Post-Apocalyptic Bounty Hunting

I know what you’re thinking.  In a post-apocalyptic world, bounty hunting is probably a great way to do the exact opposite of surviving.  When everyone’s running around busy just trying to scrounge food and not get eaten by the things that wander the night, who’s going to have time, inclination, or ability to pay someone else to hunt bad guys?

But there are actually a bunch of reasons that post-apocalyptic bounty hunting might be the perfect job for a person with the right skill set.  Consider:

  1. Right now, very few of us have need of a bounty hunter.  We typically don’t experience a lot of interpersonal conflict in our day-to-day lives that requires armed and dangerous people to help us resolve them.  But when society has completely broken down, the amount of strife and conflict between various parties will be almost limitless.  Everywhere you go, you’re likely to find trouble, which just means that as a Post-Apocalyptic Bounty Hunter (PABH) your list of potential clients is likely to include pretty much everyone.
  2. Sure, there aren’t really any laws except for the ones you make yourself.   It might seem tricky to figure out what it means to be a law-breaking bad guy when nobody’s keeping track of which laws are still in effect.  But even in a post-apocalyptic world, there will still be a desire for justice.  As a PABH, you’re sure to be welcomed into many of the resilient communities who’ve been wronged but don’t know what to do about it.
  3. Hours and pay.  Currency may or may not be a thing of the past, but you’re likely to find people are willing to pay you in precious supplies.  That saves you a lot of time and effort and frankly very tedious work of scavenging around the blasted and decaying cityscape looking for useful things.  You’ll most likely be able to make your own hours, traveling when you want, and never having to work after sunset, since that’s mostly when the bad things come.  Mostly.  And of course, if you decide you just can’t get the job done after all, you can always take another one somewhere else, since your current clients will probably just assume you’ve perished.
  4. The other side of the equation:  the Bad Guy.  What Bad Guy in a post-apocalyptic world is ever going to expect someone to hunt them down for “what they done”?  Bad guys probably aren’t doing all that much to hide their tracks.  They might not even know they are bad guys.  And it doesn’t matter because it’s not up to you as a PABH to decide, after all.  You’re no judge or jury.  You’re just providing a delivery service.
  5. And finally, job satisfaction.  You won’t be like all the other slobs, just grinding out a meaningless existence from 9-5 for a paycheck and/or a couple of bottles of whisky and a half-functioning battery.  You’ll be making a difference.  By choosing to side with justice, you’re doing your part to help mend the shreds of society.  People have to have some standards, after all.

Of course, it probably helps if you’ve trained extensively and prepared for just such a life before the Collapse.  Fortunately, you’ve still got a little time.

But only a little.

Three

The world has collapsed, and there are no heroes any more.
But when a lone gunman reluctantly accepts the mantel of protector to a young boy and his dying mother against the forces that pursue them, a hero may yet arise.

    Hi Tabitha, Just wanted to point out that The Founding Fields is involved in the blog tour with a giveaway as well and that my personal blog, Shadowhawk’s Shade is part of it with a guest post by Jay, as linked in the #8 comment. So if you could rename #11 in the post from The Founding Fields to Shadowhawk’s Shade, that’d be great!

      Haha – that’s so funny because I only just changed it FROM The Founding Fields link this morning – so I originally had it right – but then when I looked at your personal blog I saw the question and thought I must have had it wrong. I will update that now =).

    I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome giveaway (I want…so bad!) and to let you know how much fun I had taking part in the hunt!! What a brilliant idea! It took me so long to fill out the rafflecopter — not because the questions were hard, but because I ended up checking out reviews AND interviews/etc at every. single. stop!! Sooo, if that was your intent… well-played.

    One other thing… I couldn’t find the questions, or anything about the book, at three of the stops (Cheryl’s Book Nook, Lily Pond Reads, Geeks versus Nerds). Hopefully I’m not just a complete dumbass! 😉 Thanks again … I had a blast. And I shall be fervently hoping that I win a copy as I dream away the night.

    • Tabitha the Pabkins

      Hi Holly- I agree I couldn’t find the questions on those three stops either – I added three extra entries for you! You are totally not a dumbass LOL – I couldn’t find the questions on several of the stops either. Unfortunately, I don’t think everyone put up their blog tour post as they were supposed to. With a tour this big I’m sure things like that can happen. I hope you’ll visit us again soon!
