1 - Buy Tomahawks from Manzanita Post, $10 each, for a max of 20. I recommend buying 20 just in case.
2 - Get 1 kill by throwing, 1 kill by melee, and 1 kill on horseback. This can be done on civilians.
3 - Kill a flying bird with a Tomahawk without dead eye. Don't try to throw a Tomahawk at a bird when it's really high in the air. There are some places where birds are perched such as right outside Manzanita Post or at the docks in Blackwater. As soon as you get close to the bird it will start to fly, aim and kill. Alternatively, if you kill a bunch of people Vultures will start to fly low overhead, so if you can get on top of a building, or aim well enough from the ground, you can pick one off easily. (Thanks to Guugley for pointing this out.)
4 - 5 kills in a row without missing. You can apparently do this on civilians (Thanks to Fluorisfun for pointing this out, and donut77 for confirmation) or combine it with #5
5 - Complete a hideout using just Tomahawks. Load up on them and choose your favourite hideout, I did Twin Rocks. Only about 10 enemies in total. Use dead eye to kill enemies on the rocks, and stay in cover.
