Hunter Captive Pursuit

The Hunters (ochshea in their own language) are a group of aliens from the Gamma Quadrant. The Hunters pursue the Tosk, who are created for just that purpose, yet afford the Tosk a great deal of respect.

In 2369, a Hunter starship entered the Alpha Quadrant through the Bajoran wormhole in their search for a Tosk, who had taken refuge on Deep Space 9. Miles O'Brien assisted the Tosk in escaping from the Hunters. (DS9 episode: "Captive Pursuit")

In 2376, the Hunter Elshada led a hunt pursuing a Tosk who had sought refuge aboard the Even Odds. Elshada and his fellow Hunters later discovered the Tosk on the Eav'oq homeworld and killed him. (DS9 novel: Rising Son)

A sketch in The Making of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine gives the species name of the Hunters as the Drai.
According to DS9 production sources, the Hunters were scripted to appear in "The Search" as members of the Dominion, but their role was cut from the final episode. The writers also established, unofficially[citation needed], that "whoever breeds the Tosk for the Hunters also breeds the Jem'Hadar, explaining some of the similarities between both reptilian, genetically engineered species.
