A hunt person is a person who hunts. A hunter.
You learned the reading of 狩 when you learned the kanji, but the reading for 人 is totally irregular. Just imagine that you're hunting a reindeer named Rudolph (りゅうど). He has an unusually red nose, which makes him easy to spot and puts him at a bit of a disadvantage.
I didn’t know the hunters used the five-day workweek system.
