I looked up the word 'Cognitive' and it's a fancy word for intelligence apparently. 343 Guilty Spark states that any species that has enough Bio-mass (is large enough) and cognitive capabilities (smart enough) is a potential vector, or host I'll presume.

So with a little research the answer is simple. While the Hunters are more than big enough they are just too stupid to be useful. Hunters may be big, and strong, but aren't too bright.

Halo: The Flood shows more concretely the Flood's usage of both Jackals and Grunts to produce Carriers, yet we still receive no official word whatsoever on the Hunter's own susceptibility. For now, this will have to do ;)
