I recently captured a hunting horn from a Nejerpzit warrior and honestly I've never saw it before even after hundreds of gameplay hours.

When I use that hunting horn, it gives the text: you produce a fancy sound.

So, what does it mean? You use it to attract aniamls or call yoru dogs in combat or what?

I'm pretty sure it does nothing at all.

It may have had a use in a much earlier version of the game.

If you have unleashed dogs outside of [!] command range, activating the horn is supposed to call them to your location.

Is this confirmed in 3.82?

 "intrigued by that story some people tell about a "magic hunting horn" that caused an elk to come right to a hunter who used it before going to sleep."

 AFAIK it's main purpose is legend.

 Though I heard it was a "White Elk" that it once called ;D

Maybe it's merely placebo effect :P
In some cases with unleashed dogs, players have reported that hanging around the same local zoom-in map where a dog went missing eventually resulted in being reunited with their lost pet.

Without the use of a hunting horn we may attribute this to a dog's pathing AI, which likely includes instructions to home in on the player character's location once it decides to abort chasing after a target.
