Can hunt be used as a noun with possession?

Yes, the noun "hunt" can be preceded by a possessive. Generally, when the phrase stands alone , the possessor will be a noun indicating time:

  • They couldn't be part of the day's hunt.
  • On the next morning's hunt, they killed a bunch of geese.

When the possessor is a person, the noun "hunt" is generally followed by a "for" phrase indicating the object of the hunt:

  • The submarine commander's hunt for Red October was difficult.
  • Their hunt for the perfect sofa finally met with success.
