    "sport" is simply the name we gave to differentiate from market hunting which almost caused massive extinctions. "Sport" hunting as you call it was codified by Leopold and other conservationists and is widely credited with saving the large species of north America. It's called the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.

    “Conservation… is a positive exercise of skill and insight, not merely a negative exercise of abstinence and caution…” Aldo Leopold
