Easy money hint
Make more money on bounty hunter side missions by capturing bounties alive. When you find a wanted poster that offers more money if you capture them alive and are having trouble doing so, try killing all gang members or bodyguards (if any). If the bounty is on a horse, kill the horse, then get close and melee attack. This will stun the fugitive and give you an opportunity to grab them using LB. Then, press X to subdue the fugitive. This earns you more money for each bounty. If you accidentally release him by pressing LB, melee him and grab him again. However, if you do this too many times or if he has been shot, you may kill him and thus receive less money.
