Default eating cougar

i'm sitting here eating cougar steak. not bad, a little chewy but taste is a cross between pork sirloin and deer. i think i'll use it just like bear, roast/stew/grind. i have a few packages of steak packaged and will cut a few more but it will mostly be taco meat grind. that is what we are short of in the freezer. i have a bag in the freezer for dinner for the wife to decide on. i can say this right now: in my opinion it is not grilling meat or steak. but it will make great slow cooker roasts/stew/grind.it is a mild meat that absorbs spice very well. smells great and has a good texture. if you ever get a cougar, definitely plan on eating it. it is every bit as good as bear, the only reason it is not as good as deer or elk. it is chewy in steaks. flavorwise, it is verygood.

Thanks for the report. Been anxious to hear about it. Just remember to cook it thoroughly and if anyone makes jerky out of it...make sure you get the temp up high just like pork. I recall a story about a bunch of guys in Idaho that got trichinosis from eating cougar jerky that was not cooked to temp.

I cooked a cougar rolled roast in the crock pot last year. Threw in a can of Cream of Mushroom and a Cream of Celery, etc. Looked and tasted just like a pork loin at dinner time.

Toxoplasmosis is not as well known as trichinosis because it's a parasite with life cycle in felines (cat family). Cougars in the PNW are known to be infected. Unlike trichinosis that affects only the person eating the meat, "toxo" infections can be passed from pregnant women to their babies.

So please handle such meat carefully and cook it to at least 160 F.

Stir fry is excellent with cougar too. Slice into small pieces and cook fast and hot in a wak, couldn't tell the difference between that an pork, like baltz said it takes spices very well.

Thanks Baltz, that is good looking meat!

It's good to get a first hand report about the eatablity (is that a word?).

Congrats again!

I cooked a cougar backstrap and a pork loin side by side on the grill, and had a few friends over. A couple of gals got a little testy when they found out what i fed em', but admitted it was good.

Wildcat taco's are the bomb!!!

well my wife did up a standard breaded steak with potatoes and green beans for dinner. great taste, "BUT" the best steaks on a hindquarter are chewy. we are going to stew meat and grind the rest.

Thanks for the report as I have always wondered what they would taste like at the dinner table. Now I will probably shoot one if I have the chance knowing that it would be edible.

Maybe check out oriental recipes for your cat?

When young, I worked at a Chinese restaurant. One of the cooks was a great hound/cat hunter. For their Chinese New Year's feast, (a private affair) the main delicacy was the cougar he had taken for the event.

After chatting on a trapping site, I bit the bullet (so to speak) and tried some bobcat I trapped in the Cascades. Seasoned, breaded and fried till WELL done. Wife and each of four kids tried some. Tasted pretty good. Couldn't quite tell if it was an actual aftertaste or just the fact that I knew it was cat. But I think if I catch any more before season ends I'll save the meat for something like breakfast sausage.

For those that are eating cougar, you have more $#%^ than I do. I have been told it taste pretty good, but when I talked to a Federal Wildlife Agent who traps cougars and he stated what he finds in the stomach of most cougars. No way am I going to eat cougar meat. JMHO.
Baltz, glad to get to hunt cougars more, thanks for doing the deer and elk herd a favor.

Don't they pretty much eat fresh meat?? Seems the contents of their stomachs, wouldn't begin to compare with a bear's stomach. I'd love to try cougar sometime. But then, I've eaten shetland pony and possum before...

Thanks for the informative post!

I would think that the cougars eating habbits are much more refined than a bear, which will eat rotting meat with maggots. mmmmmmmm

I understand that we don't eat the guts. But it's whats in the guts. Cougars don't eat just fresh meat. I am not knocking anyone who is eating cougar, just saying you wont find this hunter eating it. Baltz, those pictures of the meat may change my mind and try some cougar.

i'm sitting here eating cougar soft tacos. i used the large hole plate on the grinder and i think that is how i'll grind it all. as taco meat it is better than elk or deer. equal to the best spring bear. much better than beef

Tried cooking it once. We made the mistake of cooking a porkchop like cut. The smell got to me and I couldn't eat it, black licorice and lamb have the same effect. I am glad to hear it is eating good.

this has very little smell if any. it smells like any deer or elk i have ever cooked. i started with the idea i was eating it. so i skinned it, cleaned it asap. then wrapped it and chilled it fast. cut it in chunks and froze it, after check in. conditions where perfect to do this with overnite temp in the teens. but like any animal, some stink. i killed a bull elk that had an oder, all 185lbs of bonedout meat.

Preperation is likely the key. Eating the cougar was an after thought in our case, it didn't have the same handling/cooling as we do with deer/elk. The smell bothered me so much that I threw the pan away as well. Really.

Not keeping a fish on ice will make if be "fishy" flavored but spices and pride can cover that up.

Meat is never claimed to have a "meaty" flavor.

If the thought of eating cougar makes one loose ones appetite keep the meat cool and offer it free on ifish.

Seriously, as with all meat, the first hour or so can make or break the final product. IMHO

I have tried it and thought it was pretty good. Was a little hesitant at first but ate it up and beat my chest a couple times. Felt a little stronger afterwards. I'll try anything once.

Baltz, when you grind it for taco meat are you adding anyother meats/fat to it?

Not funny! Actually, I may have to start eating duck whenever we play the ducks. Sounds like a good tradition.

Baltz, glad to get to hunt cougars more, thanks for doing the deer and elk herd a favor.

Somehow a few of my grapes roots found their way into the septic system, Gotta tell ya the plants have never produced so well and the vino has never tasted so good.

Let me guess, Your not thirsty?

Cougar is very good. Reminds me of moose/elk and it was ever so tender. Makes me think that Baltzs chewyness might be from lactic acid and it running after the shots(s). The cougar I had made the best chicken fried steaks I have had of any wild game... Yum
