Good online money making methods?

A combination of hunting and stranger missions seems to be the fastest way to earn money for me, if you have any unidentified stranger missions (marked stranger) I believe there's still a bug where it puts you in a solo session after completing it. If you don't have any left sometimes I manage to get in a solo session by afking for extended periods during quiet hours but it's a little random has to when it triggers. 

From there you could choose to hunt entirely in peace or blast out stranger missions over and over and over, I've used this method tonnes of times and have made well over $500 a session.

I hate to say it but I think showdown series are the fastest way to gain money and xp. If you're opposed to that, then hunting and fishing is the way to go. Deer and rabbits are plentiful and bagging a 3* deer carcass is worth $7($10 for a buck) plus the money you get for their pelts. 2 rabbit carcasses add up to $7 as well.as for fish, most are worth $1 apiece. You can hold up to 10, so that' $10 for 10 of 1 species. Trout and salmon are worth $2.50 apiece, or $25 for a full load. Around the coast north of St. Denis and around the boardwalks in the swamps you can find herons, spoonbills and pelicans and a full load of their plumes will net you around $15.  While you're  there, kill any gators you see. A full load of big game meat will give you $7.50.

A wee tip, get the Lake Lure out just opposite the butcher in Blackwater, Lake Sturgeon are plentiful and it's the quick carry across to the butcher that makes the difference, you can rack up a few every time you're down there. Admittedly it's a busy bit and shots to the head while you actually have a fishing rod in your hands is a hazard, but I've had few problems lately.

Any suggestions would be great. So far i've been replaying missions and not making near enough

I go to a sockeye salmon spot, use the special lake lure to get ten of those, then I drop a carcass in the water and wait like five minutes until there are a ton of fish near it. I drop in dynamite and wait for the damaged fish to float up. I usually get about 20 or more fish from that and not all of them go to one *, some stay ** and ***.  I get 25 for the salmon and that 1 dollar stick of dynamite gets me 20-30 more.  I do it this way because If I get killed I dont lose the fish.

Still cannot really grasp that people find fishing the best grinding method. Moneywise it is decent, but do you get xp for each fish you catch?

If you are an above average PVP player grinding showdowns series large seems the best for xp and money combined.

Saint Denis huntingground gives you best of xp and money if you get to know the huntinggrounds well. Combining all the birds with feather values of 1.50 usd a piece or higher and having 10 of them - Spoonbills / Loons / Pelicans / Herons / Cranes / vultures and Owls. small alligators *** sell for 3.50 a skin and 6.50 for carcass x 2 (lasso the 2nd). Along with the boars /turkeys / raccoons / oppossums / squirrels and especially muskusrats (1.95 per pelt). 2 perfect muskusrat carcasses nett you 8 usd (hang on horse if not available pelicans or herons give 3.25 a piece) There are many more other animals that turn up in a 24 cycle in that area and you can make between 100 USD to 150 USD per hour gameplay along with a decent amount of xp (birds give 10 a piece and alligators 15 xp along with all the 5xp kills).

I don't think any other area is as rich in bird and small game variety. With regards to griefing it might happen you get griefed and lose 20 to 30 usd in a run but you still bring back a lot of money and the xp gathered cannot be taken away.

Hunting up in Big Valley is a great way to make some money. There's lots of herbs, animal 9f all sorts like Wolf, Elk, Deer, Pronghorn, and even the occasional Bear. Lots of birds, too, and don't forget the magic cabin. If you switch servers after looting Hanging Dog Ranch, you can loot everything that was there again.. And there's a lot of stuff. Just keep in mind that you'll lose any carcasses and skins that are on the back of your horse when you switch. There's a campfire up there 8f you need to make something to eat or whatever. :)

Tbh, is there really much of a difference between grinding series matches, hunting and fishing, doing missions?  It seems to me that any minor advantages one has over another is outweighed by boredom.  Seems better, to me, to vary what I do - some matches, some hunting, some fishing etc.

That's what I do. I vary activities. I tend to keep hunting for when I play solo but I also do that too with groups to change it up in our session
