Man that's horrifically expensive, you'd think they'd be paying you to remove pests from the local area.
One would think… logically anyways.

The local government isn’t often logical.

The local hunters association wasn’t real helpful when I asked about bounties. Worried about rivals?! I must look like more of a badass bounty hunter than I thought 8-)
Here in Kumamoto, bounties are as follows:
crow 500yen
boar 8000yen
deer 13,000yen
monkey 100,000yen(!) <need special permission to shoot though>

For monkeys is there a set limit on how many you can shoot?
Also why are the bounties so cheap in Kumamoto? For boars the hunters here get about 20,000 each.
I write a load of bollocks, don't take me seriously.
