Slightly secluded from the human population, the Meadow is mostly inhabited by the more timid breeds of mice. Considered somewhat of a safe haven for novice mouse hunters who hate to see their cheese stolen.
Description and Requirements
The Meadow is the starting point of every hunter and the only location that a Novice has access to. The chance of a hunter encountering one of the more powerful breed of mice in the Meadow is very remote, as this location is generally used by hunters to safely catch weaker mice and accumulate gold and experience points, albeit slowly. Mice are unable to steal a hunters' supplies in the Meadow.

Traveling to the Meadow is free from any location using Larry's Travel. It is generally considered a good idea to purchase cheese in bulk at the local Cheese Shoppe because it is cheaper than at all other locations.
While Novice, Recruit, Apprentice and Initiate hunters can safely accumulate gold and points here without worrying about having any stolen, hunters are not encouraged to stay in the Meadow for too long due to the overall low profits. This is especially so when compared with other locations. Almost any trap will be effective here as the majority of the mice are Indigenous Mice and are quite weak. The hunter has several Trap Setup Options for the Meadow.
A rare Mole or Black Widow Mouse can also be encountered occasionally. For those unable to net the rare mice, the Mole Mouse can also be found in the Windmill and Town of Digby, while the Black Widow can be found in almost all locations.
All standard cheese types can be used in this location. Hunters with up to Apprentice rank should stick to either Cheddar or Marble in this location. Swiss and Brie are not recommended due to their high cost and a new hunters' low trap power, which will likely lead to a net gold loss.
More experienced hunters might consider using White Cheddar to keep the White, Brown, and Grey mice away from their traps and improve their overall profit by attracting only the more valuable breeds of mice.
