Do you think hunting or fishing are sports?
I heard something on the radio yesterday that puts a different spin on thinking that hunting or fishing are sports. It went something like "Whatever you are trying to catch does not know that it's participating, so it can't be considered a sport." We got a chuckle from it.
What do you think?

i think its a sport. personally.. why i don't know i just know i get a **** good workout when i catch something :) but that is a good spin on it. lol

Definitely an interesting spin. Ya know, I'm not sure. I definitely consider the hunting we do with our dogs sport because of the training aspect that it requires. Fishing, maybe not so much ;)

I consider both hunting and fishing a sport! :)

I do both and I consider hunting a sport. Fishing, unless you are deep sea fishing, is more or less a leisure activity. I guarantee that anyone who decided to come climb these mtns with me, would consider it a sport. Also, I would completely argue with the idea that game animals don't know they are participating. Why else would they try and get away?

If you think your hunting or fishing is a sport, then it is.
If you consider it a hobby, then it's a hobby to you.
Different perspectives give people different ideas on things (: xx
If it gets you out of the house and out in the fresh air - yes.
Hunting and fishing to me is as much of as sport as walking the dog or playing fetch or trail riding, its a good leisure activity but not so much a sport. jmo

Yes it is.
I also think that whoever said that is not merely debating the activities, but is having feeble attempt at redefining English language
I didnt mean to ruffle any feathers, i fish quite often and i just dont consider what i do on the bank or in the canoe a sport, again jmo.
