Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

First, it has been a few years since I've read the story, but I have done some refreshing. Mostly, the entire idea behind "The Most Dangerous Game" is the question of human instinct vs. reason and logic. As humans, we think that all humans are somehow exempt from the wild, beastly instincts of animals; however, we are still animals in the fact that we like the idea of hunter:hunted, predator:prey, etc. The General is feeding his inner desire to hunt by hunting the only thing he has never hunted before, or that is the hardest to hunt: humans. The  hunted depend on their instincts to survive and avoid death and pain. The entire theme is questioning, somewhat, whether humans are morally exempt from the animal kingdom's hunts, and should other humans value one another more than a mere animal. 

Furthermore, the entire idea can also be related to the modern day movie, "The Hunger Games." In that series, the Capital shows their dominance by forcing tributes to kill one another...much like the General does to his victims. The idea that humans kill one another for fun or for reward is one that obviously goes against our modern society's thoughts. 

Do you have specific questions to follow up?

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
