The primary purpose of a deer park was to hunt for deer. Hunting could take several forms and in Radholme the traditional sport with the king and noblemen on horseback probably did not take place as the park was very isolated and a long way from any palace or Royal house. Instead the park keeper and his men would probably hunt for deer using 'bow and stable' ie a kind of ambush where beaters with dogs would drive the deer towards hidden archers.
