- For other uses of the term bounty, see bounty (disambiguation).
A bounty is a monetary reward offered by a group or an individual, often a law enforcement organization, for the capture or retrieval of a person or an object. The person or object in question is a bounty head and the pursuer is a bounty hunter. According to legal precedents, a bounty cannot be placed on artificial lifeforms.
Bounties can be cashed in electronically at special kiosks where a bounty hunter can insert his/her card to retrieve the bounty.
