    Hunter Hunted

    Last night I saw a programme on NAT GEO WILD, title of the programme was Hunter Hunted. I am unable to understand the meaning of this title. Hunter (a subject, doer) and Hunted (past participle).
    What does such a title mean? Please give one more example.

    Warm Regards

    Re: Hunter Hunted

    Without knowing more, I would assume it was about a species that is normally a hunter that is itself being hunted.

    Re: Hunter Hunted

    You mean,

    The hunter (i.e. crocodile etc) was hunted by someone?

    It could be about people- if a detective (normally the hunter) was being followed and investigated (hunted), then you could use it.
