The protagonist Rainsford becomes - because he refuses to human his fellow human beings like wild game - the hunted. When at the end of the book he is confronting his antagonist he says, "I'm still a beast at bay"
Man becomes symbolically a wild beast
Ironically many have pointed out that Paintball is the modern equivalent of the evil hunting of your fellow men for the shear joy of sport
Also in the 1970's a Man named Richard Hanson actually did engage in this taking women into the Alaskan Brush and setting them loose nude to be hunted and killed by him. -See John Douglas' Book Mind Hunter
