Skip Tracing - A Bounty Hunter's Biggest Job

A day in the life of a Bounty Hunter consists of whole lot of “skip tracing”, a tactic used to trace a fugitive who skipped on a bail bond and is working hard to avoid you, the Bounty Hunter.  What does skip tracing entail?  It can be used in all types of scenarios and especially when a debt is involved.  In our case we are talking about a fugitive who has debt with a bail bondsman.  A Bounty Hunter uses skip tracing to collect and analyze as much relevant information as possible to track the target.  Finding the target is the goal of the fugitive recovery business.

Bounty Hunting can be competitive.  If one Bounty Hunter is a better skip tracer than another he will find the fugitive first and collect the reward.  We at Become-a-Bounty-Hunter feel it is our duty to show you the most practical ways of being an efficient skip tracer so you will find your fugitive first.  A successful skip trace looks something like this:

  • Think like the fugitive and trace their steps
  • Think like a Criminal Investigator and always be one step ahead
  • Use Law Enforcement tactics to properly apprehend your subject
  • Collect your money from the bondsman
  • Move on to your next assignment
