Bounty hunter have been around for thousands of years and it doesn't look like they are going anywhere any time soon. Back in the day there were not that many regulations or laws stopping anyone from being a bounty hunter. Of course the world was a hell of mess anyway and bounty hunters flourished along with it. Criminals came in the the hundreds and coin purses were filled with enough coin they would be set for life. But as governments gained more power and control of their lands they made laws to keep bounty hunters in line. Licenses and permits were need to be a bounty hunter and to carry certain weapons on them. Laws were also made for them to be able to their jobs and not be harassed by officials or locals.
