Have you always wanted a cool-looking hat with colourful feathers on it? Well, here's your chance: Chompy Bird Hunting. To be able to play this mini game, you must have completed the Big Chompy Bird Hunting quest. This mini-game is fun, but very time consuming.
There are four methods which you could use to reach the most popular location of the Chompy Birds. Moreover, there are two locations where you are able to range Chompy Birds. The most commonly used location is found just south of Rantz's cave. The relatively unknown location is found by the teak trees, south-west of Castle Wars. This location has many swamp toads, but no wolves to kill, hindering your ability to fletch ogre arrows nearby. However, it is closer to the bank, and as a result is the better location for this mini game, providing you have enough Ogre arrows to last you long enough.
A simple method of getting there is teleporting to the Castle Wars arena by using a ring of duelling. Simply rub the ring and choose Castle Wars, and you will appear near the bank in the lobby, where you can withdraw the supplies you will need. Exit the lobby, go down the bridge to the south, and continue south past Jiggig, then head either west (to the relatively un-used location) or south-east to Rantz's cave.
Alternatively, you could use Watchtower Teleport, requiring level 58 magic, and walk through Yanille, and south of Gu'Tanoth to the Hunting grounds.
You could also use the Mobilising Armies Teleport, requring only 10 magic.
Upon completion of the One Small Favour quest, you are able to use the Gnome Glider to reach Lemantolly Undri, or, Feldip Hills. This glider comes out just south of Gu'Tanoth, very close to the Hunting grounds. Once you arrive, just head east. However, you should withdraw all your items before-hand, to save you having to walk to the Castle Wars bank
The easiest way to get there is by using the fairy ring teleportation system. Using the code AKS will teleport you directly in Feldip Hills and then you simple have to go east.Note: To use the fairy rings you must have at least completed up to Step 3 of Fairy Tale Part II, A
If you have already brought your ogre arrows then you can skip ahead to the baiting section. For those who haven't brought pre-made Ogre arrows; don't worry. You will be instructed how to make them below.
Before you start off make sure you have your feathers, knife, chisel, woodcutting hatchet, and weapon at hand. West of the hunting grounds is a swamp, and around it, you will see a clump of Achey trees. Cut as many Achey logs as you want and use a knife on them to get Ogre shafts (each log makes a random amount of 2-6 shafts). Keep doing this until you have at least 100 shafts.
Now for the arrowheads; skulking around the swamp are some level 64 Grey Wolves. Take out your weapon and start to attack them. When they're killed, pick up their bones. Use your chisel on the bones to make arrowheads. Repeat this process until you have an almost equal number of shafts and arrowheads (similarily to shafts, each bone makes a random amount of 2-6 arrowheads).
The same process as Fletching regular arrows applies here as well. Use the feathers on the shafts (each shaft requires 4 feathers) and then use the arrowheads on the headless arrows. You now have your ogre arrows.
Throughout Feldip Hills, there are many small pools of murky water. It is at these pools that you will find your bait; toads (Picture). When you find the toad, use your ogre bellows on it and it will become a bloated toad. You can only get three toads at a time so there will be some running back and forth as you have to restock the toads.
Drop one inflated toad at one of three different locations in the hunting area. Now stand far enough away to be out of view of the Chompy, but still be able to see the swamp toads. If you plan on mass killing Chompies, then drop several.
When the Chompy Bird appears, there will be a yellow arrow hovering over it. Shoot at him with your ogre bow and pick up any of its drops that you would like to keep. Your bow will automatically record the kill, which you are able to see as well. Note that you cannot pick up the swamp toads that are remaining as they will explode.

Note: The bellows, bow, and arrows are required to do this mini game.
You can also pluck the Chompy's to get their feathers to fletch your own arrows instead of having to bring all of them with you.
The ring of duelling is only needed if you plan on using that method of getting to the hunting grounds or if you want to bank for more arrows. Likewise, the lunar staff is also there if you would like to enter the hunting ground or to bank at Zanaris. You will only need the axe, knife, chisel, feathers, and weapon if you intend to make more arrows when you run out.
Not only is acquiring one of these hats simple, but it's also fun and a good way to obtain feathers. Chompy Hunting is one of the greatest mini-games, and you'll soon think so too. Below is a table of all the different kinds of Chompy Hats:
|Picture||Name||Kills Required||Picture||Name||Kills Required|
|Marksman||125||Ogre Dragon Archer||1700|
|Ogre Woodsman||170||Dragon Archer||2250|
|Woodsman||225||Expert Ogre Dragon Archer||3000|
|Ogre Forester||300||Expert Dragon Archer||4000|
If you manage to reach 4000 kills, you will in addition to receiving the chompy hat, receive an extra 30,000 ranged xp.
A: Walk north of Rantz until you see a cave entrance, enter it and open the chest on the north-west corner (Picture).
A: This depends on your Ranged level. Level 40-50 Rangers can kill them in 2 hits generally, 60 and above could easily kill in 1 hit. Picking up arrows would be a good idea so you can reuse them.
A: Ogre arrow shafts/headless arrows/arrows all require level 5 fletching. Achey trees require level 1 Woodcutting to chop.
A: Level 30 Ranged and above is required.
A: If you lose your Ogre Bow, speak to Rantz and he'll give you a new one for a small charge of 500-600 coins. Your kill count does NOT reset; the same applies for getting a Chompy Hat. Your kill count remains the same. If you get the kill count for the final hat, you will receive all other hats as well.
A: Yes, the Ogre Composite Bow from Zogre Flesh Eaters and Brutal Arrows will also work for Chompy Hunting. Also note that the number of Chompy Birds you have killed will transfer if you switch from Ogre Bow to Ogre Composite Bow.
