The Ernest Hemmingway quote isn't in the context of Richard Connell's The Most Dangerous Game.

This same quote was shown to Carlos Hathcock. He copied Hemingway's words on a piece of paper. "He got that right", Hathcock said. "It was the hunt, not the killing." Hathcock said in a book written about his career as a sniper: "I like shooting, and I love hunting. But I never did enjoy killing anybody. It's my job. If I don't get those bastards, then they're gonna kill a lot of these kids dressed up like Marines. That's the way I look at it."

So anyway, there is somewhat of a tradition to this quote.

You have to know the context.
