So... I have no idea how the game expects me to clear 20 enemies AND catch up to the fleeing bounty in 1 second.  That's what it's been today.  Target has arrived.  I fire once, taking out a guard, and get the notice that the bounty is escaping.  ONE SECOND later, the mission ends, he's escaped.  It's ridiculous.  Bounty missions are damn near impossible when they constantly (invisibly) run away, let alone when they do it in 1 second.

Yeah, what I do is ignore the other guys and see if the bounty runs.

 

If the bounty runs, it is easy because you just pursue on your horse (they are often on foot.)

 

I shoot one of the guys maybe, to get the bounty so he is running. You'll kind of see his red "bounty" thing flash before he goes invisible again.

Ya, I've taken to doing the same, but it's a shame.... part of the fun is the shootout with the goons.  Plus, 9 times out of 10, he'll run the other way, so I have to go through his whole army to get TO him.  I mean, that's good sense, but not much fun for my horse.

This is one of the reasons I'll likely never level BH; I'm way too fond of "Wellllllllllllll, they did say Dead or Alive...<insert rolling block headshot here>"  ;)

Is there a map similar to the treasure map that lists all the possible locations of a bounty when you have to inspect clues and use eagle eye?

 

I just did a $$$ bounty from Strawberry where I had to look for clues from Blackwater Camp. Inspected all the clues except for that sleeping bag cause it wasn’t giving me an option to inspect it. So I quit the game, then went back on a few minutes later, started a $$$ bounty in Blackwater, gave me the same scenario and location so I got the same sh*t all over again. So I rage quit and called it a night.

^ It's missing a few locations though, but it's pretty useful nonetheless.

I'm so late to the party. I'm level 25 and just getting to grips with it all. I'm really enjoying these. Finding  them a challenge. Are they all possible solo? 

Many thanks

Decided to do the Wolf Man bounty again. Found him at his camp playing with two wolves and I shot them both. He then says “you’ve killed them all” and no more wolves appeared, even after having a look around for some. Easiest legendary bounty I’ve ever done.

Maybe this will be helpful, if you are willing to change your ability card setup.  When I do bounty hunts, I use Quiet An Inspiration for my dead eye card.  As soon as I see the bounty, I shoot him/her with a tracking arrow, activate my dead eye, chase him/her down and bola/hogtie.  The dead eye continuously keeps my health regenerating so the NPC gun fire doesn't take as much of a toll on my health.  After I have the target hogtied, I lay waste to all of the goons.  My horse is usually the one that takes the most pain...lol.  I sometimes have to revive my horse.

Actually, my strategy lately has been to chug a tonic, walk boldly into the camp and hogtie the target while the enemy blasts away.  I then take my time wiping them out.

Whoa, nice! (map of search bounty locations.)

 

Those search bounties can be irritating ;)

Lols, I've done that some too. I especially do that on the one with the four ladies, since you can easily hog tie them all (then just hope you can get the wagon over there, before any possibly slip away.) 

Or if it seems like it will go south, I'll just shoot four so none escape ;)

Yeah, with the bounty wagon and some coordination/luck they are. Only one I've found mostly impossible is when those guys are up at the fort/thing way north, with no way to ride the bounty wagon up there on that terrain (at least not for me ;) )

So I often shoot them all, but you can't even get them ALL back to the NPC's bounty wagon on your horse in time. But that one only comes up if you are accepting a bounty around Strawberry, or something; I've taken to getting a bounty around Armadillo/Tumbleweed/Benedict's more, they are usually pretty easy by comparison to the ones you might get way up north in the snow. Near Armadillo, I've got the one to get the four ladies and they are pretty dang close to Armadillo mostly just standing there, so it is an easy hogtie of them all and toss in the wagon then travel a few feet ;)

 

I hardly do bounties anymore, though. I'll do the one star, easy one, for "bounty turned in with at least 5 mintues left." Only way that can go horrible if it is a stupid one where the bounty is on a train... hate those!
