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 1.4 to 3.4 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.

YES ITíS HOT AND ITíS GOING TO GET EVEN HOTTER! THINGS HAVE DRIED OUR CONSIDERABLY SINCE MY LAST REPORT. AFTER THE FLOODS OF LAST SPRING AND SUMMER I NEVER IMAGINED ASKING FOR MORE RAIN BUT WE COULD SURELY USE AN INCH OR TWO PRESENTLY. A COASTAL HURRICANE HAS NOT EVEN BROUGHT US ANY BUT IíM SURE SOME WILL COME AT THE PERFECT TIME. ALL OF OUR CHUFA PATCHES HAVE BEEN PLANTED FOR THE TURKEYS AND DEER PLOTS WILL FOLLOW AFTER THE NEXT RAIN. EVERYTHING IS PLOWED AND FERTILIZED WAITING ON THOSE TIMELY SHOWERS TO POP UP.
SPEAKING OF TURKEYS, I HAVE NEVER SEEN A HATCH AS PROLIFIC AS THE ONE WE HAVE HAD THIS SPRING. POULTS ARE LITERALLY BEHIND EVERY BUSH. AT THIS POINT THE HENS HAVE HAD AN ABOVE AVERAGE SURVIVAL RATE WITH EVERY MATURE HEN HAVING 8-10. IF WE CAN JUST KEEP THEM ALIVE FOR ANOTHER MONTH THEY WILL BE HOME FREE AND ABLE TO SURVIVE THE ELEMENTS AND MOST PREDATORS AND WE WILL BE IN AN ENVIED POSITION OF HAVING PLENTY OF TURKEYS FOR YEARS TO COME.
THERE CERTAINLY IS NO LACK OF FAWNS AS WELL AS MORE AND MORE ARE SHOWING THEMSELVES DAILY. YOU CAN TELL THERE MUST BE PLENTY AS HIGHWAY CASUALTIES ARE BECOMING MORE NUMEROUS AS WELL.
ALL IN ALL THINGS ARE MOVING VERY WELL AND IN A TIMELY FASHION AS WE LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER GREAT AUGUST HUNTING EXPERIENCE WITH ALL OF YOU WHO WILL BE JOINING US. SOYBEANS ARE PLANTED IN MOST OF OUR HIGH VOLUMN HARVEST AREAS AND SHOULD MAKE FOR SOME HEAVIER THAN NORMAL BODY WEIGHTS AS BEANS ARE A VERY HIGH PROTEIN FOOD SOURCE. LARGER BEAN FIELDS SHOULD ALSO MAKE FOR SOME GREAT LONG RANGE SHOOTING FOR SOME OF THOSE ATG RIFLES THAT ARE MADE RIGHT HERE AT BUCK RUN! COME JOIN US FOR SOME GREAT FUN AND FELLOWSHIP!
