    when we lived 'out West' several folks we knew had. I'd always thought 'carnivore' meat wouldn't taste good, but I guess I was wrong.

    Tonight on Jim Zumbo, he said he had some 'cougar sausage' that was really good.

    Think I'll pass.
    On second thought, if offered, I guess I would try it once.........just to see.

    I've read that the mountain men considered mtn. Lion the best tasting meat of all of the animals they shot. I'd try some if the opportunity presented itself. Seems to me there is a guy that frequents these boards that lives in Oregon and has harvested a bunch of cougers out west, maybe he will chime in with an opinion.

    Seriously. Have a buddy that took a nice lion out west a couple of years ago, he brought some of it cooked into a swedish meatball dish to a wild game dinner.

    Hardly anyone wanted to try it, but I just had to. It was sweet, and fairly rich, but it was good, and before I was done with my portion, a lot of other people had tried it and agreed with me.

    Never thought I would eat a cat, tho...LOL

    I prefer Bald Eagle to cougar meat, but that's just me!!!:lol: It may be because they're more abundant here in Michigan.

    But seriously, someone posted something similar to this earlier this year and he took a cougar out in Wyoming or somewhere out West and he said he really liked the taste.

    I would think people eat them, why else would you hunt them if you don't eat them?? :confused:

    It's good and all, but the thing is, you're hungry again 30 minutes later...
