The Bounders were an organization of Shire-hobbits charged with patrolling the borders.
Along with the Shirriffs-service, they were charged with responsibility of keeping strange persons and creatures from entering the Shire and making trouble. They wandered or perhaps patrolled parts of the Shire and its borders as part of their duties. They deferred to the Shirriffs-service and were probably deputized able-bodied hobbits that were charged with helping them in their job.
