Vocabulary: fishing and hunting...
Some people go fishing and/ or hunting because they find it entertaining. They often consider it's the same as "having a rest" from the daily rat race, and appreciate some quiet time in nature; they like being in close contact with nature, the river, the lakes or the woods and plains.
Others like bringing back fresh fish or meat, they cook it and eat it with friends; most of the time, they feel really proud of their catch.
For others, what's important is the thrill of it: it's like a fight... Fishing and catching a great number of different species, or a really HUGE fish, perhaps, is a real motivation. Similarly, hunting and tracking down animals is like a challenge to them. Some hunters like the confrontation with the animal and really enjoy it when they win...
