looking for manga where the hunter & the hunted become friend..
i'm pretty sure it's not an unusual theme..
like a dragon hunter/slayer befriending the dragon he was hunting, or a hunter befriending a bear he was hunting.. and so on..
accepting shounen, seinen, shoujo, jousei.
and it would be a plus if the hunted is a legendary/magical/mythical animal and the reason why they become friends is because they are equally strong..
not accepting manga where both the hunter and the hunted are the same species

ps: i don't make a list.. so don't worry whether i have or have not read what you're about to suggest.

The only one I can think of is this oneshot (for now)
Kirara to Shiro Ookami (maybe it's more romance than friendship!)

Not exactly fitting but here's a few that kind of come close (?)
Immortal Rain
Watashi no Ookami-san
Vampire Juujikai
Binbougami Ga!
Sengoku Youko

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - "Kono Watashi no Mono Tonare, Yuusha yo" "Kotowaru!" maybe this works

woohoo interesting request. which of above rec fits?
sorry I can't contribute, all I can think is an arc in Shin Angyo Onshi where the hunted human befriends a tiger. they became brothers apparently.

It's hard to tell exactly what you're looking for...
maybe these?

Rasen no Kioku
Innocent Dragon; not exactly with the main characters but within the plot line, anyway.
Gekkou Spice, I think.

The movie Dragonheart certainly fits, hahaha laugh

Go to work, send your kids to school;
Follow fashion, act normal;
Walk on the pavement, watch T.V.;
Save for retirement, obey the law.
Repeat after me: I am free.

Ones that almost fit:
Vampire to Shinigami Vampire and assasin.
Kyuuketsu Yuugi He's the re-incarnated enemy of the family, and at very first goes after the girl.
Sarashi Asobi He's a grim reaper come to collect her soul
Wild Fangs Would fit except it's yaoi.

None that fit perfectly, sorry!
