Hunt is an unincorporated community in western Kerr County, Texas. It is located in the heart of the Hill Country of Texas (the rugged limestone hills that separate the coastal plain from the Edwards Plateau). The city of Hunt, TX sits on the Northern fork of the Guadalupe River on Highway 39.


The settlement was originally named Japonica; it was later changed to Hunt when Alva Joy purchased land in the area from Bob Hunt and established a US Post Office on the site.

The Stonehenge II replica was built on the North Fork north of Hunt. In the summer of 2012, Stonehenge II was moved to the front yard of the Point Theater in nearby Ingram.


Hunt sits at the confluence of the North and South Forks of the Guadalupe River.
