From the SRTCG Q&A:Bounty Hunter
Q1: Can you use Bounty Hunter whenever a runner leaves a run, for whatever
reason? Barney Phyffe, Green Apple, or even if they just fall into the Nets
or can't get past the Maglock?
A1: Bounty Hunter can be used whenever a Runner pulls out of a run (for any
reason) before taking the Objective.

Because your runners didn't take the objective they are fair game for the
bounty hunter.
