Not bobcat, but I have eaten smoked mountain lion. It was OK, maybe the saltiness and smoke made it taste similar to ham. I also tried fried timber wolf. If you ever try it, make sure you have something near by too spit in! sick

That's what I thought they did. Even this year they were going to let me have my fisher skulls back. I just wondered why we need to bring them in if they don't want them. I would like to keep the cat carcass.

With the right prep and spices bobcat meat makes a good bait. A few years ago, according to legend, Rich Kasper got a lion carcass from a private zoo. The details are hazy but I believe the story is true. Sold it all and people caught a lot of fur with it.

I grilled backstraps from a fresh female last night. Olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh garlic. I seared it then finished it in foil. I cooked it much more well done than I ever would venison or most other wild game. I don't want to mess with toxoplasmosis or trychinosis. It was dry but the flavor was really good. My son and daughter prefered it over their cheeseburgers that I cooked alongside it. I made some General Tsao's noodles to serve with it. Now, we've been throwing around what we're going to name this meal???

Nice cat there. I was thinking of trying something similar with the sear first then foil.

A professor at NC State used to have a wild games dinner every year. He asked fur buyers to save bobcat loins for him.
