Hunting is the original term that encompassed Bounty Hunting and Guarding.

Hunting is often considered the safest profession, due to the little risk many hunters put into their trips. The main reason for this is the few items risked on a journey, and the good chances for rewards. A Hunter will take a bounty(based on the Pirate's color), and no items.

Quite often, a hunter will send out a series of Vans, Go Karts, Golf Carts, Milk Trucks, Sidecar Motorcycles, pretty much anything with a reasonable attack power, targeting most colors, without loading any weapons. A hunter that loses a battle will only lose anything in his cargo, and since most hunt without weapons, then in general no losses incur.
Another common trick is to chose a very fast vehicle, such as a Sports Car, load it with Bats and Pool Cues, and target low level vehicles. Since none of the low level vehicles can outrun a Sports Car, and few target blue, the Sports Car's color, you can rack up a large amount of bounties like this. If the hunter loses his weapons, they can be replaced for a very low sum of money
Quite often, an Hunter on a good trip can pull in 3 or 4 bounties. the main issue is that most of these come from beginner players who are pirating, and can't afford the bounty. Instead of creating gold out of nowhere, the game now gives "loans" meaning the hunter does not receive the gold until the pirate can afford to pay the loan off, and they pay them off in order of when they received them.
On the sea, the system changes somewhat. Since ships can be destroyed in battle, there is a greater risk of using more valuable ones. Also, because Ships have larger cargoes, pirates will load up with more weapons, and it is much more likely you will need weapons in order to beat them. This also increases the risk, because you are more likely to lose the weapons. Last of all, to make the risk even greater, Cannons up the ante incredibly. Your Cannons can't be stolen, but if a pirate has several good cannons and grape shots, it is quite unlikely your weapons will even be needed.
Also note that the main pirate of the sea is considered to be Manifest, who has a record of sinking the only 2 Ferries discovered, and countless valuables stolen.
It is quite unlikely a land pirate will make a lot of gold immediately. The only way to rake in big bounties is to buy very expensive vehicles, and get lucky enough to have greater power than the pirate.
The major pirates of the land are considered to be Adam, who has 3 out of the 5 top vehicles, and Oradow, who has 5 Bandits.
