A Natural Instinct
Gonna dig me a hole,♪
Gonna trap a bird in it,♪
Gonna take this sharpened axe...♪
...Oh, partner! Ain't hunting grand!?
Forename, the whole camp's in a hubbub! Seems a lone chocobo's been sighted wanderin' around not too far south, waitin' for a pair of hunters to come snatch it up. An easy target'll make the perfect first hunt for Q'yantaa.
Now, don't go thinkin' this bird'll just walk right into your traps─Q'yantaa's still as green as they come. Go with her an' lend a hand afore she misses out on her first catch.
This chocobo seems like an easy catch, but it'll slip by if you ain't careful.
You heard Loupard! What're you waiting for, partner─that chocobo's not gonna catch itself!
Ah, wait─before I forget... Ah hah! This is the special mixture I made outta those mushrooms and some gysahl greens. Fragrant, aren't they?
The chocobo we're aiming to nab's been sighted to the south, which means plenty of hunters that think they're clever set up traps there. Lucky for us, though, I've thought one step ahead.
You see, since so many hunters've been down south, their scent'll be as plain to the bird as this mushroom's is to us. Now if I was a chocobo, I'd steer well clear of that place.
I might even be inclined to take a slightly more dangerous route so as to not run into any hunters. Now, if my instincts're right, that chocobo'll go right through bandersnatch territory. That's why we gotta set up our traps to the north. Brilliant idea, ain't it?
What's that? Don't tell me you're scared of the big bad bandersnatches! Just tread lightly and we'll both come back with a new chocobo. Here, let's divide up the greens and get to setting our traps.
Once everything's set up, let's meet at the hunters' camp to the north. Good luck, partner!
What took you so long!? I finished setting up my trap bells ago! So, are the gysahl greens in their place?
I knew I could count on my partner! I hope you didn't taste any, because I put a little something extra in my gysahl greens: sleeping powder! Once that chocobo falls for my trap it'll fall into a deep sleep! Genius!
Did you hear that!? Was that...a chocobo cry!? It was over in the direction of your trap─let's go, partner!
Can you believe it!? It's a genuine bona fide drowsified chocobo! See, hunting's easy!
My plan worked perfectly! I'll take the chocobo back to Tailfeather. Partner, could you go and tell Loupard that I'm a real hunter now?
I'll do the heavy lifting this time. Go ahead and tell Loupard of our success!
How're you and that wily Miqo'te faring?
You don't say! Q'yantaa actually bagged a bird!?
I ain't never seen a hunter get a chocobo on their first outing... I guess what they say about Miqo'te is true.
Can't leave you, the unsung hero, without his bit of praise either. If things keep goin' this well then we may not even need to find a partner!
