Jackmaster, if you ever kill a cat, I will take the meat.  :)  You really don't know what you are missing.  PS your Dad is right, beaver is excellent meat, just keep the castor off the meat and it is VERY good!

Cougar meat is delicious!  I haven't been lucky enough to shoot one, but a taxidermist I knew let me take the carcass of a client that did not want it.

I'd do a rug with the hide as I'm not a big fan of full body mounts.


I'm not a big fan of full body mounts either, BUT, Had my cougar done full body.....never get tired of looking at it.  :twocents:

opps wrong kind of cougar  :chuckle: :chuckle: >:(
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

My dad has two cougar full body mounts, I'll end up with at least one, if I want it....  The funniest thing about his was when my dog would slink through the living room looking up at the thing ready to pounce from it's log beam perch.   :chuckle:

Cougars are worth killing just to eat them. Very good; kind of like a cross between pork roast and light turkey meat.

Great stuff! Sorry for the "misleading headline" but thanks for all your input. I strive to be a responsible hunter and knew you guys could school me. Haven't been close to a cougar or had a shot, yet, but they're in the area. Never saw anything other than someone carrying one. I love the big cats, but would appreciate getting one with my bow.

Am I wrong in thinking that you are required to take the meat and use it?  It is a big game animal.
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

I gave the meat to my taxi at the time on mine but regret not trying it. As far as the mount goes, it was a relatively close range head shot so the euro and any chance of a mount were gone, ended up with a soft tan that hangs in my entry way
