Why is hunting hard?

I was driving home from the Friends of Animals Ranch today when I ran across quite a few deer. Jasper was disappointed that he didn't get to give chase.

It led me to wonder why people think of hunting deer as sport. I stopped the car, rolled down one window for me and another for the dog. I got out the little camera and took a few shots. Jasper stared at the deer who simply stared back at Jasper. I'm pretty sure I could have taken a deer down with a shotgun full of bird shot. Is that sporting?

Maybe it is like how I golf. You can call it a sport, but it needs to be done on a sunny day and with beer?
