Introduction

The best place to begin this skill would be at one of the Hunter stores in Yanille or Nardah.
These two stores will provide you with everything you need to raise your Hunter stats. For any
additional help, talk to the Hunter guides north of the Trollweiss and Rellekka area, or on the
west side of the Feldip Jungle area.

Types of Hunting

Bird Snaring

This is the first type of hunting you should do. First buy a Bird snare from a Hunter store, then
head to the Feldip Hills Hunter Area (south near the shore). Lay your Bird snare and wait for a
bird to either get caught in it or trigger it and escape. If you catch one, check the trap to
remove the reward. If the bird escapes, dismantle the trap and set it up again.
You can also use a torch to smoke the trap, removing your scent and increasing your chance
of success. Torches can be purchased at the Hunter stores. This requires level 39 Hunter.

Rabbit Hunting

When you complete the quest Eagles' Peak, you have the ability to hunt rabbits. They are
found only in the Piscatoris Hunter area. To hunt rabbits, you will need one ferret and rabbit
snares bought from a hunter store. Once you are at the hunter area, set up your snares
infront of a rabbit burrow (you can smoke these snares as well, with 39 hunter and a lit torch
with you). There are six of them facing in the same direction. Then, 'flush' the rabbit out of its
burrow by clicking on the burrow with a ferret in your inventory.

Tracking
The only thing you need for this is a Noosing wand, which you can buy from the Hunter stores.
To track, equip the Noosing wand, find a burrow, and then inspect it, then follow the tracks
that appear. As you reach the end of the tracks, search nearby bushes and plants to either find
more tracks, or a message saying there might be an animal hiding in the bush. If there is an
animal hiding in the bush, right click it and attack the bush to catch it.

Net Trapping

You can start using the Net Trap at a Hunter level of 29. You will need a Rope, Fishing net, and
Bait. The bait is made from various herbs mixed with Swamp tar. To make the bait, collect
some Swamp tar from the Lumbridge Swamp. For every 15 Swamp tar you will need 1 herb.
After you have obtained 15 Swamp tar, use your herb with a Pestle and mortar to get Ground
herb. Use the Ground herb with the Swamp tar and you will obtain 15 Swamp tar mixed with
the herb. Repeat this process until you have the amount of bait you wish to have.
After you have a rope, fishing net and bait you can leave for any of the Locations listed in the
table below. Search for a young tree, use your bait, fishing net and rope on it to make a Net
Trap. Step back and wait until a creature gets caught or until the trap gets dismantled after a
certain amount of time.

Note: just like in the other hunting methods Camouflaged outfits increase the chance of
success which means your trap should catch creatures faster than without a Camouflaged
outfit, just make sure the outfit fits the environment your Hunting in (you take a Camouflaged
Desert Outfit when you are going to hunt in the desert for example). Also note that bait is not
required, it is there to speed up the Hunting, the bait actually lures creatures to the trap,
without bait you just have to be lucky enough for one of them to walk over the net.

Falconry

The Falconry area is located in the Piscatoris Hunter Area. No equipment is needed but 500 gp
is required as payment to Matthias for the use of his falcon. No gloves can be worn or
weapons wielded while using the falcon. On payment Matthias gives you the falcon and you
automatically wear the falconer's glove and the falcon perches on your arm. To catch the
kebbits click on them, the falcon flies from your arm and hopefully catches the kebbit. Run to
the spot where the falcon is holding his catch and clicking again allows you to retrieve the
falcon and get the fur and bones. Speak to Matthias again to return the falcon and glove
before leaving the Falconry area.

Box Trapping
All you need is a box trap. If you decide to use bait, use it on the box trap and wait for the
animal to take notice. Should the animal trigger the box trap but not get caught, you'll lose
your bait. If the box trap falls over the bait you have placed inside it will not be lost. Simply
collect your trap and bait and start over.

You will need logs and a knife to create Pitfall traps. Once your trap is created, use a Teasing

Pitfall Rewards

The fur obtained from pitfall creatures is either tatty or perfect. You use both to make trousers
and tops at the Fancy Dress Store in eastern Varrock, but only perfect fur can be made into
headdresses. It takes a total of four furs for a Polar kebbit, Common kebbit, Feldip weasel, or
Desert devil set, and a total of three Larupia, Graahk, or Kyatt furs, one of which has to be
"good" and not "tatty", to make and you can also sell both types of fur to the fur traders of
Rellekka and Ardougne, although the tatty fur will get a lower price. These clothes will
increase your chances of catching creatures using Hunter in their respective areas. Larupia
clothes for the jungle and woodland, Horned graahk clothes for the desert, and Sabretooth
kyatt clothes for the polar areas.
