I am new here on the board, this is my first post.
Here in WA (prior to the ban on using dogs to tree a cat) they used to use a 22LR on them.
The reasoning was, bleed them out, then they will fall out of the tree once they loose consenous. This prevented the cats from leaping from the tree after being pluged with a high power round and fighting out with the dogs until it expires.
These days here in WA, unless it is a special permit for damage control, the use of dogs is out of the question.
Any standard deer hunting rifle is more than sufficient for putting a cat on the ground.

Good Luck,

Don't know about Cougar meat first hand, but I can attest to bobcat being excellent (cooked over a cedar fire with a touch of salt)!!! MMMMM!

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

I can tell you first hand Cougar is the best meat ON THE PLANET, when done right. I have traded Elk and prairie Antelope for Cougar, it is that good. It IS the other white meat, and must be cooked to 160+/- as you would pork.
If you have some you want to get rid of, some PM me and I will give you an address to ship it to.
