I am currently on the debt collection mission where I go up to the mountains to collect a debt from a bum. He doesn't have any money, but says I can keep the cougar pelt once I kill it in the cave.

Are there any tips on how to kill it?

I've died 3-4 times because the cougar jumps up from behind me. I may need my rifle to slow speed down. Please help me out.
