I've read books in which old time mountain men are quoted as saying that cougar was some of the best meat in the Rockies.

Never ate any myself.

That kitty would like to get the dog 1 on 1! Admire the cats and good hunt'in dogs, but you can't hunt 'em here in California. The wildlife is all out of kelter here in the state of fruits and flakes. May Montana have a healthy balance of predator and prey, figure mankind as part of the predator count, and many great hunts to ya'll.

Hey, do those dogs get after Bobcat if they run across one? Never heard of hunting Bob's with dogs.

So what are the legalities around taking the meat of a lion?

As long as it's a legal kill you can eat the whole thing, claws and all if that's your bag.

Up here it is how a lot of bobcats are hunted.. Bobcats traveling threw the woods is hard to find. Although a few hunters will get 1 or 2 crossing the road most are shot with hounds. They also do some guided hunts with hounds for bobcats as well.

In my native CO, they hunt a lot of cougar. Since it is classified as a game animal if you take one you are required by law to utilize the meat. I've had it a few times and it is good. Sort of a light colored meat with a real delicate flavor. Both times I had it, it was cooked in a slow cooker with spuds, onions and carrots. Haven't tried it fried or grilled so I can't tell you how that would be.

I'm betting if you chunked the tail into small pieces and prepared it like oxtail that would be good too. I've never shot one personally but it is on my bucket list.
