Ate a cougar
« on: November 25, 2015, 11:00:00 PM »
Ok, now that I have your attention (I've heard all the cougar jokes by the way). The neighbour shot a great big cougar on the weekend and gave me the meat in exchange for skinning it for him so there's not much about traditional bowhunting here yet but bear with me.

 If you ever have the chance to get some cougar meat jump at it and if you go on a hunt definitely bring back all the meat you can carry.

  The backstraps are a cross between the best pork you've ever had and veal, amazing.  I think it's going to make very good sausage and schnitzel, and nice medallions with Marsella sauce, and stew....you get my drift I guess.  I've got some pieces curing to make ham out of and I'll report back in a week or so about those.

I liked the one I shot years ago. Lighter coloured and coarse texture.
My wife just couldn't get past the idea of eating a cat. Enjoy

All I know about eating cougar meat is that it can carry trichinosis. I would be cooking it completely if I was eating it.
