Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Hunt attended the common schools. In his youth, he was a professional ball player and umpire. He became a stonecutter and later a stone contractor.

During his service in Congress, he was the only Representative to have a union card.[1] He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1906 and for nomination in 1908.
