East Iceland is home to a thriving stock of between 6000-7000 reindeer, the reindeer was brought to Iceland from Norway in the late 18th century. The idea was to farm them, but Scandinavian style reindeer husbandry was not for the Icelandic farmer. The reindeer was never domesticated, and though they were placed in many areas of Iceland, they only survived and thrived in the east.
In order to hunt in Iceland you need to enter the draw to get your tag for your animal. The Reindeer are prospering, so about 1200 tags are issued yearly.
