In the short story titled "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell, the author uses setting to covey the theme of the hunter becoming the hunted. One example of setting from the text is, "He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided." This quote shows how setting conveys the theme by showing the transition from Rainsford having to sleep in the woods to him getting to sleep in the General's bed, so the "prey" became more important than the hunter. That is how setting conveys the message of the hunter becoming the hunted.
