Camouflage outfits

At the Fancy-dress shop owner in Varrock you can trade in materials and coins for camouflage outfits. The furs needed for this are a reward from:

Custom Fur Clothing Shop

The outfits greatly increase the catch rate at their matching location (by roughly 25%). You only benefit from the outfit in the main hunter areas, listed in the main locations section below. The Larupia outfit is for the Piscatoris and Feldip hunter areas, Graahk for the Uzer hunter area, and Kyatt for the Trollweiss area. For the Herblore Habitat area specifically (where Jadinkos can be caught with tracking), there is Witchdoctor camouflage gear that can be obtained as a reward from playing the mini-game.

Locations



Main Locations


A variety of Hunter activities can be done at the main locations. All of them are easily accessible by Fairy rings, and are marked by a Hunter Training symbol on the minimap. Each type of (main) location has corresponding camouflage gear, made from furs that are rewarded by various methods of Hunting.

Note: to view a detailed map of the main Hunting Areas simply click on the names in the table below.

Name Image Type How to get there
Piscatoris Hunter area Piscatoris Wood
Trollweiss and Rellekka Hunter area Trollweiss and Rellekka Polar

Dedicated Locations


Only one type of trapping can be used at these 'dedicated locations', and there are no matching hunter outfits that will benefit you while hunting here.

Most of the hunter locations below are also marked by a Hunter Training symbol on the minimap, but cannot all be easily reached by Fairy rings. Alternative ways of reaching the area are given in the last column of the table below, but may require certain requirements not all specifically listed here. Furthermore, the quickest (recommended) method of transport is listed first; the slowest last.

Catchable Pet Locations


There are six Summoning pets to be caught with the Hunter skill:

They can all be caught in a variety of colors (except Broav). The Gecko, Monkey, Raccoon, and Squirrel locations are detailed below. Platypus and Broav can both be caught in the Feldip Hunter area, after/during the above mentioned quests.

Once you have a pet of a particular species, the traps will always fail if trying to catch another (unless you have it in the manegerie of your Player Owned House); thus these critters are not very suitable for training Hunter.

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 Eagles' Peak quest, 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 Noose wand, which you can buy from the Hunter stores. To track, equip the Noose 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.

Butterfly Catching

In order to catch butterflies using a Butterfly net, you need to have it equipped. If you want to catch the butterfly in a jar, you must have empty jars in your inventory.

Butterflies can also be caught barehandedly. This requires a higher Hunter level and additionally an Agility level, this method awards much higher experience than with a net.

Note: all moths (excluding Charming moth) can be used on another player in multi-way combat to enhance the melee combat skills.

Impling Creatures

These creatures can be found in the magical world of Puro-Puro featured in the Impetuous Impulses mini-game and also anywhere across Gielinor. In Puro-Puro, players must equip a Butterfly net (any type) and have an Impling jar (empty) in their inventory to catch the implings. Whereas in Gielinor, players are able to catch the implings barehanded without requiring these items.

Looting the Implings after they are caught will give you random items. Images below are of implings within the jars you will loot.

Net Trapping

You can start using the Net Trap at a Hunter level of 29. You will need a Rope, a Small Fishing net, and (optionally) some 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, a small 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, small 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.

Net Trap

Note: as Orange salamanders are found at the Uzer (main) hunter location, make sure to bring desert camouflage gear for a better catch rate. The outfits don't work at the other locations. Also, bait is not required, it is there to speed up the Hunting, the bait actually lures creatures to the trap more efficiently.

If you do not collect your salamander in time the trap will dismantle and the salamander escapes.

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.

Pitfall Trapping

You will need logs (or an axe to cut trees to get logs) and a knife to create Pitfall traps. To create traps you simply need to click on the areas designated where the creature is with the knife and logs in your inventory to set the trap. Once your trap is created, use a Teasing stick to prod the animal. The creature will then chase you, trying to hurt you, until you jump over the trap and lead it onto the spikes. The creature may jump over the trap and attack you! If this happens you have to leave that creature and set a new trap and lead a different creature to reset things so the first creature or subsequent creatures do not attack you any longer.

Rewards


The fur obtained from pitfall creatures is either tatty or perfect. You use both to make trousers and tops at the Fancy-dress shop owner 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.

Charm Sprites

Introduction

At level 72 Hunter you can catch Charm sprites at the hunting area just South West of the Tree Gnome Stronghold.

Charm sprites are flying creatures that can be caught with a Yaktwee stick and Sprite lure. Yaktwee Swinmari Cianta will sell you both these items for 2,000gp each, at the Charm sprites hunting area. You will require one of each; they will not be consumed upon use so you only need to acquire them once.

