The term "hunter" seems to be in use for two different professions. Word of God on page 66 (link to SSSS) states that there are hunters providing food, and thus grouped into the category of peasants. On the other hand, Sigrun is "the captain of a troll- and giant-hunting regiment", which clearly puts her into the military instead. Furthermore, the Norwegians are famed for being "sea beast hunters" as well.

Main objective of extermination aside, it is still unclear whether monsters would actually qualify as edible.
