That one shot at around :50 where 7 birds came in and all 7 dropped and my buddy exclaims "Awww BABY!!" was awesome!

That is pure heaven right there. −10, blue sky with a little wind and those birds dropping on the decoys.

Had Mountain Lion for supper. I'm telling you, the best meat you'll ever have is Mountain Lion. Can't beat it.

You're not the first person who I've heard say that. I've heard it from a number of folks.

I've wondered why one would want to shoot one...except for a trophy. I'm just not a trophy hunter. I guess it'd be kind of cool to say I did it...but I tend to be too practical to shoot one just to shoot it.

How would you compare it? What is it like? Don't say "just like chicken." Unless it is. How do you prepare it and serve it?

Some of my high school buddies (twins) still live in Southern Colorado and do a guide service part time. They posted some FB pics this past week of them prepping mountain lion meat.

Just like anything else I shoot, for meat on the table. Food. I have probably harvested over 500 critters in Wyoming. There is not one single hat rack in my cabin. Every critter I have shot went in my freezer. The only thing I shoot for fun and sport is prairie dogs.

Cook it like you do any meat. Fry it, roast it, etc. The taste is completely different than any other meat. It cooks up like pork roast. kind of stringy, more tender than anything else. By that, I mean you can cook up one elk that is tender and the next elk can be kind of tough. Mountain lion is always tender. Matter of fact, if you cook it over an open fire, its hard to keep on the spit when its close to done.

If I was going to compare it to something, I would say its close to well seasoned rib roast (beef) and it would be the tender meat next to the rib.

Dang I want to try it. Out here it's SSS and no one ever gets to cook one. There are so many now it's just crazy.

Making goose pastrami. I cured 4 breasts for 36 hours, then dipped them in apple brandy and rubbed the outside with cracked pepper and coriander. They're in the smoker now for a few hours..
