Not exactly a hunting pic, but this dude is a deadly hunter if you're a bug hiding out on a sun flower! My BIL took this pic a couple of days ago and got National Geographic "Photo of the Day" recognition for it!!

Great pic!

They do have a nasty bite and also emit some kind of chemical that is very unpleasant. They are an assassin insect and do a good job of killing unwanted pests. Just don't let them take an interest in you.

Looks like an Assassin Beetle to me. They are blood suckers and carry the Chagas disease.
Adios,
