Your workstation's dns search domain/suffix needs to be set to hunter.local
you can do this on the network adapter's settings or by changing the machine's primary DNS suffix ( under "more" in the change computer name screen )

Alternatively ( and by far the easiest ) is to set it using DHCP.  It is option number 15 (DNS domain name)
