Caught a big Tom today and when I finished skinning and stretching him I got the thought that bobcat meat doesnít look half bad. So I cut out and froze the back straps. Just wondering if anybody has cooked bobcat before and whatís a good recipe?

I've read, and heard, that it's very good!

Bobcat is good eats. Smoked is good or baked/grilled in foil with some butter and spies to your taste. About any way you would cook pork but it may need a little oil to keep it from being too dry.

I have butchered every single 'cat I have ever trapped or shot. It is excellent. Light colored and every bit like lean pork. Imagine pork loin and you can imagine bobcat meat.

I fed it to a group of 20 and everyone liked it. I keep it just for gatherings where obscure meats are ideal.
