The cougars seem to be a lot more common at night, so you might try hunting then. Prickly Pear is mostly found in Mexico if my memory serves me.
Yeah, Prickly Pear is definitely in Mexico, it says it in the journal description, which I also still haven't opened up. I'm still stuck to New Austin. Like I said, I'm really trying to go slow through the missions. So I'm trying to dig through as much extra stuff as I can first. I wouldn't even be trying for the cougars if it weren't for the fact that I've seen them several times already. The always seem to be near the northern parts of the map, or on the mountain top on Gaptooth ridge. I'm doing a lot of gang hideout clearing, a ton of wanted posters, and so on.
Thanks for the tips though.
