Mt Lion Hunt
« on: February 11, 2020, 09:02:33 PM »
Hey Guys,

A good fiend of my just filled his tag on a Mt Lion hunt in Colorado today. Before he left I let him know I wanted all the meat I could get,  knowing he hadnt thought it was edible. Needless to say he is headed back to OK tomorrow with a cooler full of meat!

I do know the meat needs to be cooked to 165 to kill the trichinosis, and its allegedly a lot like pork. Ive got some recipes already churning in my head but wanted to get some additional ideas from folks that may have cooked it before.

Let me know!!!
Here is him and his cat.

Yep it is white meat and it does taste similar to pork but a little dryer. I've had it a couple of times.

Yes definitely eat! It's been chewy, but cut it then, pound it, flour, egg, Italian bread crumbs and fry for a great schnitzel! Bagged my first one this year, what a hoot.

I got one while elk hunting that showed up 20 yards from me. I loved the meat.  Can't remember doing anything fancy with the meat, but it worked whatever I tried.

Never followed through on this, but I took a back ham and made a crock pot carnitas recipe with it. Fantastic! Even the guys at the office who are Jon-hunters loved it. Very similar to wild pig or something of that nature.

Ill try the fried schnitzel next. Its vacuum sealed so I expect to make it last and while and get to enjoy it next winter in some other preparations as well.

Highly recommend mountain lion to any carnivorous foodies. Its great!
