      I heard some old guys in their late 80's talkin about how they used to eat mountain lion steaks- but im not shure if they were being serious or just telling stories.

          I was in attendance at a barbeque here in Wyoming about fifteen years ago and was asked by the person giving the party to assist him in transporting some platters of meat to the outdoor grill. I remarked that the plate of pork tenderloins certainly looked exceptionally good. He replied something like "don't eat that shxx, its cat". Consequently I did not touch the finished cooked product but folks who did without knowing it was mountain lion remarked that it was excellent. I decided to stay with the black angus filets after first determining that all of my friend's horses were alive and well in the corral. Sometimes one can't be too careful.

            mountain lion = bear = buffalo = venison = turkey = chicken = everything. So, mountain lion = everything.

              If i shot it, or one of my hunting buddies shot it, i'd try the tenderloins and/or loins. Otherwise, not putting any cat on my table. And i don't like chinese food either.

                I have read that the old mountain men loved mountain lion meat and beaver tail above just about anything else.

                  If it tastes like bear I'd try it. Bear burgers are excellent. But the meat was mixed 50/50 with pork. It had a tiny bit of gamey flavor, but thats what I liked about it. No different than shooting a buck from MI Upper Peninsula.

                    Mt Lion backstrap is excellent. I prefer it with a mayo catsup hot sauce on the side. Cat back straps are large for the size of the animal. Don't turn it down if you have a chance, You"ll be pleasantly surprised. Convinced a PH in Namibia to try Leopard back strap, all found it to be quite good. Perhaps they were working on their tips.

                      Never tried it myself. I imagine if cooked right it could be OK. Probably better than what your mind would lead you to believe. I would think it may be somewhat gamy tasting and tough, I may have to try sometime, just to say I did.
