Our local “Fur Bearer Specialist” with the state game department insist Cougar (Mountain Lion) is very good eating.
The meat is described as “Fine grain” and mildly flavored.
They are large mammals, just like the deer they eat.
I know several people who do eat Cougar, we have an open season on them here, but you do need a tag.
A coat seems more a practical use to me than a wall covering or fragile rug.
Winter hides would be best.
Wolf coats are good too, maybe we can harvest some in the lower 48 soon.
FYI, house-cats are edible, but not palatable, the meat turns blue on cooking.
As some German U-Boat crews learned when they bought skinned “Rabbit” from Dutch children during W.W. II.
Oh well, maybe I'll make friends with the poodle down the street, just in case Obama is re-..... (I can't even type it - my hand refuses).
You just need to find a good cook-book from the (first) depression era.
Recipes will be found for Skunk, Possum, Muskrat, Snakes, alligator, etc., in addition to the game most Americans are familiar with.
The basic rule is that meat is meat, if you are truly hungry.
Our local library had an excellent old edition, I tried to buy a copy but it was out of print.
The particular book was more complete than modern books, it was illustrated with line drawings and gave explicit instructions for removing varied glands before cooking so the meat would not be ruined.
Check your history, Lewis & Clark often traded with Indian tribes to obtain a dog to eat, an occasional bear was a necessity as most game meat is “Dry”, having very little fat.
Maybe you just want to stock up on SPAM while you can. ;-)
It’s just a poll. Who cares
Voting in these polls is simple and I think well worth while.
It’s my take that we shouldn’t allow Leftist ideology to reign supreme in any place where we can advance the Conservative vision.
I know it can seem like a waste of time, but isn’t it better to have Leftists run into something that challenges their world view constantly?
Why should we allow them to run into places that reinforce their world view? Can’t think of a single reason.
Your take on this is not unique here. There are folks here to refuse to take part in the polls, claiming they are not scientific anyway.
My response to that is, who cares? Let’s not let the Left pretend their views are the majority views.
I’m a conservative, a gun owner, and still think killing this animal is pointless. They’re beautiful animals, let them alone and lets return some the wild back to America. Ya, he’s really macho alright, a 4 year kid could have shot the same animal, the gun did all the work, jump on it’s back with nothing but a knife in your mouth then maybe you’re macho.
