for donations, as JD is currently living with his own medical issues. Donations are not required to do the hunt, but if you have a few linden to spare, they are truly appreciated.

The hunt itself was a pleasure to do. At 30 stores, it was a comfortable size to do in an evening. There were no breaks in the hunt path and there were some pretty amazing stores taking part. A few times, we had to remind ourselves that we were hunting as we got sidetracked exploring some of these locations! Its a fun hunt with some great gifts and a chance to do something nice for someone, so come on out and do a little Werewolf in Love hunting.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Who's That Girl? Hunt

WTG Hunt
Pay hunts are not our thing - the spirit of the blog is free hunts plus we keep very little of what we show, so paying for hunts is oftentimes just throwing lindens away. However, this one was intriguing and under 50 stores, so we gave it a shot. Who's That Girl? Hunt is a fun collection of 43 stores offering a wide range of clothing and accessories. We did not come across any male gifts on the hunt, but what we did find for the ladies was cute and quirky. We had a lot of fun poking around the stores, many of which were new to us. We used the official blog to get around the hunt and we were able to visit every location without problems. The hunt runs for less than a month, so if you are thinking about giving it a try, you better get cracking!

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Mix Match Hunt

Twisted 7
We were looking for a nice, easy hunt to do and ran into the Mix Match Hunt. This was a really fun way to spend the evening - 31 stores, a cute little pillow to hunt for, and a chance to check out some pretty neat shops. There is an official hunt blog with SLurls and hints and updated info regarding stores which are not ready yet (only 1 out of 31!), but we had no problem using the LMs provided in the hunt folders. There were a couple stores giving objects instead of folders, and 1 store who gave the item a random name, but otherwise it was smooth sailing.

We had a lot of fun on this, and its really a perfect size to knock off in an evening or two if you are looking for something fun and cute to do.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

The 3rd Crazy Hair Hunt

Crazy Hair Hunt 3
It's been a while since the last crazy hair hunt, so when I heard it was starting up, I knew that it would be one that we had to do. One of my early fascinations with Second Life was hair, and I have probably switched out the one I am wearing 20 times for every day I have spent in SL. Nothing like some crazy hair to get my ooh shiny meter pegged at 10 and this hunt did not disappoint in that area. We hit it early, and there were some rough patches. Several locations did not have prizes out, and the lines were crossed with some of Shadow's pet peeves, misnamed folders and gifts in objects, but the fun we had once we started taking the pictures more than made up for it. Let it be known that for the most part, these are not your every day wear it around the grid type offerings, unless your every day life is fae or mermaid oriented. This type of hunt really brings out the creativity in the builders, and some of them made me howl in laughter. I especially liked the ones that had tiny little animals hanging around where my fabulous normally ebon flowing locks reside. As we were taking the pictures, we decided that we would each pick out our favorites out of the ones we drew for pictures, as you can see below. This was a fun hunt for us, and we hope that the problems we had were fixed in short order and that our readers enjoy it as much as we did.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
