The Hunt is called against Garou who have committed capital crimes, yet still retain a vestige of honor. Murderers (although not treasonous ones) and the like are Hunted. A Hunting Pack is chosen by the ritemaster (Honor is gained by those chosen), which then hunts down and kills the offender. There is no quarter given, although death exculpates the condemned Garou from the onus if his or her crime.
