There were two kinds of hunts. The first was the one that came to mind when I first began my research.
At Force Hunting involved a group of fight and active hunters on horseback or foot setting out into field and forest to seek out, corner, and kill their game in the game's natural habitat. The hunting party (with the help of their dogs) would chase the prey to near exhaustion before going in for the kill. The dangerous Wild Boar was the usual prey in these kinds of hunts.
Bow and Stable Hunting involved herding the prey into an enclosed area for the not-so-active hunter to kill. The usual prey for these kinds of hunts were deer.
