Many hunters, of course, use the term “sport.” For some, it is simply habit—a word they grew up using, a word they've read a million times in books, in magazines, and online. For some, hunting does feel like “fun,” or like a contest with animals, or like a competition with other hunters.
Hunting is now nothing more than a violent form of recreation that the vast majority of hunters do not need for subsistence.
Hunting has contributed to the extinction of animal species all over the world, including the Tasmanian tiger and the great auk.
Is hunting considered to be a sport? If yes, I'm a real sportsman:) I've recently purchased a new thermal scope www.atncorp.com/thermal-scope-thor-hd . My bro recommended me to but that scope. He has been using it for hog hunting down in Georgia, seems like he loves the optics.
