I'm talking animal and you are talking human. Thats the bit you have got to come to terms with. Its totally different.

Its like getting infront of goal and then not to take the shot.

I must point out here that hunters don't kill everything that moves either. I could no more than pull the trigger on a hare sitting at my feet in its form than fly. Hunters have more interest in preserving the UKs wildlife than most. Its just that we shoot and eat some of them.

I assume you agree that you shouldn't make things harder in the name of sport though, for example taking a longer range shot than you should and you should aim for the most humane kill? After all in your cow example you expect the slaughter man to be as swift and humane as possible.

Hunting is hunting, sport is sport, two different things. Why confuse them?

Hunting is a sport, a field sport. I really can't see why you people can't accept it? Ask any fieldsportsman or woman.

Nah, footballs a sport, rugby is a sport, F1 is a commercial exersise, darts is a game and hunting is hunting. Its not a sport because only the people doing the killing are willing participants. Whats wrong with it being hunting? Why so desperate for it to be listed as a sport? The people with the guns refer to themselves as hunters not sportsmen.

Are you a hunter Andy B ?If you are what experience have you got ?
I'm not desperate for it to be listed as a sport, because it already is.

Is troll patrol hunting or a sport? Or an indie band?

Not that old response again, i am not an immigrant or an ethnic minority either but i have a view! Why are you so desperate not to be called a hunter even though you hunt, you make it sound as though being labeled a hunter is a bad thing!

Can we succesfully argue that consumer shopping is a sport?

Yes as long as you have some experience of what you are talking about.

The search for the items, identification, comparison of attributes, selection of the quarry, skilfull haggling, the quick efficient exchange (Select your weapon, Cash, Plastic or barter) and the sense of achievement of the bargain.

I'm a hunter I'm a hunter, when in all of this discussion have I shown any desperation in trying to say what I quite clearly am ?

I'm a hunter, I'm proud of the fact and will be until the day I die.

No, but sado masochism is a possiblity. And as many a husband dragged around the shops to buy lady clothes will testify, not all participants are willing.
