Is hunting a Sport?

A recent podcast Robbie, of Blood Origins, explained how he thought Hunting wasn’t a sport, but something more. 

“…If you properly respect what you are after, and shoot it cleanly and on the animal’s terrain, if you imprison in your mind all the wonder of the day from sky to smell to breeze to flowers—then you have not merely killed an animal. You have lent immortality to a beast you have killed because you loved him and wanted him forever so that you could recapture the day…” Robert Ruark, author and big game hunter.
