I am interested in this crest as one of my forebears a William Hunt was settled in Ireland by the British Government prior to 1750. It has been suggested that it is his family crest as per Fairbairn's Book of Creasts page 292 as follows "On amount cvert a talbot sejant or collared and lined gu- on a line fastened by a bow knot to a halberd erect the staff of the second the blad argent". As sugested by others it may be one of a number of Hunt crests, whether the Willian above I am not sure.As a young lad my grandmother did show me a folk with this crest inscribed on the handle.
