We offer early season hunts for velvet antlered bucks, and during the regular season you can harvest a buck and doe each morning and evening of every day you hunt! That's no misprint, that's four deer per day! Our season runs from August 15th thru January 1st annually, offering the longest and most liberal deer season in the entire nation. We combine unbelievable deer hunting opportunities with great accommodations and incredible food. Buck Run Hunting Lodge is the adventure you're looking for!
Located in Hampton County, South Carolina, where whitetail deer populations and harvests have traditionally been number one or two statewide throughout the history of deer hunting, Buck Run Hunting Lodge offers the serious whitetail hunter an experience he will never forget!

We hunt deer, turkey, and wild hogs!
We have an amazingly long deer season beginning in mid-August and continuing through January 1. Our velvet buck season is one of the most popular (see video). Ranking right at the top with the August hunts are the Mid-October to mid- November rut hunts. Hunter’s average from 1.25 to 3.25 deer per hunt depending on the number of days hunted.
We hunt over 8,000 acres with 175 different stands located over prime hardwood bottoms, agricultural fields, swamps and timberland. All stands are metal fabricated and designed to hold from 1 to 3 hunters depending on the situation. You will never see the same one twice. Be sure to check out our Big Buck Photo Album for photos of some of our hunter’s harvests.

WITHOUT A DOUBT THIS IS OUR FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR!! THE REDBUDS ARE BLOOMING, THE DOGWOODS ARE BLOOMING, THE TULIPS ARE BLOOMING AND EVERY WILD FLOWER AND SHRUB IN THE WOODS ARE BLOOMING. THAT ALONE IS ENOUGH TO PUT MOST FOLKS IN A GOOD MOOD BUT ADD THE SOUND OF AN OLD TOM GOBBLING ON HIS ROOST LIMB, THE SOFT NOTES OF A HEN CLUCKING AND PURRING AND THE SPITTING AND DRUMMING OF A STRUTTING BOSS GOBBLER AND YOU HAVE SPRING!!! WOW, ITíS HERE AGAIN AND YES I AM EXCITED!
OUR FIRST HUNT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTTER WITH 4 SUNNY DAYS OUT OF 5 WITH JUST ONE WASHOUT DAY OF RAIN. NO COMPLAINTS WHATSOEVER AS 4 HUNTERS HARVESTED 10 BIRDS AND MISSED JUST ONE. THE SECOND HUNT WAS A DIFFERENT STORY WITH 4 OUT OF 5 DAYS OF RAIN WITH JUST ONE DAY OF SUNSHINE. IT DIDNíT REALLY MATTER THOUGH AS 4 MORE HUNTER HARVESTED 6 BIRDS. I BELEIVE IT COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE PRODUCTIVE HAD THE WEATHER BEEN JUST A LITTLE MORE COOPERATIVE. THE THIRD HUNT WAS A TOTAL DIFFERENT STORY. THERE WAS VERY LITTLE GOBBLING, JAKES HARASSED HUNTERS NOT ALLOWING LONGBEARDS TO COME IN AND SOME JUST FLAT OUT COULD NOT GET ON A GOBBLING BIRD. IT WAS NOT A GOOD HUNT WITH ZERO BIRDS HARVESTED. IN THE TURKEY WORLD WE CALL THAT A LULL. WE SIMPLY DONíT KNOW WHERE THEY GO OR WHAT THEY DO. MARCH WAS STILL A GOOD MONTH WITH 4 ADDITIONAL BIRDS BEING HARVESTED BETWEEN HUNTS, AS 13 HUNTERS ENDED UP HARVESTING 20 BIRDS WHILE MISSING JUST 2.
WITH SOME TIME OFF FOR EASTER APRIL SHOULD IMPROVE AND HUNTERS ALMOST CERTAINLY CAN EXPECT SIMILAR RESULTS AS MID-MARCH. THANKS TO ALL WHO HAS HELPED MAKE TURKEY SEASON A SUCCESS THUS FAR. CONTINUED GOOD HUNTING AND MOST OF ALL KNOW YOUR TARGET!
