Apparently on of the better questions would have been, what didn't they hunt? I found a nice list of the game they enjoyed tracking down and was surprised on some of the animals on it, like otter and lynx. Apparently they did not eat otter, but hunted it regardless.
Game and recommended method of hunting according to The Boke of St Albans, a text from 1486
The Stag - Bow and Stable (see last week's entry for explanation)
The Deer, Hart or Roebuck - Bow and Stable
Boar - At Force
Foxes - Bow and Stable (not for eating)
Rabbits - Usually hunted by sending dogs down their holes
Otters - Also hunted using dogs, but not for eating
Game birds (geese, ducks, pheasant, partridge, grouse etc.) - Bow and Stable
Another source lists some additional animals including ibex, bear, wolf, badger and wild cat.
I wonder if they ate the wild cat.
