How to Train to Level 53 Hunter
Level 1-29 Hunter
In order to begin training to 99 Hunter, you need to work your way up through the first couple of levels by catching birds on bird snares. The first bird you can catch at level 1 is the Crimson Swift, which will give you 34 experience per catch and are located on the shore of the Feldip Hunter area, located in the Feldip Hills directly south of Yanille.
Once you reach level 5, you can move to the Uzer Hunter area to catch Golden Warbler, which is located east of the entrance where you first enter the Alkarid Desert. Go through the desert entrance, walk east, cross the bridge, and keep going east until you run into the Golden Warblers. These will give you around 48 experience each.
At level 9, you can head to the Piscatoris Hunter area, which is located northwest of the Tree Gnome Stronghold and north of Eagles' Peak, where you can catch Copper Longtail and receive 61 hunter exp each. Catch Copper Longtails until you reach level 19, where you can then head back to the Feldip Hunter area and catch Tropical Wagtail birds for 95 experience each, until you reach level 29 Hunter.
Level 29-53 Hunter
As soon as you reach level 29 hunter, you now can switch away from catching birds with bird snares and move to a new strategy of this Runescape hunter guide, where you should now get ready to catch lizards and salamanders with net traps. A net trap consists of a rope and a small fishing net, which will then be placed onto trees, in order to catch lizards and salamanders running around.
At level 29, you are able to catch Swamp Lizards, which will give you 152 experience each. These are located in the Swamp Lizard hunting area in Morytania. In order to catch more Swamp Lizards and catch them faster, you can also place guam tar on the net traps, but it is not required. Catch Swamp Lizards until you reach level 47.
When you reach level 47, you can go back to the Uzer Hunter area where you caught Golden Warblers; however, you will now be catching Orange Salamanders, which will give you 224 experience each. In order to catch more Orange Salamanders faster, you can place Marrentill tar on the net traps; however, once again this isn't required.
Catch Orange Salamders until you reach level 53, where you can then turn to Page 2 of this 99 hunter guide to see the best way to train from level 53 hunting to level 63 hunter. Then, Page 3 of this Runescape Hunter Guide will go through the best way to get 99 Hunter and make Runescape money hunting to 99 Hunter. Finally, Page 4 will explain another strategy used by Runescape players with over level 17 hunter, in order to make fast Runescape money hunting.
