My first introduction to reconnaissance was Jason Haddix’s Bug Bounty Hunters Methodology. It’s the de facto standard and is still updated every year. There are currently four iterations and I encourage you to watch them all.

Nowadays, Sunday Recon with NahamSec is my main resource for all things recon. You can’t beat seeing someone do recon live and being able to ask them questions.

The go-to VPS for bug bounty hunters. I use it for all of my own recon and automation needs, plus it also doubles as a VPN. They have every cloud resource you need at an affordable price.

View these videos as a foundation and draw inspiration from them.

In the end, the best bug bounty recon methodology is a unique one only you can come up with. It’ll ensure that you get the best results and the least amount of dupes.
