If you are killing them and eating them, or have another valid reason to kill them ie prevent them from killing your chickens, over population etc. IMHO that is not killing for sport. Going specifically to kill things because you feel like it and want a head on your wall, an animal hide on your floor, or the thrill of shooting at a unpredictable living moving target. IMHO is morally wrong.

Personally, I don't hunt anything I will not eat.