To get there, you can use either Eagles' Peak Lodestone, or the Spirit tree (requires completion of The Tree Gnome Village Quest).

Charm Sprites Map

Catching Charm Sprites

To catch charm sprites you need to:

  1. Click on a moving Neverberry bush to throw your Sprite lure at it.
  2. You will then see your lure on the floor next to the bush, click it.
  3. Once you have clicked it, the lure will return to your inventory and you may see 1-3 charm sprites appear from the bush. Click each one to catch them. You don't have to wait inbetween clicks nor do you have to wait for the charm sprites caught to reach you, so you can click as fast as you please.

Rewards


Charm sprites yield gold, green, crimson, blue, and mystical charm slices. You can combine 5 of the same kind to form one Summoning charm of the corresponding color. The mystical charm slices can be used in place of any of the other colors.

Name of Sprite Experience for Catching Example capture count for first 1,000 (165,850 xp)
Gleaelg 130 685 (89,050 xp)
Tranart 200 246 (49,200 xp)
Slithtils 400 69 (27,600 xp)

Notes: Yaktwee Swinmari Cianta can store up to 15 charm slices of each color for you, as well as 1 Sprite lure and 1 (Enhanced) Yaktwee stick. Catching 1,000 sprites takes roughly 3 hours if clicking at full speed non-stop, that's 5.55 catches a minute on average.


Milestone - 1,000 Charm Sprites

After catching 1,000 charm sprites you will complete the "Yaktwee's a Charm" (completionist) achievement, and you will be able to upgrade your Yaktwee stick to an Enhanced yaktwee stick by speaking to Yaktwee Swinmari Cianta. The Enhanced yaktwee stick will provide a 5% boost to all Hunter experience earned while wearing it.

Enhanced Yaktwee Unlocked Message

Checking Progress

You can right-click the Yaktwee stick to "Check upgrade count". This will tell you the amount you've caught already and the amount remaining to 1,000 (this option is removed when your Yaktwee stick is Enhanced). The other right-click option is: "Check statistics", which will tell you the amount of Sprites you've captured per type (this option remains available on the Enhanced version).


Distraction and Diversion

While hunting in the area you may see Nyriki Tapio appear, allowing you to descend into the Big Chinchompa cave (a safe 'mini-game'). Prior to him showing up, the ground will start shaking periodically, accompanied by a message in the chatbox. The Big Chinchompa distraction and diversion can be done twice a day, and provides a nice Hunter experience boost. The game starts at the top of every hour, so that's when there is a chance of Nyriki appearing in this area.

Arc Hunting

The following creatures can be caught in The Arc and the Uncharted Isles, after completion of Impressing the Locals.

Tortles

Trapping tortles requires the use of Tortle traps. These can be purchased from Reggie or Player made at level 96 Fletching. These traps can be used multiple times, so you do not need a bunch of them. The number of traps that can be set at a time depends upon your Hunter level.

Private Hunting Grounds

One of the rewards of the Big Chinchompa Distraction and Diversion are quota tickets. These can be used to step through the private hunting ground portals right next to the orange portal on the first floor of the house south of the Gnome agility course, at the Tree Gnome Stronghold. At these hunting grounds you will be able to hunt specific creatures without having to fight with other players for a spot. Entering a portal does not use a ticket but you must have one in your inventory. When you catch a creature one ticket will be used up. If you forgot to take the needed traps then you may take 5 traps out of the chest outside of the portals.

Hunter urns


To boost the experience you receive while Hunting (by 25%), you can use Hunter urns. Simply have an urn in your inventory for it to fill up over time while you train. When it is full you can teleport it away for extra experience.

Urns are devided into five types; each type works while Hunting creatures requiring up until a certain Hunter level, listed in the table below. The "(nr)" version of the urns can be bought from the Grand Exchange. A Mud rune must be added to them to become active and ready for use (the non-tradable "(r)" version of the urn). While adding the Mud rune yourself requires a particular Crafting level, one may also use the assist system to have another player perform this task.

Name Up to Hunter level Crafting level to create (can be assisted) XP to fill XP gained on teleporting
Cracked hunter urn
Cracked hunter urn (r)
11 3 1,100 220

Note: to further boost the experience received from urns, one may use an Urn enhancer (requires level 24 Invention and the relevant blueprints).


Temporary level boosts and other rewards


For more information on how to boost your level, see the Temporary Stat Leveling Techniques special report.

For Experience rewards from quests, see the Quest Experience Guide special report.

The Hunter's outfit will provide a 6% bonus (if wearing the full set) to all xp gained while hunting, this stacks with the 5% bonus from the Enhanced yaktwee stick (while equipped ofcourse) for a total of 11%.

At level 90 Hunter you will unlock The Trapper in the Player-Owned ports mini-game, for special missions.
