How to Become a Bounty Hunter in 9 Easy Steps

by: L Scott Harrell

"Becoming a bounty hunter shouldn’t be all that hard right? I mean I've boiled it down to 9 easy steps…

1. Find a quality bounty hunter school or training.
2. Get licensed, if required.
3. If you are unsure if licensing is required, look it up.
4. Get the essential gear and support systems in place.
5. Market your services.
6. If successful, find and arrest the fugitive, then take him to jail.
7. If successful, invoice and collect for services from client.
8. Repeat steps 6 through 8 as often as necessary.
9. Find more bounty hunter training and improve your skills. Again, repeat as often as necessary.

Actually, I wish it were that easy but it is not- though not impossible as many would have you imagine.

Since I don’t know anything about you or your experience, I am going to assume that you are starting from scratch... no experience with the bail bond industry, skip tracing, taking people into custody, or finding a bounty hunter job.

With that in mind I am going to give you the best advice you will get in our industry...Read More..."

This is interesting, but I'm looking for information about bounty hunting in the 1880s, especially concerning the wanted dead or alive policy, was it still active in the 1880s, how long would it take to get paid, etc. Would appreciate any info or links. Thanks.
