Only the individual granted these arms has the right to use them.  for more information see our pages on heraldry here:

Or, three hunting horns, Vert, garnished and stringed, Gules.
5 June 1865 the Lord Lyon granted these arms to Robert Hunter of Hunterston, Ayrshire
The coat of arms recorded for Robert Caldwell Hunter, father of Robert. While the basic components of the arms remain the same, the shield design is more complex and there are no supporters.
The blazon is: Vert three dogs of Chace Courant Argent Collared Or, on a Chief of the Second three Hunting Horns of the First Stringed Gules and, for Crest, a Greyhound sejant Argent charged Or.
