Welcome to the forum!!! Taxidermy is a good thing to get into at a young age!!! I too have thought hard about muskox/ reindeer hunt but I'm heading to South Africa next year instead. Good luck young man!!
I feel like everyone on here has been there. Dream big and do what you can with your budget but don't forget your hunting roots. Just remember your an ambassador to our sport and eat what you kill.Hello Everyone,
My name is Reed Thoma and I am from Minnesota, USA. I joined AH this January and made a couple posts and realized I never introduced myself. I am 19 years old and have been hunting my entire life. I currently hunt Whitetail deer, waterfowl, upland game, turkey, and many species of small game. I have always wanted to go to Africa to hunt and since joining AH I have made a list of places and animals to hunt that's about a mile long. I decided I am going to start saving up money now and am looking at a ocellated turkey/curassow/guan hunt or a muskox/reindeer hunt as my first international hunt. I am also looking into hunting black bear, mule deer, and elk in the US within the near future. I have also begun to try out my own taxidermy and have done a pheasant so far, but come fall I am hoping to try out mounting ducks, geese, pheasants, and possibly a deer. So now that I introduced myself, I'd love to get to know everyone!
I hunted Africa when I was 30, and then I made the worst financial mistake of my life I got married and had a big family. I make 5 times as much money as when I was in my 30's and I am just barely at the point where I can afford higher end guns, hunts, and other things like that.
I Live in Savage, about 20 minutes south of the cities. I am going for general agriculture, don't know what I really want to do yet but I want to work in the ag industry.Welcome Reed! I'm from Minnesota as well. What part of the are you in?
And if you don't mind sharing, what are you going to school for?

Reed i should probably mention it is customary on here to expect a hunt report be written up for the community to enjoy reading after your adventure.
Hope you have time and a passport, or get one expedited
