Bird snare detail

Bird snares are available from the Hunter supply stores in Yanille and Nardah. They are also found in a box in the bank at Land's End at Zeah. These snares require no bait. They are set in Hunter areas to catch the various birds of RuneScape. Snaring birds always provides bones, raw bird meat, and feathers to be used in fishing or fletching.

At level 20 Hunter you can use 2 bird snares instead of one.

TIP: you can't stand on top of the bird snare while catching the birds, or you will fail catching the bird.

Bird snare statesEdit

There are three different kind of states a bird snare can fall into:

  • The first state, is the waiting state. While the bird snare is in that state, all you can do is to wait until the bird snare either fails to catch a bird or success.
  • The second state, is the failed state. The bird snare falls into that state, when the bird snare failed to catch the bird. While its in the failed state, the bird snare is no longer able to catch a bird, and the trap must be rebuilt.
  • The third (and preferred) state, is the success state. When the trap finally caught a bird, the trap falls into the success state and can be collected. When you collect your bird, the trap will automatically land in your inventory, along with the bones, raw bird meat and feathers. It can then be rebuilt.
