Easily done. All you need to do is auto-aim then move the right thumbstick up a little. I found it best to aim a little higher on the head. You can also use dead-eye targeting to easily get many of these. You should get this before the end of the story. what you get in multiplayer also counts towards this

Note courtesy of Curtieson: Pause -> Stats -> Combat -> Headshots - that is useful

Also, this is 10x easier now with the new DLC. There are 100+ NPCs coming at you, most come from a long ways away. I played "The River" maybe 4 or 5 times and got it...the NPCs just line up on the river bank WAITING to be shot!

BONUS: If you can manage to shoot off an enemy's hat without causing them any damage you will unlock a sombrero for you avatar. Try aiming just above the hat and you should get it in just a few tries.

Again thank you to Curtieson for the helpful additions.

They key to this achievement is deadeye. Just try to take every shot you take with dead eye(click the right stick while aiming with the LT). Towards the second half of the game, you have plenty of money, so just keep stocked up on moonshine, tobacco, and snake oil to refill your dead eye meter when it depletes. Also note that once you have reached level 10 in the sharpshooter challenge, your dead eye meter gets replenished by killing enemies, so it becomes much easier to have dead eye available(note it only replenishes for kills gotten WITHOUT deadeye)

I played through the entire original game first and then started the Undead Nightmare DLC. If you have the DLC, when the casual aiming is on in the options menu, the auto-target automatically focuses on the head of the targeted zombie. You can rack up headshots very quickly.
